    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Kucinich doesn't stand a chance because he's become commedians' punching bag. Obama is a frontrunner. Tha name Tancredo just doesn't ring a bell with me.

    I'm definitely going to have to read up on Alan Keyes.

    That says far more about Americans than it does about the candidate.

    No doubt about it. Zeal is definately not a socially acceptable trait here in the US any more, at least not for anything deep or meaningful.
