Air the freakin' show...

The Sinclair group that wants their 62 stations to air the film that comments on Carrie's anti war activities is drawing the predictable semi-hysterical sputtering protests from Carrie's fans.

I don't care that Fah...9/11 was a theater release that folks had to pay to see as opposed to a network presentation. It has gotten more press and generated more 'buzz' than it deserves. It's not even the only propaganda out there against the sitting president.

"Stolen Honor: Wounds that never heal" is being presented as a documentary & likely is no worse in its presentation than some of the crap that passes for documentary today. (If I have to read that fah...9/11 is a documentary one more time I will punch mikeymore in the mouth myself.) Yes, the subject matter is likely quite incendiary. It is only an issue, however, because Carrie made it an issue. He & his fans told everyone that his service makes him a better choice to lead our nation.

Many people disagree, and those that disagree have the right to explain why.

A documentary showing Carrie's own actions and featuring his own words seems to me to be a perfectly reasonable vehicle for doing so.

So many people have so much invested in propping Carrie up as the only alternative to George Bush, that they are simply unprepared to hear otherwise, no matter how much sense it makes. I think the mental health profession needs to gear up. There are going to be some serious issues out there.

Should, God forbid, George not be reelected I am sure that we will be fine. We will protect ourselves & our children- not as lunatic survivalists, but as reasonable, intelligent realists. We will grit our teeth, take a deep breath, and start looking toward the future, while keeping a level eye on the present.

Maybe we'll be OK, especially if Congress doesn't change hands, but since the President sets the foreign policy agenda, I shudder to think how much ground we'll lose in the WoT with a President who won't take it seriously...

Well, once Mark Dayton enters inpatient care I will work as hard as necessary to see to it that MN sends two level headed conservatives (neo or otherwise) to the senate.
