“i guess people have the ability to learn compassion but i think it's an uphill battle when it's been beaten into our heads from birth that money and material wealth defines the "winners" in this country. caplitalism looks great on paper, but from a societal stand point, not so much. i find it funny when Ryan and R-Money talk about morality when they defend Ayn Randian policies in government. you are correct, this country has some really messed up priorities.”
“The Right has all kinds of extremists (limbough, miliken, coulter, beck, and the nut case from Minnesota) and just like these others, that is who she fires up, the extreme rightwing base. That's it. She'll never go farther than a talk show. As America becomes more and more diversified, the more the far Right will become impotent politically. Independents would never vote this clown into office. What bothers me is she's the kind of empty headed personality that the major networks love to pass off as newsworthy, so we'll be stuck with her soundbites for the next year. Thank you to the person who added the mute button to my remote.”
"ifill is wrong. bible thumpers aside, all the women i know think palin is a bag of fluff"
but this is America. think of our electorate. anything is possible and that is frightening. a rational mind would believe there is no way this woman could be elected. but just a short 5+ years ago, W. was elected for a second term. anything in the land of infotainment, is possible.”
