Well, it does reflect that same double standard that makes it ok to joke about men (e.g. why is a cucumber better than a man ?).
But, it's pretty funny too, although maybe the author should be paying royalties to the (white) guy who wrote "Stuff White People Like".
If Craig really wants to pursue his cultural anthropology though, he should go see Gillian Welch or DriveBy Truckers.
Uh, Steven, sounds like you think you are a patriot. If you really were, you might understand the way our democracy is supposed to work. The President is the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces; they answer to him. Sounds like you would like us to be a little more like Pakistan, where the Army is a separate entity competing for power with the democratically-elected gov't. Put another way, there are brave Americans fighting all over the world to protect our Constitution; it seems like the least you can do is understand and respect what they are fighting to protect.
P.S. McGovern flew in a bomber during WWII.
I'm surprised Grayson didn't mention that this is more or less how Drive-By Truckers funded their breakout album Southern Rock Opera (before it was re-issued by the label that picked it up).
Noexpiration summd it up pretty well. I'd put it more succinctly as "silly boys, don't they know it's not cool to be able to understand the lyrics ?"
Sorry, you've got to scroll over the photo to see the captions, folks.
HOW predictable was it that there would have been a picture of two gay men and a picture of an old black man with a face full of "character" ? I am neither homophobe (e.g. I fully support repeal of DADT, long overdue) or racist (e.g. I supported and worked for President Obama), but really, Independent, try to step outside being a caricature of yourself, occasionally. And I agree with the commentators who reject the overt editorializing in the introduction (even though I pretty much agree with what was said).
Oh, and some captions would have been nice ... Seems to me that if a picture is worth taking and certainly if it's worth distributing for thousands to see, it's worth writing a sentence describing it.
For people heating with wood, paper bags can be re-used as fire starters !
