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.
How dumb is Al Sharpton? From an old interview with Peter Jennings when Sharpton was running for president, at Attack Machine (you have to scroll down on his blog until he gets some dang permalinks):

SHARPTON: Oh, in the Federal Reserve Board, I would be looking for someone that would set standards in this country, in terms of our banking, our — in how government regulates the Federal Reserve as we see it under Greenspan, that we would not be protecting the big businesses; we would not be protecting banking interests in a way that would not, in my judgment, lead toward mass employment, mass development and mass production.
Image: Gratuitous photo of TV chef Rachel Ray, on loan from a piece on Manatee steak atRight Wing News.The photo on loan, that is. Not Rachel, although I heard she is getting divorced.
Frankly, it is a salacious shot. I like it. A side of Rachel I did not (not that I ever thought that way...) think possible. But a good photog can work wonders. Though her hands do seem 'workmen' like. Which is OK in my book. Concur with Sheryl re Jane 'the traitorous b****', they do share a pictorial similarity. Sharpton a non-entity in my mind. None of them worth more than a pixel or two.
We gets dumber and dumber. According to a Gallup Poll I blogged about two years back, only a third of our fellow citizens then believed that "Darwin's theory of evolution is 'just one of many theories and has not been supported by the evidence'":
