This is a new 5 minute video, Republicans and military men on John McCain, by film student Aaron Hodgins Davis with a soundtrack “Lux Aeterna” by Clint Mansell. It offers some opinions of McCain from his own party and military “comrades”, and it captures what a dangerous warmonger he really is.

Stanley Fish, professor of law at Florida International University, in Miami, has another excellent Think Again column with the title All You Need Is Hate in the New York Times Opinion section today. Here’s his opening paragraph:

I have been thinking about writing this column for some time, but I have hesitated because of a fear that it would advance the agenda that is its target. That is the agenda of Hillary Clinton-hating.

He then references an article by Jason Horowitz in the January issue of GQ, The Hillary Haters, which finds that the hostile characterizations of Clinton do not add up to a coherent account of her hatefulness:

She is vilified for being a feminist and for not being one, for being an extreme leftist and for being a “warmongering hawk,” for being godless and for being “frighteningly fundamentalist,” for being the victim of her husband’s peccadilloes and for enabling them.

As he points out, this is not to say that there are no rational, well-considered reasons for opposing Clinton’s candidacy. But these attacks by the hardcore crazies are just beyond the pale. And yet, a lot of this gets into the mainstream media (MSM). Check out the article. It gave me pause about the state of our culture and what’s tolerated.

This is a shot of the corner of our driveway (to the right) as of last Friday. As you can see, the road has been widened with those heaping piles of snow, thanks to the Town of Denmark. Today these piles are five or six inches higher due to the new snow we got last night and this morning. I ran the snow thrower over our driveway once again this morning and managed to get out OK with our Subaru Forrester.

So, this is the big Super Tuesday. It finally came. Twenty-four states will be voting but Maine won’t have its Democratic caucus until this Sunday, the 10th. It looks like Hillary and Barack are neck and neck at this point. I favor Barack but will support Hillary if she gets the nomination. John McCain I think is insane in that he’s totally succumbed to warmongering, not that he ever was anything but a warmonger. Whoever becomes President, Hillary or Barack, had better start cutting back on our over-bloated Pentagon and Defense Establishment.
