Apollo 4 on column of fire

Does anyone have any ideas?

Read http://syndicated.livejournal.com/greenwaldsalon/130599.html, then answer me this: Why are the Democrats so electorally self-destructive?

My hypothesis is that by raising an impotent fuss the Democratic leadership and friends feel themselves ‘strong’, and that this is ‘strength’ to them. They do not look at themselves through imaginary eyes of others, and they listen only to campaign advisors who have the mentalities of potatoes and yams.

Funny thing is that these pseudo-Democrats probably will win big in November despite themselves, because the ‘Republicans’ also are divorced from ‘reality’ in their own way and are harming themselves in their own way—but the Democratic leaders will convince themselves they won big because of their cleverness.

A quandary

During the Air America cruise last week, Randi Rhodes and a gay man named Brian fell in love with each other.

They are on the phone now discussing the Democratic primaries and saying how much they love each other, on the air.

Mystery solved?

Randi Rhodes says Obama got those clothes in Kenya, not Somalia as has been reported. That changes things a bit with those cases where people were saying he should be proud of his heritage. It’s still crap but in a slightly different way.
