  1. Why can't people apologize and leave it at that without rationalizing it away with a shot at "the media"? (BTW - he's, in a way, dead-on. These stories do blow up beyond proportion. But to use those tragedies as some sort of human media shield ... what a clown).

    "It is also grieving to me that a minute-and-a-half YouTube video became the headline when there are earthquakes and cyclones and tornadoes and children being killed right here in our own city because of easy access to guns and those become stories on pages 18, 19, 20, 25 and 30," he added.

    Not the media's fault that he sounded like a raving idiot.

    And I agree that Hillary probably felt some sense of being entitled to be president this time around but I don't think it's because she's white. I just think she felt it was her turn.

    It's not a brave stance to run around telling people what you think they want to hear. Hell, even Rush can do that.
  4. It was the same garbage all over the New York Times story about Trinity yesterday. A deacon ranting outside about not talking to "the vultures" across the street wanting to talk to them. Everyone from congregants to some asshole selling T-shirts refusing to talk to the reporter.

    These dumb asses blame "the media" for this entire mess. Every "apology" is completely disingenuous. There is still a chance they may cost Barack Obama, one of their own, the presidency, and they lack the self-awareness to take any responsibility at all.
