SDShad Hilary Clinton (96* d) RE: Hilary Clinton 31 Oct 01


Thanks for posting the link to the Hillary archive at NewsMax, Margo. I noticed in one of the articles there, they mentioned that the Hillary-getting-booed thing wasn't covered much in the media, which I'm not sure I buy, since I've read about it in several places now, but certainly, there are much more important issues to be covering in these times.

But boy, am I ever inclined to take most of what I see at NewsMax with a food-service-sized box of salt. Their tone is shrill, ideological, and unbalanced, even after September 11, where it seems to me we need to be just a smidge more unified than that.

If I ever go back to their website. After reading this hateful, unconscionable hatchet-job on John McCain, a genuine American hero, I don't know if I ever will. I used to go to websites like these under the maxim of "know thine enemy," to see just what kind of trash they're peddling, but after September 11, "thine enemy" has a rather different meaning. No American, except those in the White Power/White Patriot/Neonazi/Militia of Montana/Christian Identity/Timothy McVeigh fringe, is "the enemy" in the way that al-Qaida are. I don't care so much any more to read the words of conservatives who don't get that, and are still more concerned with their domestic "enemies" (read: all liberals, most Democrats, and anyone, like McCain, who doesn't hew to the party line on every issue) than with a very real, very murderous, very elusive, and very difficult external enemy. With lower Manhattan still a smoldering warzone, it strikes me, at the least, as a bit unpatriotic. I made the mistake of reading several of Ann Coulter's columns yesterday, and it's just too distressing and depressing, too divisive and harmful to American unity.

Sorry for veering into off-topic-rant territory like that, but I was positively seething after reading that article, along with the one that tore into McCain for suggesting that hey, you know, it might be a responsible thing to keep your guns in a locked cabinet (and I am both a liberal and pro-2nd-amendment and a gun owner, for the record). So...I wanted to vent.

Chris
