    A letter to America: You Cannot be Serious | CommonDreams.org

    "...Ms Palin is a symbol of deep American introversion, of the fact that you have ceased to take yourselves seriously and, more important, don't much care who knows it. Arguments over the relationship between the wider world and your choices have become irrelevant. You have detached yourself, finally, from the global community. This is isolationism as never before conceived. "American" in my life has been lingua franca, for better or ill. Now you talk to yourself.

    And you talk, my friends, in the sort of gibberish that once you spurned. It's not about Ms Palin, as such. It is about the process that creates a candidate-grin manipulated to serve darkness, ignorance, fear, a war economy, and the flaunting of stupidity.

    Nice going."




    America for Dummies: A vote for McCain/Palin is a vote to further marginalize science and progress in America by supporting creationism (religion) as science.

    America's natural propensity to eschew intellectualism is fairly obvious, isn't it?

    Bit much. Bush was worse, and he was head of the ticket. So it sounds a bit hysterical to me.

    "...[D]oes your polity truly intend to suspend all disbelief, all debate, all thought, because of a well-groomed moose-killer?" I think the republicans have, a electorate weaned on TV and mesmerized by glamour loves the wacky religious nutcase.

    A vote for McCain/Palin is a vote against the fundamental principle of America, the right of the individual to lead their life privately without the government interfering.

    Pretty much sums it up. Now will come the wails from the right, "get stuffed", "none of your business", "shut up you ferriner".

    If that's a fancy way of saying Americans are dumb as a box of rocks, I agree.
