  •  Nope. (2.00)
    No snark.  Bring on the zeroes.  

    I believe racism is alive and well in America, the Southern Strategy, now morphed into the "Christian" Strategy (I put "Christian" in quotes so as not to insult real Christians, whom I respect) continues to succeed, and that Roberts's nomination was very much calculated to appeal to this rich vein of our populace.

    Sorry, that's what I believe.

    •  Okay then (none)
      What you believe is patently raciest.

      That Senators voting for Roberts are doing so because he's white --oh excuse me "Aryan" (an offensive and inaccurate term by the way)? That's the same sort of logic Republicans tried to use to paint Democrats as raciest for opposing Rice and that crazy judge. But just as it did with them, it reveals far more about the prejudices of the person applying the logic then it does to those to who it's applied against. It's projection of the first order, the action of someone who refuses to see the world in anything other then racial terms.

      You're statement was raciest, and if you honestly believe it then so are you.

      Anyone who voted against the patriot act is too good for the Senate

      •  Granted (none)
        And I'm sexist and orientationist as well.  Straight white males are my least favorite people on Earth.

        And I am one, which makes me self-loathing as well.

        But hey, what can I do?  I thought Rove's choice of Roberts was based on the guy's eye and hair color and family the moment I saw their picture, and I thought it was a brilliant choice at that very same moment.  (And Roberts will be confirmed, as we both know.)

        Please don't take anything I say as a personal insult.  I'm trying to insult an entire nation here...
