I wonder if she had any clue of McCain's connections to ACORN in the past

So we have busloads of people from out of state coming to volunteer at our campaign office over the next 7 days. Things are getting crazy. Virginia hinges on this region.....no pressure.....

Lettuce analyze just one question, because I'm a former Journalism student and a current English student I can see something really really fucking weird about this question.

Quote:
Now, you recently said, "Mark my words, it will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama." But what worries many people is your caveat asking them to stand with him because it's not going to be apparent initially that he's right. NON SEQUITUR WARNING Are you forewarning Americans that nothing will be done and that America's days as the world-leading power are over?
..."nothing will be done": Who the hell thinks that Obama will crap his pants should a second 9/11 will occur? Does George W. Bush hold some sort of mystifying trump card on all national tragedies? Wouldn't every President do what he did following the initial days of the attack? Throw an opening pitch at a baseball game? Denounce terrorists? What exactly is this question getting at?? Why is it that Bush considered to be heaven-sent on his 9/11 reaction?
IF that is the case, then what does it say about that as he now has an extremely low approval rating, due in part to his failure to capture Osama Bin Laden like he promised to seven years ago? Isn't that a more relevant part of the issue at hand?

Hot diggity dog, even the non sequitur has a non sequitur. Quite a feat.

I've got a question for Mr. Biden now: Is it true, Senator Biden, that Barack Obama was simply cloned from a proven sample of Karl Marx hair mixed with the blood of a Kenyan shaman with a thirst for Christian blood?

The liberals have radio talkshows, and they don't do so well because it's not really hard to know what the liberal point of view is. It's saturated out there. If there is a demand for ideas you have to compete. It's weak to have government force them off the air.

Anyways, this kind of martyrdom will just create more sympathy.

The reason they don't work is that most left leaning folks don't need a preaching to the choir environment, in fact we fear it...

Who said anything about forcing them off the air?

I'm not sure who you think is being a martyr...

I think it comes down to commuting methods and durations.

Well I'm in my car all day and I listen to NPR or right radio most of the time. One to get informed and one to know the enemy. When I lived in Chicago, that market actually had Air America, I listened a few times but found myself bored, now that I'm back in Texas I don't even have access to it, I think it's illegal here.

It was a smug assertion, and having watched people who question a leftist consensus get tarred as racists, homophobes and misogynists I think that "the left" is just as prone to conformity as the right.

Not to mention the tedium of listening to people agree about how GWB is the worst president ever, that global warming is all his fault, Iraq was a land of chocolate rivers before 2003 and that conservatives (unlike progressives) are all a bunch of religious know-nothings who believe in censorship, enforcing their social values on society and attacking social welfare programs (it's all only partly true).

Fair enough. Yes, all "sides" have those that need the safe haven of "these people think like me", I've just noticed that those that listen to Rush, Hannity and the like seem to need that pat themselves on the back-we're the true Americans, we're the moral ones, science isn't always right, etc etc than most people do. And I'm not saying it's a conservative thing or even a Republican thing, it' just that small part of America that listen to Rush as their only outlet for information.
