Isn't it amazing to see what a small group of imaginative, good-humored and committed people can do?

And we didn't have to overturn and burn any motor vehicles, or strip nekkid and spell out "Garofalo," to get all the media attention, either. (Thank God!)

OK. Where's my secret decoder ring?

The one you promised was in the mail. ;-)

I guess crow isn't real digestible.

You're being much too anyalytical. The whole right/left controversy can be explained very simply. We're right and they're what's left.

Yeah, stick it to 'em fox, the only people to tell us the truth - Europeans are cowards and we should go get all the damned terrorists now. Fox fights the liberal bias like the communist CNN and MSNBC. They shouldn't be allowed to broadcast.

See -- I think your post #40 above was very witty. :) It's particulary funny because, like all really funny things, it has the element of truth: there are Plenty of leftists out there who would believe your post 40!

Ironic, how Todd Gitlin speaks of a "high pitch -- a flaming red alert" with an article that is composed with, well, a high pitch, and reads like a flaming red alert!

Clearly, this guy is upset that the U.S. won the war, and that the glories of Marxism don't smother our society with its oppressive love. A mournful piece that seems to lament the fall of the Baath Socialist Party. An ode to fallen comrades in Baghdad and Hollywood.

Give him a Garofalo!

"You know, we're an all-in-one, one-stop shopping web site [...]"

Hey, a lot better than Democratic Underground! I registered there, and all I got was a Palestinian flag, a copy of Mao's Little Red Book, a balaclava and can of red spraypaint (for "protests"), a "Death to America" tee shirt, a picture of Bill Clinton with smeared lipstick on it and a bottle of French wine.

The Free Republic gives out much better stuff!
