    Good post. This was the kind of attitude that Reverend Wright was referring to when he made the controversial goddamn America speech. He was saying goddamn to the American of people like Palin who view people who disagree with them as unAmerican. Well, goddamn Palin. The fabric of America is rich and complex, and you can be left, right, or middle of the road and still be an American. Liberal Massachusetts is just as pro-America as conservative North Carolina.

    I agree that it was a dopey thing to say but am I reading you right? You're defending Reverand Wright? Your guy Barack tore him to shreds for that remark and has since put light years between he and the Reverend.

    I hope that Obama only ripped him to shreds because he felt it was politically necessary. But, I've read the god damn America speech, and it's really a powerful and beautiful speech in many ways. I would only criticize it for ignoring the progress that has been made, but his criticisms are founded in fact, and his god damn America is about the evil that America has done.

    Try reading it. You might not agree with everything he says (I certainly don't), but in the context of his speech, god damn America is far more rational than any MSM soundbite could represent.

    Derek's Site - Pastor Wright's "God Damn America" Speech -- The Full Text

    And it's really no worse than Palin's comment, suggesting that there are anti-American communities in our nation.

    I watched one episode of Maher where the one of the guests was Christian Amanpour. I was greatly disapointed in her as she was in glow over the choice of Palin. It didn't matter to Amanpour that Palin was not qaulified or knew nothing, the bottom line was that she was a woman, thus, was an outstanding choice.

    I have and EXTREMLY hard time picturing Amanpour being pro palin. From what i've read the choice of palin is seen by most womens groups as an insult,and just not qualified a horrific choice for VP. I even read articles by conservative women slamming the choice. Amanpour is a very bright women,I'd have to see the clip of her actually being all tingly about palin. Then I still would believe she was being sarcastic. Besides she's not American shes British and Iranian so why would C.Amanpour be so giddy about and American candidate?

    He's right, Amanpour was very disappointing in that episode, and she did speak positively of Palin.

    Dems are so scared shiitless over Palin -- while praying 24/7 that Biden doesn't step on his willy again (which everyone knows will happen anyway, there's no stopping that fruitcake) -- that they have to dog her like she's the fox in the meadow. Well, fox she may be, but I don't think this goes over big with any except the rabid lefty base. So, keep it up!! I trust America to choose the best candidates.


    :D

    C'mon... she was not aglow over Palin in that episode... She was largely playing devil's advocate, and if anything, was offering perspective for women's rights... About the most specific thing she said about Palin was that she "had a brass pair"....

    Mrs. Amanpour remains a top-notch journalist who was brought on a liberal talk show to provide objectivity in between two fairly liberal "hollywood wife swappers" in Shandling and Baldwin ... :rolleyes: .....

    Never thought you'd hear me say that, did ya?

    :bricks:

    Seriously, Amanpour didn't praise Palin...she praised women. .... Either way, it was a great episode overall. Especially New Rules.

    Here we are...

    "If there was a video of Barrack Obama standing in front of his congregation being healed by a black witch doctor, this election would be OVER!... But there IS that video of Sarah Palin."

    Yup.
