We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
In an effort to film some anti-Moslem prejudice in the US, NBC has been seeking Moslems to volunteer to attend NASCAR events while wired and secretly filmed. No doubt they planned to continue filming until they caught something "useful" on film. Like Candid Camera.
I guess it reveals something about what NBC thinks of NASCAR fans.
Nice try, NBC. But you are busted. They used to call this "yellow journalism," and it is beneath contempt.
And the real question is this: If 100 people were pleasant to these stooges, and one person was rude - what would be shown on the news?
Chalk up one more for the blogosphere vs. the biased and, in this case, insidious and corrupt MSM.
Two comments from The Chairman:
1. If they really wanted some good footage, they should have gotten five or six of the scariest-looking Moslems they could find and put them on a transatlantic flight as a group.
2. Why didn't Cynthia McKinney think of bringing a film crew with her when she punched the cop? And why isn't her story a bigger story than Cheney's? His was an accident - this was on purpose.
