    Can we put all of them on an ice floe somewhere so we don’t have to listen to their hateful rhetoric? Didn’t we get our fill with those Palin rallies? Orwell was right about the two minutes of hate, except he underestimated the duration.

      There really isn’t any military solution to this problem, for either side, or any side anywhere

    this is what colin powell was talking about… 

    …in terms of how we’re going to be perceived by the rest of the world. Why am I having deja vu about the 60’s?

      Hi David. I had to mention that the young lad is the spitting image of Paul Sunday from “there will be blood.”

      “Do you think God is going to come down here and save you for being stupid? He doesn’t save stupid people, Abel”

      PS: Can you hook me up with a plane ticket out of here and a place to stay if McCain pulls this one off? How about somewhere tropical?

      That might have been Eli Sunday, actually.

      My daughter teaches at a small college in N.E. Ohio and many of her students come from the local rural areas. The atitudes they bring are not too far from what was heard on the video. It is a real struggle to teach critical thinking skills in such an environment and at times she is frustrated. I tell her that is her most important job – not the subject matter, but to break through old habits of thinking and to show how to make decisions based on evidence.

      She is still fairly idealistic and is doing her best. But for every kid lucky enough to go to college and maybe change their mindset, there are thousands more who will only get more set in their ways.

      I’m not so sure I blame the people of Ohio – they have seen factories close and good jobs leave. Why should they think anyone in power knows anything, much less cares about them?
