  • Commented on Keith Olberman Questions America’s Religious Tolerance
    There's much in your comment that might generate a response, but I have a question. Specifically, what part of Olberman's statement caused you to write your response? I was unable to relate your statement to any substantial part of Olberman's...
  • Commented on Religilous Review
    I too enjoyed the movie, though I felt it conflates faith with superstition a bit much. It wasn't really a movie that made me reconsider my personal philosophy. It did however, make me laugh a lot, and reminded me of...
  • Commented on Links With Your Coffee - Tuesday
    I didn't realize you were in Jerusalem (which shows my American provincialism). I was there for the first time last month, and would love to have talked with you as part of my learning process. I think the positions that...
  • Commented on Links With Your Coffee - Tuesday
    Sorry for any confusion. My post above was in response to Jonathan Becker's 12:23 AM post....
  • Commented on Links With Your Coffee - Tuesday
    I'd written a response to your earlier post that said -- essentially -- "we don't agree on much other than your last paragraph, so let's just leave it at that", but my notebook ran out of power and I lost...
  • Commented on Links With Your Coffee - Tuesday
    both articles claim that israel describes its current activities in the gaza strip as "retaliation" for hamas rocket attacks. israel has made no such claim. OK. What do YOU think are Israel's reasons for launching airstrikes and killing 360...
  • Commented on Links With Your Coffee - Monday
    Thank you, Norm for posting the link to Ezra Klein's comment, called "Israel, Wrong". Aside from the immorality of bombing mosques and refugee camps and killing upwards of 400 in "retaliation" for series of homemade rocket attacks (which have killed...

    I've won once before (thank you, Norm), and if that doesn't disqualify me, I'd like to enter this drawing again. Thank you....

  • Commented on Links With Your Coffee - Wednesday
    The problem I have with Will's commentary is that, while he assails McCain decision making process, he defends the conservative line of BS that reasonable government intervention and oversight is tantamount to (gasp!) socialism A far better critique from the...
  • Commented on Palin - Gibson Interview
    “you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska” Well, shit, I can see a hospital from my apartment window. Does that mean I’m qualified to be the head surgeon? That's a GREAT line and Biden should use...
  • Commented on McCain camp: Obama's 'lipstick' remark disgraceful - Yahoo! News
    I'm keeping my fingers crossed that these ridiculous attempts at news will end when the candidates debate. I wouldn't count on it. The Republicans have little to run on, so their only chance is to run a campaign of...
  • Commented on A Question About Comments
    My opinion: When the comments are numerous (more than 20 or 30 per thread), hierarchical is better, as people can easily reply to specific posts. When comments are not numerous (25 or fewer per thread), chronological is better, as a...
  • Commented on Sarah Palin - Gender Card
    Jill -- Excellent comment. Your first line sums up my frustration with McCain's pick of Palin and the general reception she's receiving outside of the blogosphere. It seems that we Americans like new, shiny and pretty things. Hopefully people will...
  • Commented on Links With Your Coffee - Friday
    I still think it's a smart political choice for McCain (for reasons I stated above), and I expect that Palin will appeal to a wider range of non-Internet-oriented voters than many of us want to believe. However, I do want...
  • Commented on Links With Your Coffee - Friday
    The selection of Palin looks like a smart move by the McCain campaign. Young, attractive, reformer, ardently Christian, pro gun, pro death penalty, and very popular in her state. By not picking Romney, McCain reinforces his (phony) message of an...

  • Commented on It's Biden
    Adam, thanks for the youtube link (and the quote). The expression on Biden's face at the end of the quote is priceless....
  • Commented on Edward Kennedy's Speech
    Luckystarr, I respect your view, but I disagree. I consider health care to be in the same category as education, fire and police protection, and legal representation. These are rights we should be able to expect simply because we are...
  • Commented on Campaignin
    For a neutered-of-all-feeling political video, it wasn't bad. In fact, I though it was clever at times, and it's far better made than their previous efforts. Yes, it's a bit out of date, and it's safe, centrist political commentary, much...

  • Commented on Gore Endorses Obama
    As a Clinton voter, I'm still waiting for a non insulting reason why Hillary needed to be replaced as the nominee, and until i get one it's Nader 2008 for me. As a Clinton supporter myself, I'll try to...
  • Commented on An Experiment
    228+400 = 628 I have no idea when Attila the Hun rampaged through Europe (without looking it up), so I'll just go with my phone number guess as to its end: 628...
  • Commented on Not Alex
    Here's a fact that will blow your mind: some people have the concept of greater sacrifice and contributing to the nation, not just taking and taking while continually bitching about how horrible things are. I agree wholeheartedly. The people...
