and the beat goes on...

Who would have thought there'd still be so much to be outraged about (even after Bush has finally left the White House)? Well, what about Obama's intelligence appointment being stopped because of his "anti-Israeli" position (that means the guy doesn't follow the AIPAC line)? What about the idea of sending troops to the border to control a drug war that is totally equipped by American gun dealers? (Not to mention fueled by huge American demand.) And when Obama has the temerity to say he'll think about it, commenters on the story online make fun of that idea. I guess the US is so used to having non-thinking leaders that they don't know what to make of such a comment. Will we ever recover from this idiot dialogue that's in place in the atmosphere? No sooner does someone in the administration admit to nuance and subtlety than he or she is attacked for... what? Wimpiness, socialist tendencies, preferring other countries' citizens to our own... whatever.

The level of dialogue you are referring to isn't worth living as it has nothing to do with reality or at least very little. Obama has been a socialist for one sector of the country through his choice of Geithner.

According to them a wimp is someone who doesn't beat a disabled girl with a broom, as a joke. I don't think we can concern ourselves too much with their fear of thinking, aside of course that it is culturally terrifying.
