    You should all read the article in the Arkansas Times about the boy who won’t say the Pledge of Allegiance, then read the comments posted by all the “rednecks” on the tab behind the story. They are overwhelmingly supportive of the boy, and the very few who aren’t are being soundly trounced by those who are! It’s enough to make you want to move to the hills.

    The funniest pro-pledge argument concludes that, “If homosexuals truly want equal rights they need to embrace typical conservative social values and try to blend in as just another couple not some special, weird minority that needs special treatment and doesn’t believe in anything American.”

  2. TANK says

    GUIDO INVASION! NOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! Is there a more perfect word to describe a subgroup? I didn’t think so.

  3. says

    you know, ‘guido’ is a pretty offensive word as it is, regardless of how those folks act. do you dare call any other ethnic ‘subgroup’ by a stereotypical name, such as ‘tyrones’ or ‘mohammads’?

  4. TANK says

    Mama mia! I’ve never heard of “tyrone” before. To which group does it refer, and what’s the reference?

    Anyway, I just don’t think that these big mamalukes are that offended by being called guids. Obviously! They’re in a show where they’re characterized as such.

  5. JT says

    James : I agree. It should be offensive. We don’t say “tyrones”. But if Italian-Americans are able to overlook the repulsive “Guido” subgroup, I guess it’s not my place to complain.

    RE: Hannity Teabagger crowd count.

    OK, Sean Hannity acknowledged Jon Stewart was correct about the mis-characterization of the number of attendees at GOP anti-HCR rally.

    However, what else could he do? He was caught redhanded with his pants down in a boldfaced lie.

    I have yet to see the media respond to the Hannity excuse/apology that stated it was an “inadvertent mistake” as an equal lie. It is impossible for a TV newsroom to NOT KNOW that the fresh videotape of the rally was edited with old tape from the tape library. They knew exactly what they were doing & their aim was to deceive & mislead.

    the 10 year old rocks! i won’t be saying it either, although i haven’t said it in years anyway.

    Aside from it being performed in a church, “Corpus Christi” in Orange County is nothing new. Rude Guerrilla Theater Company in Orange County was the West Coast Premiere of the play in 1999.

    OMG. That Townhall dot com web site is the most loathsome, hate-filled site I have ever seen. If ever I’ve looked into the face of the enemy, it is there, vicious, ugly and full of rage.

    I am going to go take a shower now.
