This is off-topic but since this is the US politics thread I thought it was somewhat relevant. While currently the focus is on 'social' issues, the claim that rhetoric is at an all-time low doesn't quite stand up in historical context.

The post-Revolutionary War debt argument led by George Hamilton in the late 1780s was unpopular among southern states, and nearly caused Virginia to secede from the union. Unfair taxes was the big issue, and Senator George Mason of Virginia declared that Hamilton had,

done us more injury than Great Britain & all her fleets and armies."

Really brings to mind the economic terrorism/economic slavery rhetoric of the past few years.

Oh, that quote's from p. 51 of "The Federalist Era 1789-1801" by John C. Miller.

rhetoric is always at an all time low what you have now is a realignment of the parties along ideological lines and an increased willingness to use procedural tactics to gum up the legislative process

Ugh Lol. I watched The Roast of David Hasslehoff last night, got George on my mind.

Mitt Romney is the one non-handicapped guy competing in the Special Olympics, and he’s just barely winning.

Santorum and his never ending lulz

“[Karen] worked as a nurse, but after we got married, she decided to walk away, yet didn’t quit working. She was a mother, and also wrote two books,” Santorum said, in what also seemed to be an appeal to female voters.

He spent most of his speech repeating the themes he does on the stump, including his mention of the Declaration of Independence, but this evening there was a twist on that, too.

“The men and women who signed that declaration wrote the final phrase, ‘We pledge to each other our lives, our fortune, and our sacred honor,” Santorum said.

There were no women who signed the Declaration of Independence.

One thing that happens when you are a presidential candidate is that words become increasingly meaningless and all that you retain is the correct manner of their delivery. This is probably a simple case of flatlined brain waves cooupled with an open mouth. What matters more is when he says what he means and it makes your jaw drop..

here's a more recent book of Schaeffer's that I really need to read, assuming it doesn't depress me too much:

I was pumping gas last night and a guy at an adjacent pump asked me "so who ya voting for? newt?" I was kind of dumbstruck as to why anyone would ask a complete stranger who they're voting for in the GOP primaries.

Kid Rock, the Megadeth guy, Mitt's visceral appeal to the rock world deepens. (Contra Josh Marshall, my guess is that the net harm/good fallout from the controversial Nugent endorsement will be minimal.) Still pending: Wishbone Ash.
