I've been looking over conservative blogs for the past week, mostly to enjoy the shrill panic that is evidently gripping the GOP. I'm not one that's easily offended, but a regular post on some blogs I've seen is really pissing me off.
Featured as a top story all over the conservative blogosphere is a picture of Senator Obama holding a copy of Fareed Zakaria's book "The Post-American World", usually followed by things like:
Obama is anti-American, he hates our values, and he's a muslim because the author of the book happens to be one.
It's painfully clear that the collective right has not read a book in quite some time. After all, they've had the "Decider" on their side, getting advice about foreign affairs from "the Guy upstairs".
So instead of finally admitting that expanding their knowledge base is a good quality that should be shared by a presidential nominee, they dismiss the book and all it offers as anti-American propaganda, from a muslim's point of view.
The book actually speaks volumes about the current and future state of the world; yet it retains an optimistic view of America, and her future as a global partner in the stuggles of this new century. If you've not read it, pick it up.
And the next time you see this picture on a blog, refer the author to fareedzakaria.com, and then to YouTube to watch Rep. Bachmann's view of America.
