For some reason, I have this mental image of Bart Simpson at Kamp Krusty, sitting in his cabin, clutching his Krusty doll, rocking back & forth, and repeating "Krusty is coming... Krusty is coming" over and over.

There are fools out there who think Kerry will win a landslide. What about the fools who have him millions. This election is much too fun to watch and participate in as fools will remain fools.

I think those teeth missing in the gears you mentioned have been missing for a long, long time.

You're right; "intelligence" is their religion (as they would use "religion" - that which the lesser ones substitute for a lack of intelligence. As a "lapsed atheist", I think I know something about that worldview).

That's why they're sure what the "science" of climatology is telling us about global warming is true - it's scientific (or at least uses the vocabulary of science, computer models, charts/graphs - that's science, right?).

It reminds me of a blurb in the NYT book section for a Chompsky book ad - it threatened "... if you don't read this book, you seriously risk being ignorant".

Ignorance is normal - an otherwise intelligent person can be entirely ignorant about Chinese pottery glazing techniques in the 4th century, Turkish poetry from the 15th century, quantum physics ... perhaps when they say "ignorant" they mean "diverging from what they think".

They say "intelligence" - what they mean is chronically validated unctuous sanctimony.

I had the misfortune to get stuck behind a woman at the grocery store describing to the clerk her hilariously brilliant feat of putting a STOP BUSH sticker on her back window over the third brake light.
"It flashes 'STOP BUSH' every time I step on the brake!" She cackled.
She started spouting off about the debates and then she got all wound up, screwing her face into a mask of rage saying "Nuc-u-lar! Nuc-U-LAR!!!" The anger and ugliness I saw in that face really scared me. I have seen that same expression in old documentaries on the faces of German's yelling to the "Juden" on Kristalnacht. I really think the Left is self-destructing.
If this makes me guilty of invoking "Godwin's Law", so be it.

You say that like it's a *bad thing*, Mumblix.

(note to humorless Liberal Lurkers: it's a joke.)

It flashes 'STOP BUSH' every time I step on the brake!

There's a deep symbolic meaning lurking somewhere in there.

Well, I still hold to my prediction:

Agreed.Hopefully it's also not covered under their insurance.
