Farrakhan on the Left, Falwell on the Right

BOY OH BOY, the radio talk show hosts sure had a field day last week when Hillary Clinton decided to attend a rally led by Louis Farrakhan. They ranted ranted and raved about the blatant attempt by Hillary to reach out to her liberal base -- even if it means associating with the 'extreme left.' Granted, it was nothing if not pandering on Hillary's part, but I'm more interested to see what these same hosts say about John McCain's visit to Liberty University next week to meet with the Farrakhan of the right wing -- Jerry Falwell.

That's not my analogy by the way -- it comes from the Senator from Arizona himself in a quote from a CNN interview in 2000:
Neither party should be defined by pandering to the outer reaches of American politics and the agents of intolerance, whether they be Louis Farrakhan or Al Sharpton on the left, or Pat Robertson or Jerry Falwell on the right.

Pander away Hillary. Pander away McCain.

Louis Farrakhan isn't on the left, he's out there hovering above us all in the Mothership, or whatever they call the spaceship he and his followers believe is involved in the workings of the universe. (Such a leader transcends left or right classification, so to speak).

Keep up the good work on your blog.
