One disregards Professor Dr. Sowell's advice at one's peril.

Win the senate first. Let the scandals ripen until the undecided middle is disgusted. Then impeach & convict(!) for disregarding the law on several fronts. Purpose: to prevent future presidents from doing the same.
That chicken really got to the other side.

I shouldn't have picked on Harold. These comments are full of this trashtalk. It isn't a logical argument and the meanness detracts from the real arguments that must be made. It is true that the right has been blessed with some beautiful women, but all of us are one blink away from deformity, retardation, disaster - but for the grace of God. A car crash, a fire, a stroke, an illness, or just time. Would you really want any of the Right's beauties silenced just because they were no longer beautiful. I appreciate Michelle Malkin, or Katy Pavlich, or Salah Palin's ideas & voices. I assume when they are old and withered they will be even wiser and I'd want to hear them even more, were I still alive. Just because you disagree with women on the left, does not mean you need to be so small and mean-spirited. If the women on the left "spitefully use you", Jesus says "bless them".
Flagged as offensive. I detest attacks aimed at women's looks. Especially women. It is small and mean. It is not germane unless we're talking about beauty queens. I have no love for Ingram's politics, but that would be true if she looked like Miss America, Gollum, or Ronald Reagan.

2 books that support Stokes' essay: "How Should We Then Live?: The Rise and Decline of Western Thought" by Francis A. Schaeffer Traces the differences between American & French Revolution to consequences of the Protestant Reformation that swept northern Europe, & the Renaissance w/o the Reformation that swept Catholic Europe, respectively. He suggests that protestants saw man as completely fallen, deficient in intellect as well as will, compared to Catholics who saw the will as depraved, but reason pretty much intact. One view led to limited government with checks & balances, the other to grand state-run schemes. "A Conflict of Visions" by Thomas Sowell Makes a similar distinction, w/o tracing it so far back & w/o using Christian ideas like "fallen". He divides the modern camps into "Unconstrained" vs. "Constrained" worldviews. I.e., are we (or our educated elite) smart enough, wise enough, to create a wonderful new world; or should we rely on the wisdom of the ages? Sowell starts his analysis well after the French Revolution, but it is easy to apply his analysis backward in time. He never mentions if Schaeffer had any influence on his thinking, but I see parallels between the 2, and the present column.

For those unfamiliar with Lewis's "Screwtape Letters", it is satirical. The quote as the supposed views of a the demon, Screwtape. It is funny, & insightful of human nature. Non-christians will enjoy it, even though it is overtly Christian.
Sorry. I shouldn't say "gullible". That's not an actual English word. Try to look it up.
Just because there are other gullible fools doesn't mean we Townhall readers have to join their ranks.
Y'all realize that at Huffington Post, Salon, etal, they are laughing at those gullible right wing nuts who are too simple to understand the most blatant of satire & sarcasm, don't you?
