Hitchens On Sarah's War

Chris Hitchens is pretty bloody scary. Also, that mud mask looks hideous.

Christopher Hitchens is not someone that I'd want to have gazing dourly in my direction. In his latest article for Slate, he takes the Republicans behind the proverbial woodshed:
This is what the Republican Party has done to us this year: It has placed within reach of the Oval Office a woman who is a religious fanatic and a proud, boastful ignoramus. Those who despise science and learning are not anti-elitist. They are morally and intellectually slothful people who are secretly envious of the educated and the cultured. And those who prate of spiritual warfare and demons are not just "people of faith" but theocratic bullies.
And then he goes on to detail how Palin's egregiously ignorant remark about fruit fly research (in Paris!) belies an abhorrent anti-science mentality that everyone should be disgusted is within reach of America's highest office.

I don't know how Palin's fortunes will fall come Tuesday, but I predict that her political future will continue to be (at some level) a national travesty.

Vote or Shut Up is the filtered sentiment of "fight or die" as if there are only two options.

I caught your comment at Greg Ladens blog, and although I voted, I respect your sentiment. Isn't it amazing how the two party system has bred remarkably similar archetypes that can't see the forest for the trees because they are standing next to each other all the time?

The left has its "strong women" and "feminists" who are indignant every time some loudmouthed obnoxious human basher comes alon from the right; the PZ Meyers of the world are startlingly similar to the Bill O'reilly's in their mixture of fact, punditry, and pretention.

Two border patrolling, warring bands of chimps, nothing more, who are unaware that other species exist.

But in other news, it helps if you did allow anonymous comment.

PA systems are often used in small venues such as school auditoriums, churches, and small bars. PA systems with a larger number of speakers are widely used in institutional and commercial buildings, to read announcements or declare states of emergency. The simplest PA systems consist of a microphone, a modestly-powered mixer amplifier and one or more loudspeakers.There are four Types of PA System: Small Systems, Telephone paging system,PA over IP,Long line PA.
