I'd say it's at least worth killing an Australian for

I'd kill an Australian AND break the jaw of a regular person for it.

I'd cut the funding to grizzly bear preservation programmes for Bruce Springteen's music, but not kill for it.

The best part of the big Post article about this was the constant Conrad Burns love.

quick, someone say something divisive!!@!!

I don't know about you but I would not want a black man in charge of my country,

I am currently posting from Schnecksville Pennsylvania (that's in the alabama part), and I can tell you that this sentiment is not exactly something that people around here are ashamed of announcing.  It is also home to quite a large population of KKK members which might make it easier for people to announce these things in public.

that being said! The efforts in other parts of my great state to re-register independents that want to vote in the democratic party so that they can do so has been going pretty well, according to the people I know that are involved in it. Frankly, I'm not sure areas like mine will end up mattering all that much in the clinton/obama contest simply because there aren't many registered democrats around these parts.

The GOP. Talk radio. Fox news. White trash republicans. That "GOD DAMN AMERICA" soundbyte isn't gonna go away just because he poured on the charm.

That being said, I pretty much agree with everything I've heard Wright saying in those clips. Sucks that Obama has to throw him under the bus.

I haven't yet read a transcript of the speech, but in a perfect world I imagine it going, "George W. Bush has done far more to disgrace the United States of America than the words of Reverend Wright ever will." Oo.

Wow, that was a good speech.

Quote
. We can tackle race only as spectacle as we did in the OJ trial or in the wake of tragedy, as we did in the aftermath of Katrina - or as fodder for the nightly news. We can play Reverend Wright's sermons on every channel, every day and talk about them from now until the election, and make the only question in this campaign whether or not the American people think that I somehow believe or sympathize with his most offensive words. We can pounce on some gaffe by a Hillary supporter as evidence that she's playing the race card, or we can speculate on whether white men will all flock to John McCain in the general election regardless of his policies.

We can do that.

But if we do, I can tell you that in the next election, we'll be talking about some other distraction. And then another one. And then another one. And nothing will change.

That is one option. Or, at this moment, in this election, we can come together and say, "Not this time." This time we want to talk about the crumbling schools that are stealing the future of black children and white children and Asian children and Hispanic children and Native American children. This time we want to reject the cynicism that tells us that these kids can't learn; that those kids who don't look like us are somebody else's problem. The children of America are not those kids, they are our kids, and we will not let them fall behind in a 21st century economy. Not this time.

This time we want to talk about how the lines in the Emergency Room are filled with whites and blacks and Hispanics who do not have health care; who don't have the power on their own to overcome the special interests in Washington, but who can take them on if we do it together.

This time we want to talk about the shuttered mills that once provided a decent life for men and women of every race, and the homes for sale that once belonged to Americans from every religion, every region, every walk of life. This time we want to talk about the fact that the real problem is not that someone who doesn't look like you might take your job; it's that the corporation you work for will ship it overseas for nothing more than a profit.

This time we want to talk about the men and women of every color and creed who serve together, and fight together, and bleed together under the same proud flag. We want to talk about how to bring them home from a war that never should've been authorized and never should've been waged, and we want to talk about how we'll show our patriotism by caring for them, and their families, and giving them the benefits they have earned.
