Egualamente, mi amigo.
Thank you, ronko. Happy Holidays to you.
Typically I disagree w/CW13's comments. Yet his first 6 sentences are on point. Mandela was one of the worlds great heroes and Danehy's comments today, much like the talking heads and politicians he aptly criticizes bring more attention to himself and his poor writing on the topic. Mandela's life speaks for itself and deserves to be celebrated, not pontificated. Mandela deserved better from this paper. Thanks a lot, Danehy for putting me in the position of me agreeing at least in part with my usual idealistic foe. CW13 who I tend to disagree with often speaks with good sense and respect even though I usually disagree. I do not dislike Rush and his conservative ilk for expressing their conservative ideals, it's the delivery that is annoying, arrogant and aggressive. In this column Danehy's delivery is dangerously close to those he despises.
I ask you to start by re-reading Pulitzer Tommy's opening paragraph. Decorum? Choose their words carefully? Blowhard. Super blowhard. Blind squirrel. Tea party crazies. Me thinks Tommy needs to practice what he preaches. I honestly thought that it being the Holiday season that both sides would pull back and chill for a few weeks. Guess I was wrong. There he is Mr. civil liberal, Lord of the Losers himself, Pulitzer Tommy throwing jabs, snide remarks and his usual dose of hateful, factless remarks. Talk about a phoney. I'd bet my bike that he'll be front and center at midnight mass on Christmas Eve, making sure that everyone sees him. I'd rather be homeless than be him. Well, I was going to be a good boy for a few weeks,but if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. As far as vice president Cheney goes, I'd rather be Dick than dickless.
P.S. Signed up yet, Tommy?
I'm sad to know that my child will only know of Mandela in a historical sense like George Washington or Abraham Lincoln. Apartheid was as close to slavery as could be legislated in the 20th century. For Republicans in this era to not understand this shows how far they have come from the party of Lincoln. Lincoln killed hundreds of thousands of Americans and if the south would have one would have been called a terrorists.
