A RELATIVELY SHORT FOLLOWUP TO MY PJ MEDIA ARTICLE ON BI-PARTISANSHIP

Rick, the country in your appeals to moderation and reason just doesn't exist anymore. I've said this before: since the 2000 election, at least, we have been in a pre-civil war state of society. We are a bifurcated nation. There is no center remaining, certainly none that can hold. Calling myself a Tea-Partier now, or throwing in with Palin, or refusing to vote for RINOs or otherwise compromise, doesn't make me crazy, stupid or reckless. In fact, it reflects the cold reality of the present situation: we conservatives either prevail or we lose all. It's that clear cut. It will take a what amounts to a counter-revolution just to undo the damage of this administration. I personally don't think that's going to happen. I know I'm fighting a lost cause. But the line the base drew in the sand this year is as rational as it is emotional given the situation.

WHY WE HATE SOCCER SO MUCH

funny man: my poor attempt at Cracked humor aside, I do believe Americans have not adopted soccer - or football, call it what you will - precisely because it's European. All I mean by that is, "it's not ours."
Cars from Germany and wines from France are one thing, but sports are a much more visceral connection to national identity and culture. Conversely, I don't wonder why Europeans don't like American football or baseball. I get it. It's not the same as going to a Burger King. Forget the rules, hand-eye coordination and all that other stuff; sports is still the territory of totem poles and tent markings.
