So as to avoid anyone claiming that I’m taking things out of context, the original quote here is from one of Mike’s Messages on his own web site.

bq. The Iraqis who have risen up against the occupation are not “insurgents” or “terrorists” or “The Enemy.” They are the REVOLUTION, the Minutemen, and their numbers will grow — and they will win.

I don’t think that Zarqawi is a) Iraqi or b) a good guy. It’s become a little easier to tell good guys from bad guys in the mideast these past couple months. The guys with the machetes sawing off heads on television? Not good guys. Not revolutionaries, not minutemen, not at all like John Paul Jones. Are the Moore fans going to equate the al Qaeda jihad with the Declaration of Independence next?

I agree with many things Moore says, I really do. I find it amazing how totally uninformed many Americans are about their own country and the world in general. Folks need to find many sources of information and make up their own minds. The parrots that babble Moore quotes without any hesitation get as much respect from me as the dittoheads with their Limbaugh crap.

Kerry, Edwards May Not Vote on Gay Marriage

bq. While Kerry and Edwards oppose gay marriage, they argue that it is an issue that should be left to the states to decide. Both senators support civil unions, which would give gay couples all the legal rights of married couples without letting them wed.

That ranks up there with “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” in the pantheon of stupid weaselly ways of having both sides of an issue. If you think gays can have all the rights of married couples, you think gays should be allowed to marry. Otherwise, it’s just semantics.

But, who has ever seen a politician with a spine?
