I would surmise that Kathleen Parker possesses the “dried up old prune” mindset who will first condemn and second, not forgive. First of all AA is a very honorable and giving organization. Ms. Parker appears to be undermining and chastising AA because she obviously considers anyone who belongs to AA a loser. Ms. Parker has a problem with the fact that people are human, and she fails to see that people also have the capacity to rise to challenges and improve. Ms. Parker is quite lacking in those qualities. On the other hand, if Glenn Beck structured his get together by using some tenets of AA, that is a good thing. At least Mr. Beck is not hiding behind the guise of darkness like Ms. Parker.

Good point Ranger. Parker is using AA essentially as a pejorative here, a way of attempting (in a way that makes absolutely no sense) to undermine Beck’s success with his rally. AA has done a great deal of good for millions and millions of people and she is trying to use it as a prop in an ad hominem attack.
