Subject: RE: BS: RFKennedy, Jr., - Palin quotes fascist
LH, I have no intention of starting a battle here, but thats not really much of an answer. I'm sick of hearing that after years of being pushed around, we can't fight back. You call that partisan sniping, I call it the day I finally smacked the school bully in the head after putting up with a lot of shit for a long time. (Yes, that happened to me). Telling us to mark our calendars, or that this is a fortuitous moment is not fair either. If the shoe had been on the other foot, the gasbags (O'Reilly, Limbaugh, Hannity, Beck, Coulter, et al) would have been raking the Dems over the coals for its inclusion.
Let me put this another way. I am royally pissed that again, I have to hear that because I express OUTRAGE, I have to mark it on my calendar in a year to see if I remember it, all because I'm supposed to refrain from fighting back. I am concerned about a lot. Look at the thread Amos started about just the issues that are important. I have a lot of concerns for this country. Obama is not a saviour, but he represents good in my opinion. I can talk issues, I can talk about what I think needs to happen in this country. I can also say that quoting from a man who was about as un-American in character as almost anyone I can think of is highly dubious and questionable, and speaks to the darkest fears amongst some people.
I'm sorry, thats a rant. But I feel this country is the schoolyard now. A lot of us are sick of being picked on by the bully.
