I see the spirit of Dewey lives on in the tone of tonight's comments. Lots of time and pretty thin skin it appears.

This used to be an excellent place for thoughtful discussion and debate. Obviously, it no longer is.

So long.

Moon--I was wondering the same thing. Did I miss something in the news that prompted this cartoon? (I ask that sincerely.) Because it's always enjoyable (I don't mean this sincerely) to read the same arguments that appear for EVERY Palin cartoon...and there have been many. I doubt that anyone's opinion of Sarah Palin has changed because of this board.

Fake pregnancy? Honestly? IQ score, though I doubt she's a genius, isn't exactly credible if the source stems from buzzfeed. C'mon. I can generate something in the next five minutes and have it posted to the site. It may be legitimate, but I wouldn't cite it in your dissertation. (Darnit, I know such question will generate a six page defense.)

And whether there are Bush-isms, Obama's 57 states, or a Palin quote, I for one am glad that my profession doesn't demand continual speeches and impromptu question and answer sessions, while all is recorded for posterity and manipulation. Many of you apparently do have such professions and are above folly. I applaud your perfection.

...or does he have to be taking his family for ice cream to be arrested?

If that were the case, this law would in no way affect your hypothetical illegal, correct?

Mr. Callahan,

If writing that a group of people is "not very smart" and "dumb," be sure that your post is mechanically and grammatically flawless.

Other than some cheerleaders who supported you yesterday, I can't imagine too many on your side welcoming your hate-filled posts, impropriety, and irrelevant links. But feel free to post; it makes the "repub/conservs" look better.

  1. Fox News certainly looks bad in this. Failing to acknowledge this drops credibility.

  2. To suggest that Fox News should never be trusted again is a shortsighted attempt to take advantage of a major blunder. CBS stills airs news. (Remember Dan Rather and the 30 year old memos? And Mr. Rather was "our most trusted journalist.") Toyotas still are being sold. BP gas still pumps at the station. The New York Times still informs.

  3. If the White House already deemed Fox News as a non-credible source, why would they use that as their source for decision-making/firing?
