I'd be interested in being directed to a "devastating" critique of liberalism made by the likes of Conor Friedersdorf. The lion's share of Mr. Friedersdorf's work appears to be overwritten, pedantic affirmation of his liberal colleagues' (The Atlantic, The Daily Beast) talking points regarding movement conservatives. To the best of my knowledge, not once has he criticized Andrew Sullivan's utterly deranged obsession with Sarah Palin's gynecological history. It also seems to me that the self-selected "intellectual conservatives" seem to spend far more time attempting to read their movement brethren out of the GOP than forming a robust, coherent oppositional philosophy.Comment Posted By Pat On 7.10.2009 @ 12:46
There is a clear distinction between citizen organizing to make sure they have a voice in policy, and a known astroturfer using funds and resources provided by large corporation to organize paid, professional "unresters" into a political pressure army perverting one of our last truly democratic process, town halls.
Astroturfing and mud-slinging are not the unique appanage of the Right, but of late they have been using such tactics - as well as argumentum ad hominem and straw man attacks - with a deliberate glee that should disgust anyone that really believes in freedom and justice – as opposed, say, to well-crafted sophisms, lies and half-truth design to manipulate the public opinion.Comment Posted By Pat On 5.08.2009 @ 16:23
The fix is in!
After the 2008 race, the public will know why America has never put a boy in to do the job of a man - whether that criteria is met by race or by gender.
No one can say we were not warned; the harping of many a testimony focused upon that very point during all of the primaries.
No one should be surprised, therefore, when the spectacle of Obama isn't irresistible to the majority of Americans. It's nearly over except for watching the slaughter - which most women don't care to watch. Few women watch prize fights or slugfests.
What is there then to discuss?Comment Posted By Pat On 22.06.2008 @ 10:15
I can't support McCain. If he won the Presidency he could force the Republicans in the Senate and Congress to side with the Democrats on immigration, anti-business legislation, tax increases, socialist health care, carbon emissions etc. etc. Better to have the GOP fighting Hillary every inch of the way. But it won't come to that. The base won't support McCain, except grudgingly, and the DNC/MSM will do to him what they did to the last old Senator the GOP put up. Why else do yu think the MSM have been so keen to label mcCain a shoo-in?Comment Posted By Pat On 31.01.2008 @ 16:44
Check this out:
Seems that TWA #800, Ramzi Yousef, uncle Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, WTC 1993, and 9/11 are more closely linked than the 9/11 Commission was ready to let on.Comment Posted By Pat On 22.10.2005 @ 20:36
