It is refreshing reading this thread-as someone said, the politics and things in general in the US are weird and getting weirder, a conservative like Obama is attacked by the right-wing loons, the anti-gay stuff, anti-government nuts, etc. I'm Canadian and reading this thread makes me homesick.
There are a lot of good, educated, intelligent people here in the US but also a lot who drink the Karl Rove Kool Aid. As someone said, look at the topics in the Politics section. Ignorant, racist, homophobic, like they were posted by 12 year olds. Weird is the word.
