    since that's not the accurate depiction of what he said, no. what he stated was that he would have to be very satisfied that they would apply US law over shariah law - which I have no problem with. No US Judge or Governmental Appointee has the right to impose their religious preferences over US Law.

    No, the exact quote is that he was asked if he would appoint a muslim, and he said this: "No, I will not"

    Bigoted and racist no matter how you look at it.

    He's feeding Republican xenophobia. Why would they care? He's preaching to the choir really. This is a group that says Muslims should be singled out for scanning at airports. This is a group who supports racial profiling. A black guy willing to support a xenophobic agenda is a dream come true for most Post-Nixon conservatives.

    He wants people who totally committed to the constitution. He doesn't have the time to watch somebody who isn't declared to the Constitution and laws of this country. Essentially, if he can't read your thoughts and you're a Muslim, you're not getting hired by him.

    and then he was asked if he would appoint a Muslim that would place US Law over Shariah Law and he said he would.

    context matters - though I agree it's problematic and will probably hurt him in the campaign. He doesn't seem to realize yet the extent to which the media will highlight issues that they use to attack republicans and cover up similar statements by Democrats. I don't see this as any worse than Obama's claim that his grandmother - like a "typical white person" - feared blacks.

    I appreciate you taking the time to write all that out.

    See - here's the thing. I don't do TV. I barely do computer. I go to news.google.com and read when I feel like it. People do something like oh, I don't know; writing their notes on their hand? That's the kind of thing I hear about. So all I know is the really stupid stuff she actually truly did.

    sorry if it seemed like i was ranting. but the temptation on the part of many to look down on social conservatives as somehow inherently "stupid" is one of my pet peeves

    but see... that's also the kind of thing I'm talking about. The current President can't give a 10-minute speech without a teleprompter, and Palin gives a 45-minute address with five words written on her palm.... but somehow everyone in the media instantly jumps on her for being the idiot. and then the next speech they send their best cameramen to weird angles to see what she wrote this time.... and instead she writes "Hi Mom!", just to have fun with them I'll admit, I don't like her fighting the media, but I think that was a witty response to a particularly stupid piece of media idiocy in it's fight with Palin.

    but you got ------------->l l<---------------- this much exposure to the story, so that's what you carry with you. Palin is dumb because she writes on her hand.

    i mean heck, I write stuff on my hand - you don't get the "really stupid" vibe from me, I hope.

    The whole perpetual motion thing is just sad. I reach out to you, we strike up a friendship. You talk about Palin, I point out the hand thing. You say you do the same, and before I can call bull****, you shoot the President again with the teleprompter shot. I go back to Azeroth.

    Re: Herman Cain for president?

    the point is there for comparison - all politicians utilize teleprompters. however, Obama does not get blasted as "stupid" for using one by the general media - Palin instead get's blasted as stupid because she didn't need one instead. Pick any politician about whom the media has fawned over as "intelligent" (as they did over the President) and the model still fits.

    and I do write stuff on my hands. When I was in school that's how I kept track of my homework. Now, it's how I keep track of projects when I move from one location to the other - or leave note for myself to remind myself of tasks I want to get done during the day.

    for example, two or so days ago i read a Prickly City comic and enjoyed the bit quite alot because it reminded me of some posters here. So i wrote "prickly city" on my left palm as a reminder that when I got back to my computer after work, I could look up the cartoon on line and post it to the Political Cartoons thread.

    here it is: The Ryan Budget Discussed.

    what, you think I am lying to you to protect someone that I hope doesn't run for any office ever again? how would that work?
