are-you-losing-the-debate-shout-racist

For a while now I have been worrying about liberals.  Not all of them, of course, just most of them; especially the supposedly smart elite ones.

What Would Martin Luther King Think of Chris Matthews?

Martin Luther King, Jr.

Like many people in our country, I was born after the African-American Civil Rights Movement.

Ever since the Tucson shootings, we’ve heard about civility ad nauseum. Everyone has been calling for civility including the President at the memorial service in Tucson and during his State of the Union address.

When I finally turned off the tv last night, it was 12:30 in the morning here in Washington state and, despite percentage signs and other stats flashing in red and blue inside my brain, I miraculously fell asleep.  Three Senatorial races were still undecided when I finally went to bed, Washington, Colorado and Alaska, and…
