Taibbi: Button man

The cover of this issue of Rolling Stone also make a comment along the lines of being "In the Enemy's camp".

We face GENUINE ENEMIES in this world. When Americans see fellow Americans as ENEMIES, we are in the midst of a new civil war. Will the leftists start shooting if they again lose the presidential election?

Maybe ananchist boy should go undercover 10 weeks with the Palestinians or Iraqi resistance. He'd learn about "enemies" real quick (possibly at the end of a knife). Heck, he could seek out a jihadist cell in Iraq and learn firsthand about the bloodshed they are quite openly discussing.

My comment should have read "seek out a jihandist cell in ENGLAND". They openly recruit at some mosques and have held victory celebrations on the anniversaries of the 9-11 attacks.

The Bush/Cheney campaign shop sells football jerseys. I don't suppose we could get the Spalding Group to start selling them with "BUSH LIKE ME" across the shoulders instead of just "BUSH"?

I've seen Democrats are evil and the enemy for some time now.

Guilty as charged.

All that condescension in one, tiny little man.

Truly amazing.

I've read Mr. Taibbi's columns in the NY Press for some time now.

I've formed the ditinct impression over that time that he doesn't really care much about the truth.

One can assume that approximately 90% of this article is made up out of whole cloth and 100% of it is embellished.

Perhaps instead we should call the Orlando office and see if this man (picture included) ever actually worked there.

I've googled it - it appears there is no "Federation of Black Republicans for the Republican Party of the State of Florida"...

"When Americans see fellow Americans as ENEMIES, we are in the midst of a new civil war."

Glad you noticed. So are you prepared?

That was my impression. There's not a bit of truth in this article.

Are you kidding? Where have you been. They are already shooting.

Just search FR for articles about shootings at BC04 offices.

Gosh...he almost made a human connection.
But then switched back to his own particular brand of human frailty.

The thing is...he was an imposter, the people he was with were not.
He pretended, they were candid...Who is the 'less human' for it?
Its all too easy to hear the 'confessions' of a person while acting under a pretense of friendship.
Then to turn around and print them up...
You have to wonder if this persons 'real friends' will now wonder how sincere, genuine, hell, even human he is.

Will they? You haven't been paying attention to the bullet holes found in windows, to gangs of union thugs invading and break-ins all at Republican offices.

I stopped reading at "society guarded by a clone army." It became painfully clear where this article was going.
