Courting the Lizard-Brain Vote

Republican strategist Ed Rogers appeared on "Hardball" Tuesday night and said this:

DAVID SHUSTER: Ed, Barack Obama‘s going up to New Hampshire. He‘s somebody I mentioned Republicans should be careful of. He‘s a great speaker...

ROGERS: Please, help me, David. Somebody that underestimates Barack Hussein Obama. Please. I mean, this man is a blank canvas where people project their desires and their ideal candidate because nobody knows anything about him. And he has a deep voice...

Here's This Week's Discussion Question:

From this exchange, may we assume that you will be referring to all '08 presidential hopefuls by their full names?

(Here's a helpful list for you, Ed: Joseph Robinette Biden, Samuel Dale Brownback, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Rudolph William Louis Giuliani, John Sidney McCain, Willard Mitt Romney, Thomas James Vilsack, and the erstwhile candidacy of William Harrison Frist.)

We mean, you can't be singling out Sen. Obama simply because his middle name happens to be "Hussein," right?

Please keep the discussion civil and do not wander off into "Boy, every time you think these guys have gone as low as they can go, they dig another level" or "He forgot to mention that he was a member of the 'Democrat' party."


Update: How could we have forgotten Newton Leroy Gingrich?

Up, Up, and Away

Yeah, we know it's probably already happened, but the story about a boycott of US Airways as a result of six Muslim imams being removed from a flight prompts This Week's Discussion Question:

Which cable news idiot will be the first to suggest that fewer Muslims flying would be a great idea?

Please keep the discussion civil and remember that Glenn Beck and Bill O'Reilly are even money on this one.

Gimme a head with hair...

Here's the Congresswoman-elect from my district on a post-election news program.

As a Minnesota State Senator, she was the driving force behind several unsuccessful attempts to get an anti-gay marriage constitutional amendment on the ballot, bringing us to This Week's Discussion Question:

Is Michele's coiffure the work of :

a) a hairdresser who is definitely NOT gay,


b) a gay hairdresser exacting a delicious bit of revenge?

Please keep the discussion civil and do not wander off into "Doesn't she own a mirror?" or shouting out requests for "Love Shack" or "Rock Lobster."
