Another racist comment..."snail suckers"? Oh about as classy and intelligent as "freedom fries"...they seem to be good enough to die in the Republican/bush/Rove war in Iraq.


You just have a nasty bigoted racist term or saying for every group in the world...maybe you should put them all in a bookForMoronsandKKK.

Lets use accurate terms. The French are not a race. They are a nationality. The pejorative term you're looking for is Xenophobe in criticizing the poster. Or Nationalist but not Racist.

Now if you want an example of a Racist, that would be Rev Wright and the crazy priest. And by extension, some would argue Obama, too.

Obama would never be considered a Xenophobe or a Nationalist, whereas he is the opposite and I don't know if there is an antonym for Xenophobe. Given his predilection for bashing America all over the world it would probably just be described as Anti-American.

If you watch Frank Luntz's research of Independents in Michigan, he had them dial their reactions into a computer to each line by line in commercials by all candidates.

The SINGLE MOST 100% POPULAR LINE BY ANY CANDIDATE was when Palin says "I grew up in one of those small towns, they grow our foods, they fight our wars, they work in our factories and they ALWAYS LOVE AMERICA....". [I remember idiot media people writing pieces saying this was not a true picture of America...dopes]

America does not give a rat's butt about France. And btw "extreme right wing" doesn't mean anything. McCain has been criticized forever for being not Conservative enough and Palin has no record of being an extreme right wing of anything, just an Conservative. But since you don't know what Conservative means you're not aware. She's actually bordering on Libertarian with having the citizens vote for bonds to fund local improvements.

Looks to me like someone is trying to invent a new media category called "extreme right wing" to combat the extreme Liberal voting record of the Candidate being the most liberal in the whole place.

It turned out the French were right not to support our invasion of Iraq. It is not unpatriotic to listen to feedback from others, especially those that disagree with our views.
