Why Another Blog?

I've decided to set up another blog, (my other one is called Writer's Musings), because there are some topics just too weighty for that blog.

So here it is. In this space I'll explore more serious issues in more detail. I do not expect visitors to agree with me in all cases.
In this forum feel free to take off the gloves, grab a handful of mud and fight for what you believe in.

Simple rules, rather like cage-fighting in the blogosphere:
No direct name calling. No excessive profanity. No whining when smacked in the face with mud.
Sling inuendo. Feel free to ask leading questions even if in a snide tone.

A Familiar Liberal Theme

It seems I'm not the only one to recognize the propensity of certain parties to misquote and deliberately misrepresent something Senator McCain said.

Done the first time, it is a simple misquote. Done after their misquote has been pointed out to them, it is deliberate misrepresentation. Certain parties have this down to science. Perhaps they have the DNC talking points.

Boy, this must be almost as infuriating to you as it is for me to hear all the conservative blowhards spouting off about Al Gore claiming to have invented the Internet.

Wait, I'll call you in eight years. We'll compare notes then. :-)

Aw shucks, why wait eight years?

At any rate, yeah, same thing. Public figures say enough verifiable nonsense that there is no need to go making things up.

More to the point, some comments attributed to public figures are so outlandish that they should prompt one to verify them before waving them out there like a battle standard.

A single phrase or sentence taken out of context can completely alter the speaker's meaning.
