    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2E1SLJgATvM]YouTube - Rachel Maddow guest, author Frank Schaeffer, summarizes The Right Wing[/ame]

    I mean, this is really what we need to do is just move past the crazies on this board, and others that take these positions because they are irrational, and facts don't matter.

    The adults need to just move on and let the children blow each other up in the sandbox. I think Frank says it well. Thoughts?

    Are you trying to make a point? If so, what might that point be?

    You gotta be kiddin'.

    Nothing in the world says snotty elitist like marginalizing any opposition to the position of children. Which, in the obvious Hegelian model this is, elevates the person making such a haughty evaluation to the position of the parent.

    Someone does indeed need to grow up, and it ain't the ones being portrayed as the children by the OP's smug asshole in the video.

    Little wonder he ended up on the program of GLBTNBC's leading smug snotburger.

    Interesting opinion from someone who seems to suggest that constant warring is prefferable to constant peace.

    While I really can't bring myself to actually watch Rachel Maddow right now... my intense dislike of talking heads is really hitting me today... I did watch the first 10 seconds before I had to shut it off.

    How do you feel about the point the talking head made:

    35% of conservatives apparently feel Obama is in fact the anti-Christ ???

    Do you think that's a healthy attitude?

    Source?

    Are the alleged "conservatives" self-identified or presumed so by the pollster?
