Euro-Muslim Tensions On The Rise
Tony Blankley seems to think there is some friction between Islamic and European culture. Many from Europe will call him an idiot, but that's not so unusual. They call anyone who doesn't agree with their views idiots, bigots, right-wingnutted Americans, and nothing short of retarded cowboys.

Comparing McCain To Bush
The LA Times is doing the only thing that Dems can possibly do right now, and that is tying McCain to Bush's policies.

Colorado Rep. Castigated For Remarks On Immigration
Rep. Douglas Bruce was ordered to leave the podium of the Colorado House of Representatives on Monday after calling Mexican workers "illiterate peasants."

Let's examine this a little. This is from Merriam-Webster:
1: having little or no education; especially : unable to read or write
2 a: showing or marked by a lack of familiarity with language and literature b: violating approved patterns of speaking or writing
3: showing or marked by a lack of acquaintance with the fundamentals of a particular field of knowledge
1: a member of a European class of persons tilling the soil as small landowners or as laborers; also : a member of a similar class elsewhere
2: a usually uneducated person of low social status
Illiterate peasants come in all colors and nationalities. Elitists have no trouble characterizing a good portion of rural America as such. So, where did this man err?
