I have resisted posting about this, but

After being bombarded with opinions on this guy from a number of you on your own pages, I just wanted to point something out, that I hadn't noticed until I shared this rant with my Darling Husband. When Jay of Wisconsin says (Ed. note: he has now changed his name to Johnathan Swift, BTW):
"Cause we fu**ing founded this country, assholes. Those Founding Fathers you keep going on and on about? All that bullshit about what you think they meant by the Second Amendment giving you the right to keep your assault weapons in the glove compartment because you didn't bother to read the first half of the fu**ing sentence? Who do you think those wig-wearing lacy-shirt sporting revolutionaries were? They were fu**ing blue-staters, dickhead. Boston? Philadelphia? New York? Hello? Think there might be a reason all the fu**ing monuments are up here in our backyard?"

Hello chicken-lollipop!!! Where the fuck do you think WASHINGTON and JEFFERSON were from? VA is a red state in case you hadn't noticed, and I suspect this country might be around without EITHER of them.

And I'm not sure what he considers to be Wisconsin's back yard, either...

Update: Neal Pollack's response to J.S. Pretty sage advice, I'd say. (h/t:
H.W.N.N.L.)

I followed a link from some blog and scanned the page. I often swaer like a drunken sailor, but I tend to put the profanity aside when I make a serious point. I could not take this guy seriously, so I didn't digest the whole thing. I got the idea. Yes, losing sucks but people need to seriously get over it. All the people who disagree with Bush (I sometimes fall into this category), but I will worry about his present and future actions, NOT the past. The election is now the past.

Please I hope it doesn't take another attack for Americans to realize that we have much more like each other than we are like any other country.

And Madison as well, of course, the actual principal drafter of the US Constitution.

That's right. I forgot about him. Not to mention his wife Dolley who supposedly saved some of the national treasures that fill the monuments that J.S. posted about....

Moreover, the idea that those of the Founding Fathers who were from what are now "blue states" would share their modern "blue state ideology" or whatever is, of course, laughably absurd. Thinking of John Adams, for example, even to this day the old WASP "Brahmin" families in Massachusetts are largely Republican, just mostly no longer involved in politics (Bill Weld was the obvious exception).

Hell, Alexander Hamilton started the NEW YORK POST...not exactly Democratic Party's favorite paper!
