    Yep and I would think that our election results and their misinterpretation of those are not helping.

    How could they NOT misinterpret the results with the left and MSM doing their level-best to misrepresent them?

    What we 'do' has little to do with the terrorists reactions and actions. They get us even less well than we get them.

    Not sure I agree. They sure were smart enough to ramp up the violence in Iraq pre-election. They did the same in 2004. While it is at the simplistic level at best, it appears it worked on the simple minds here.

    What kills me is that it is in black and white, proven fact that the enemy manipulating the media was a MAJOR factor in Vietnam; yet, the left marches on in lockstep repeating the same damned thing, and Joe Average believes the shit.

    It's one of those things that begs the question:" Just how stupid can people be?"

    A rude awakening I had at about 19 years of age, "I'm not that bright, but most people are a whole lot less." It sounded even then, like hubris. It wasn't.

    Someone the other day said something like, 'most posters on the left and right here seem brighter than those on most mb's.' I think it's true. Along with that, I think we pick friends and associates closer to our level, then can't get why most are clueless. :dunno:
