And Kimstu, I am surrounded constantly by people (including members of my own family) who make that Chomsky/Zinn critique of American foreign policy even under Democratic administrations. Of course people have the right to make it – you know I am a strong advocate of freedom of speech – but I don’t want them in my party. I believe in having a big tent, but not to the point of including people who casually characterize the mainstream of the party in such slanderous terms.
I don't really care why you keep wrapping piles of shit in tobacco leaves, but you can't trick me into smoking one.
