By his groveling, Maoist self=-accusation, I think Steele not only admitted that Limbaugh's is bigger, but Steele handed him his family jewels just to stay on Chairman Rush's good side.
Is there a Republican in public life who isn't afraid to stand up to Rush Limbaugh?Comment Posted By Geek, Esq. On 2.03.2009 @ 22:56
And here I thought that the business instincts of people who paid Samuel Wurzelbacher to pretend to be a reporter were unquestionable.
Seriously, though, I wouldn't wish financial hardship on anyone. Well, besides Bernie Madoff.Comment Posted By Geek, Esq. On 31.01.2009 @ 12:07
bet: I just assume that the logical flaws in white supremacism don't need to be pointed out. It's a vulnerability of mine when I debate the David Duke crowd.Comment Posted By Geek, Esq. On 21.01.2009 @ 19:08

Race-baiting while bashing Obama for being a race-baiter. Well done sir. Who says today's Republican base can't innovate while remaining pig ignorant and prejudiced?Comment Posted By Geek, Esq. On 21.01.2009 @ 15:23
And, until Israel stops *expanding* the settlements that will need to be dismantled for any shot at peace, I really can't take their claims of good faith or self defense seriously.Comment Posted By Geek, Esq. On 29.12.2008 @ 18:36
The idea of “proportionate response” is a favorite among liberals. It appeals to their sense of “fairness” and besides, it makes them look like statesmen.
That, and the rule governing the use of force amongst civilized nations for the past two centuries.
To put it another way: if force doesn't need to be proportionate, would you consider Israel carpetbombing Gaza until everyone was dead legal?
The whole point is that Israel would never do that and takes extraordinary steps to minimize civilian casualties despite their enemies shameful and evil method of embedding their military infrastructure with civilian housing. You know full well they would never carpet bomb Gaza. But if they had the means, could you say the same thing about Hamas?
There is no moral equivalence here - except for sophists like Greenwald and Klein whose arguments conveniently ignore the 800 lb gorrilla in the room - Hamas wants to destroy the Jewish state while Israel is willing to live with the Palestinians as long as they have security.

I don't recall the Republican blogosphere wetting itself when Joe Klein and Maureen Dowd were kicked off the McCain plane.
Then again, those members of the press are threatening Sarah Palin's First Amendment Rights--she says so.
Two columnists telling deliberate lies is the same as kicking three beat reporters off a plane?
Jesus Christ what an idiot.

I actually had a different take from the other lefty blogs. I noted that Schlussel has let the cat out of the bag (or, the elephant out of its cage) so that people like Ed Rogers can't say "Barack Hussein Obama" and then act like they're not engaging in bigotry. I also noted that even the most diehard rightwing and conservative blogs are repudiating Schlussel.

The problem is that the Bush administration has no real plan to define the mission or to put a time limit on the 'surge.'
