>Yeah, that’s it. It’s not calling your political opponents “Anti-American” that’s divisive and causing dire consequences, it’s being outraged at being called anti-American that’s REALLY dividing us. /rolleyes
Mosier, thank you for that. I watched Bachman that night on Hardball and sent Tinklenberg $50. Hamlet had me feeling rather pawnlike, there. Now I feel better again. The presidential race cost over a billion, whereas this little creepshow was but a million. I’d have had to donate $50,000 to participate similarly - and I can’t afford to get anywhere near the current legal limit as it is. What a nice way for us little people to feel part of the whole process. The Bachmans of the world create little political kiddie pools, so everybody can have fun!
>And if you think what she said was horrible, well then, you ain’t seen nothing yet.
“Horrible”'s a pretty wide bucket. Chinese abuse of intellectual property law is horrible. The Holocaust was horrible. The first few minutes after waking from surgery is often kind of horrible.
So, where, Nobody, do you think people are going? Who’s going to step up to the plate now? What will no longer be sacred? What will we see? More particularly, is there a particular political show to watch for it???
I can’t wait. I’ve always had this, I dunno, this thing for moral failure. I can’t get enough. It’s like cinnamon scent drifting from a bakery to me. Way back in 2001 - remember summer of 2001? Remember? So long ago. Bill Clinton was telling Gary Condit, “Hell, Gary, at least when I was done with them they were still breathing!” Life seemed so simple then, but also so safe, almost boring. The entertainment value of politics has become so concentrated, it’s like tasting the snaps on a 9V battery. Like they used to answer about why they listened to the Howard Stern show, “I want to see what he’ll say next!”
