Empty Words on Arlen Specter

This is pretty great and hilarious:

What the hell is a Tent of Freedom? Can I pitch one? More importantly,do words mean anything to what’s now left of the GOP? Is Jim Demint agreat Buddhist for demonstrating that words do not necessarily point toany meaning? Should I let go of my need to have words mean something?

yeah, the GOP is definately being pulled into crazy-land by the right wing extremists.
Even Senator Snowe today wrote an Op Ed criticizing the republicans for forcing out it’s moderate voices like Arlen Spector:
Paul Krugman’s take on the issue:
“What strikes me, however, is the extent to which this is a self-inflicted wound… we have a party that seems to be in a death spiral: the smaller it gets, the more it’s dominated by the hard right, which makes it even smaller. In the long run, this is not good for American democracy– we really do need two major parties in competition. But I’ll settle for getting that back after we get universal health care and cap-and-trade.”
And an interesting comment from that same post:
“One possibility is that the GOP could get far enough down its death spiral that the Dems could split into two parties: one genuinely progressive party, and the other a Blue Dog, more pro-business party”

taking days to approve comments is one of the surest way to kill an online community… comments should be auto approved, and there should just be a flagging system so people can remove anything offensive for review.

I believe comments are pre approved, Tony. We are just getting used to the interface. Did you have another comment get nixed?

maybe they’re only pre-approved for you registered users, because that first comment I posted took a couple of days to show up here.
