    Uh, yeah. This is MY favorite strawman:

    The sky is pink polka dot, prove it isn't...

    I know... I kinda liked that, too! Ignorance is ugly, isn't it?

    Very ugly. Very sick. God help the future generations.

    An aside. I had an 8th grader, gifted though a jerk. Not because of his politics, though he is 'democrat'-his parents are union.

    He asked me during lunch time, "What's with this guy in Iran? He says the Jews must go?" I told him my thinking, including that I don't think any country, save the US really cares. He wanted to know 'where this blame the Jew' came from. Trying to explain gnostics, Medieval, etc., in a minute was not really clear, but would give him some stuff for future research. He came back with, "George Bush is a slimebag in many ways, but so far he has backed Israel, he may not be as bad as I thought." Food for thought.

    Unfortunately, hate gets passed generation to generation.

    Well, FWIW, I don't think anyone who supports Israel doesn't understand that Bush has been more supportive of Israel than pretty much any other American President. I'm not a one-issue voter, though, and I have to balance his other policies against it.

    Cute story, though. ;)

    Not saying different. Wasn't meant as 'cute story' though, this kid was truly upset. Couldn't reconcile the 'lying President in Iraq' with the 'save Israeli nihilation President.' Then again, he's not matured.
