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.

How about we propose a resolution to condemn the Senate, instead?

I'm with pinko. The senate deserves our scorn, Republicans and Democrats alike.

Another day of shame for the Democratic members of Congress. What a bunch of disgraceful scumbags.

I just signed MoveOn's statement that We The People (remember them?) won't back down, and we won't shut up.

I understand that Congress is very busy figuring out how to continue to kill our young men and women along with countless Iraqis (repubs), or allowing them to be killed (dems), for fun and profit. How fortunate that they still have the time to condemn a NEWSPAPER AD! One paid for by citizens of this increasingly fascist country.

The only point in condemning people is if they have human emotions and can feel shame.

Coulter, O'Reilly and Hannity are all conservobots created in a secret laboratory sponsored by Richard Mellon Scaife, so writing a resolution to condemn them would be like condemning your toaster.

In this age of Orwellian double speak when people like George "Slam Dunk" Tenet and former Iraqi Proconsul Paul "disband the Iraqi army" Bremer earn Medals of Freedom, isn't being condemned by the Senate a badge of honor? Therefore, as we continue to wage war to preserve peace, and fight them there so we don't have to fight them here, I propose that the Senate pass articles of commendation for the Coulters, O'Reilly's etc. and award them shiny new American flag lapel pins for their vital role in making this country what it is today.

(Rock on, MoveOn!)
