Ruminations by a non-academic general surgeon from the heart of the rust belt.
I agree. What's dispiriting is the extent to which it's obvious that what people took from the speech depends on their preconceptions. Some of the comments on right-wing sites are so distant from what he said, that one realizes that real discourse is all but impossible. On any charged political subject.
The sad thing, too, is that no one really has heard or read the speech because it's not reducible to sound byte form; you can't just show a snippet for 30 seconds during the "national" segment of the evening newscast. It's too complicated and profound. So it gets casually dismissed and instead the talking head spend all day yacking about the erevernd wright....
I thought comparing his grandmother to a man who believes the US had 9/11 coming and that whites invented AIDS was most inspiring.You've become too silly to bother with anymore.
svt..... that's an amazing bit of cut and paste analysis. Sadly, there are many in America who take your particular stance. Silly, indeed.
