"If 1930s Germans had blogs and were well-to-do white collar office workers, I think it's an open question whether they would have been as vitriolic in their hatred of media figures who criticized their Great Leader, as today's Obama supporters are."
Thank God Obama, and Hillary, and McCain etc etc supporters are more able to slam media figures than 1930s Germans.
Dropping a diary with a headline that had "racist connotations" from the recommended list but not changing the headline almost gives the impression a moderator thinks it is O.K. to post racist remarks just so long as they are restricted to certain areas.
Whatever is being drunk, it is not kool aid.
I wonder if it was beyond the power of that person to change the 'offending' word or to ask the original poster to change the offending word.
"Obama came out against it, mocking the idea as a gimmick, by saying it would only save individuals $20 a month".
What Obama actually said was "This is an idea that, when all is said and done, will save you - at most - half a tank of gas over the course of the entire summer. That's about $28. It's an idea that some economists think might actually raise gas prices. And without a plan to pay for it right away, it means that the money would come directly out of the fund we use to pay for construction projects, which could cost the state of North Carolina up to 7,000 jobs".
Hillary has already lost the nomination - she can't even win it by her supporters spreading untruths about Obama.
Don't give McCain a 'get out of jail free' card when he comes up with bad ideas. Cut his hand off, not the hand of the person who will be running against him in the general election.
"I for one, intend to say thank you to Senator Clinton for keeping the great U.S.S. Democrat on course".
Last time I heard Senator Clinton was a boxer channeling Rocky.
Now some of her supporters thinks she is the Captain of the U.S.S. Democrat. Probably better to take the steering wheel out of her hands before she strikes an iceberg - they still have not got round to raising the Titanic.
(or to put it another way, the people that keep the U.S.S. Democrat on course are the ordinary party members and voters, not the party elite)
"Texas Darlin put a lot of time and effort into a worthy piece. It was selected to the Recommended List by popular vote".
Of course, some people save a lot of time and effort by recommending diaries without reading anything much beyond the name of the author.
"The same people who destroyed Kos, have followed the Clinton supporters here".
I do not agree with that characterisation as to what has happened, but for the people that do agree, perhaps they should ask themselves if it would have been better to fight the Kos people in their own village rather than run away, come here and destroy this village.
"She has 22 years as the first lady either of arkansas or the USA during that time she had much more impact on policy than any first lady before or since. Bill Clinton in 1992 said as much."
If Bill Clinton said it, it must be true.
But if you rule out First Ladies which Bill may be over looking, such as Edith Wilson after Woodrow was incapacitated, what is left is First Ladies with very little influence. And even twice as much impact as very little is probably still very little impact.
