Here's a Dummy to Kick Around
Jon Carroll hasn't come to my attention before, but he's pretty entertaining
:Why are the Democrats such weenies? Howard Dean makes the unremarkable statement that the GOP is the party of white Christians, and other Democrats run and flee and say, "Oh no, oh no!" And a Republican yahoo accuses Dean of "political hate speech." Neither "white" nor "Christian" is an epithet. A glance at the videotape from last year's Republican convention indicates that both characterizations are entirely fair.
I dunno, Jon, you got some way of telling at a glance whether somebody's Christian?And yet some Democrats think Dean is being too confrontational. We should be nice to the lying liars or people will think we're, gasp, partisan. "Partisan" is a good thing; it's what the Founding Fathers had in mind.
Historically stupid and inaccurate. There were no political parties when the Founding Fathers wrote the constitution, so it would be a little difficult for them to have had it in mind.
