Buchanan and politics
Ha, wow. Now that I have the site actually done, I have to fill it. That didn’t seem as daunting before as it does now. I have a few things that I’ll write about eventually, but I don’t want to start in on them just yet.
I know – let’s talk politics. Clearly everyone has gone crazy in the past year. Like, really crazy. Just today, Pat Buchanan asked:
Indeed, of the last seven justices nominated by Democrats JFK, LBJ, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, one was black, Marshall; one was Puerto Rican, Sonia Sotomayor. The other five were Jews: Arthur Goldberg, Abe Fortas, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Stephen Breyer and Elena Kagan.
If Kagan is confirmed, Jews, who represent less than 2 percent of the U.S. population, will have 33 percent of the Supreme Court seats.
Is this the Democrats’ idea of diversity?
Now, I know that I’m giving a platform to what Buchanan has to say, but come on – the Jews? Really? We’re back to good old-fashioned anti-Semitism, I suppose.
It’s nice to know that, despite the fact that people everywhere are trying to outdo the last person to do something really ridiculous, there are still some glimmers of sanity. Consider LittleGreenFootballs. Pre-9/11, it was just one guy’s blog about biking and random crap. After the towers fell, though, he sort of went off the deep end and became fairly anti-Muslim, and his readers followed. Since then, though, he’s really pulled it together: he’s very against the teabaggers, Creationists, Glenn Beck, Glenn Beck fans, and homophobes. I actually got the link for the above quote from glancing at LGF earlier in the day. Obviously I don’t condone everything he writes, but some of the stuff he publishes, like a set of pictures of stupid teabagger signs – referred to as Teabonics, is actually pretty good.
And if nothing else, it makes me happy that there are still some people who haven’t permanently descended into this anti-government rhetoric that’s become so strong as of late. Finally, I’ll leave you with a quote from the President. Here he’s talking about the Republicans:
After they drove the car into the ditch, made it as difficult as possible for us to pull it back, now they want the keys back. No! You can’t drive! We don’t want to have to go back into the ditch. We just got the car out.
