Today's Daily Quiz: September 20, 2007
Today, the senate voted on a resolution to condemn MoveOn which passed with Democratic support. Should the senate next propose a resolution to condemn FOX News for their continual lies and slander of Democrats and for providing known haters Ann Coulter, Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity with a forum to debase and threaten opponents of their extreme ideology?
Previous DQ: If Thomas Paine were alive today, would he be ignored, heeded, or tasered?
Answer (Once again, thanks to Mike Rappaport): There would be no need to taser Mr. Paine, largely because no one would be listening. Since Paine was a gentleman of the 18th century, he would never scream, shout, expose himself or any of the other methods 21st century people use to draw attention to themselves. As soon as he began talking, the quality of his rhetoric would confuse listeners and they would wander away. The only way Paine would be able to get anyone's attention would be to taser himself.
