    The Pawlenty & Hannity Show:

    Gather around, folks.

    1 – We’ll tell you about the American people, those “suckers” that voted for Obama in 2008.

    2 – We will tell you about “misguided” liberals and the radical, tone-deaf, uncompromising Obama administration.

    3 – We’ll tell you about what Pawlenty was doing in Iowa, the deep-fried twinkies, but not the “spanking” 1% vote he got.

    It was all just grand!

    What does Pawlenty have against law professors by the way? Isn’t he himself a lawyer? Talk about the kettle calling the pot black!

    The PRACTICE of law is about winning — ours is an ‘adversarial’ system where the winning side is assumed to be right.

    So, lawyers don’t like people (professors) telling them what the laws really mean, as opposed to what they’ve gotten away with.

    Republican politicians and their media defenders (Fox News, et al) have been screaming about the mosque in order to change the subject from the lingering economic difficulties of the disastrous Bush presidency, and its likely impact on the mid-term elections, because fear and tribalism sell.

    Of course, its not just the mosque their screaming about. There is also:

    1) Mexicans are taking over the country! (Arizona’s attempt at immigration law.)

    2) Gays are going to indoctrinate your children! (California’s Prop 8 found unconstitutional.)

    3) As blacks gain power, they’re going to their going to discriminate against you! (Shirley Sherrod’s speech to the NAACP, taken out of context.)

    4) Sharia Law is going to be US law any minute!!! (A sudden realization that mosques exists in the US.)

    Alert Drudge and the tinfoil hat sites – they will run with this story. It is a political post … I’m already sorry I mentioned it.

    I found some colored foil from a yard sale that seems to increase the wave lengths … I’ll be back…
