  •  the biggest single reason, by far, we MIGHT not (0+ / 0-)

    go to war is b/c we have an African American w/a "democrat" label for president.  

    If McCain or Rmoney were pres both elected repubs and average-citizen-on-the-street repubs would've been cheerleading an invasion w/yellow 'support the troops' ribbons and other meaningless symbols of 'patriotism'.

    The Ron/Rand Paul "libertarian" wing of conservatives wouldn't be getting nearly as much traction if we didn't have an AA pres.

    We'd have invaded months ago while elected dems pushed for "Patriot II: More Orwell Than Orwell" to somehow show they weren't 'soft on terror'.

    my mom never breast fed me. she said she only liked me as a friend.
