What a line of BS. We need liberal ideology like we need screen doors on Trident Subs. You want to extend an olive branch TTLB, fine, they'll slap it back on your hairy paws. You want intelligent discourse? Try the nearest liberal wall.Posted by Ron Deaton at November 13, 2004 7:00 PM
Ron, based on the garbage that got spewed during the election campaign, your comment is on point. However, in a less partisan sense TTLB has a point. On a micro scale, in my experience, diverse opinion arrives at a better solution than homogeneous opinion. I believe the same can be said for the macro scale of governing this country and its subdivisions.Posted by Bill at November 13, 2004 8:03 PM
No. We need to fund a mass exodus of Liberals into Canada. I'd personally am willing to see to it that MI Governer Granholm gets her paperowrk cleared in record time.
Then, the Democratic Party needs to utterly detach from it's whacky constituents, and give us a moderate candidate. And I don't mean someone who campaigns as a moderate and policies as a liberal (/me gives Slick Willy Clinton a dirty look), but a real moderate. I look at it this way: the US collectively is moderate with a strong lean to the right. A liberal candidate won't counterbalance a conservative candidate as effectively as a true moderate candidate.Posted by Justin Moser at November 14, 2004 1:03 AM
Geez, RR, how many Iraqi women and kids do the "insurgents" have to kidnap or car bomb before you graduate them as "terrorists?" And how about their "consultants" from out of town?Posted by slimedog at November 14, 2004 12:18 PM
what slimedog said. to not call them terrorists does a disservice to their Iraqi civilian victims. Heck, i don't even think we should call them "insurgents," because that name grants more honor than those snivling turds deserve.Posted by Justin at November 14, 2004 5:43 PM
