We can all agree on Blagojevich's corruption

But you can't keep bigots from being bigoted while talking about it.

K-Lo: you better tell your kid about "Gay-Americans". They're going to find out about it anyways. And the difference between telling them at 12 and them learning about it at 16 is 8 years of collegiate experimenting that you'll have to find out about the hard way.

And after you get done with that, start working on "Gay-Canadians".

Semantics alert!

Publius, regarding the Bombay attacks:

Even more maddening though, India’s outrage and desire for revenge are absolutely reasonable.

No. Bad language. Revenge does not come from reason. It comes from something less than reason. It will never be "reasonable" to seek revenge. Understandable, yes. Reasonable, never.

However, when you get attacked and you respond to the attacks with a reasoned "Well, that was blowback for something I did earlier", you're name is Ron Paul and you're angrily shoved off the soapbox.

My comment wouldn't do this man sufficient honor. Just read.
