This is my site. Cool, huh? If you don't like it, well, I guess it lives up to its name for you, then.

We're cite checking an article by a guy who's younger than I am. Home-schooled prodigy, published a book 6 years ago, and another this year, whatever. Pure pretension, and IMHO, this article is more of the same. Writes for The American Prospect, which if you know your political magazines, ought to tell you enough to know that I'm probably not a fan. But I digress. This article about him is great.

Rush is an idiot, yes, I have to say it. More so for the drug thing than the race thing, but even I liked this article about the issue, but watch out -- the lefties out there can't stand this sentiment. Apparently, Graham is a racist because, well, I'm not sure. I think it's because she is condescending to the black family at the next table (even though she says in the article that her kids aren't nearly as well behaved, but I digress). The problem with this reasoning is that if you take it to its logical extension, you have to agree with John McWhorter, Alan Keyes, and other black conservatives who insist that affirmative action is -- wait for it -- condescending to black people!

Oh, the lefties also hate it that she only mentions black republicans. Sorry, I guess she should have mentioned Charles Barkley or something -- oops, he's a republican, too, umm... Isiah Thomas?

Also of note: Phil Hendrie, responding to Warren Sapp, who was responding to Limbaugh. I was so sad when they changed Hendrie's time slot in DC, I had to quit my job. (NOTE TO IMPRESSIONABLE YOUNGSTERS: This is not a suggestion that you listen to Phil Hendrie! Or maybe I should just say, don't ever call in!)
