    If you don't want the answer, don't ask the question.  A funny attitude for a journalist possibly, but probably consistent with the environment.

    The culture is defined by the born again Christian set of attitudes, which are not Biblical and are not about Jesus but are about maintaining conventional culture.

    I think it is hard for progressives generally to get this or really believe this, but born agains believe what they are told by people they respect.

    Why is the meme that Obama is a Muslim an article of faith (literally) for the hard core as a badge of faith?

    It is a proxy for Obama being Other.  He didn't grow up in the continental US, but in multicultural places like Hawaii.  That alone makes him Other.  Then there is this thing about being black...which cannot be admitted.  

    These people spend a lot of time fooling themselves and such attitudes, picked up sometimes by polling, show that.  

    THe South is still the South.

    hope that the idiots who have no constructive and creative solutions but only look to tear down will not win the day.
