i find it fairly irritating...

... that obama's spiritual leader (who i firmly believe spoke Truth: hillary doesn't know what it is like to have dark skin, "our" foreign policy history in regards to south africa, hisoshima, nagasaki and palestine was/ is simply abhorable and does play a role in why america is so hated, and rich white people do run america - don't everyone know this??? ) is STILL being attacked and the media spin that followed may very well have destroyed obama... BUT the words of mccain's spiritual leader isn't even a blip on the radar.

let's look at what mccain's guide in all things spiritual has to say about islam - emphasis mine:

I cannot tell you how important it is that we understand the true nature of Islam, that we see it for what it really is. In fact, I will tell you this: I do not believe our country can truly fulfill its divine purpose until we understand our historical conflict with Islam. I know that this statement sounds extreme, but I do not shrink from its implications. The fact is that America was founded, in part, with the intention of seeing this false religion destroyed, and I believe September 11, 2001, was a generational call to arms that we can no longer ignore.

but, wait! there's MORE!

even COLUMBUS was out to rid the world of islam!

and then there's this:

There are some, of course, who will say that the violence I cite is the exception and not the rule. I beg to differ. I will counter, respectfully, that what some call "extremists" are instead mainstream believers who are drawing from the well at the very heart of Islam.

yeah, that's all lovey dovey talk, isn't it? that parsley is a real sweetheart. and that line of thinking surely will do nothing but enrich the bridges we are currently building (i mean, bombing) in nations where islam is the religion. not to mention, there isn't a lick of truth to what he says.

want more

in other news, cynthia mckinney is the green party presidential candidate. guess who i'll be voting for if hillary gets the nomination?
