Wow.

All those trite conservative talking points sound so fresh and new coming from a Canadian.

'Black people aren't discriminated against, because America has a black President.' etc

If anyone's wondering whether it's worth clicking that link, it isn't.

It's fun to regurgitate out of context talking points.

3) Only in America could they have had the two people most responsible for our tax code, Timothy Geithner, the head of the Treasury Department and Charles Rangel who once ran the Ways and Means Committee, BOTH turn out to be tax cheats who are in favor of higher taxes.
Most responsible?

Did Geithner and Rangel write the tax code?

No.

What is "most responsible" supposed to mean?

I clicked on a couple random links in his blog. He's just a passive aggressive bigot (mostly insinuates things) who posts poorly written prose. Here is another gem.

I wonder how long this thread will last before it's sent to the wasteland.

That said, the juxtaposition between his bile and the ambiance of the artsy header is interesting

I wonder if the OP is just trying to promote his own blog.

He's probably getting tired of looking at that one comment ... from his sister.
