    First BIG mistake... her misunderstanding of what a "scientific theory" is. It is NOT a general "theory" as like a guess, a theory in science is essentially a fact unless further evidence proves on the contrary... which has never been done in terms of the "theory of evolution".

    2nd BIG mistake... having absolutely no clue about the amendments of the Constitution. In particular, she shows that she doesn't know The Bill of Rights.

    "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

    You can clearly hear the law students groaning and laughing at her. :)

    She's running for the Senate? I believe that she's one of those "learn while on the job" kind of people... knowledge before hand isn't important!

    She is something else... that's for certain! I loved it when she asked "where in the constitution is the separation of church and state"...

    Her chances of winning may not be based on her intelligence and skill at debating. Lets not forget that Minnesota once elected Jessie "the Body" Ventura to be Governor... and of course California regularly elects actors into high political office.

    She is the Tea Party, along with all the other fruitcakes running under the Tea Party banner.
    There's an interesting article in the Wash Post examining how white racist organizations are "infiltrating" the Tea Party.

    NAACP backs report that ties racist groups to tea party



    By Krissah Thompson
    Washington Post Staff Writer
    Wednesday, October 20, 2010; 10:30 PM


    A new report, backed by the NAACP, has found what it says are efforts by white nationalist groups and militias to link themselves to the tea party movement.
    This Story



    The report, called Tea Party Nationalism, uses news articles, visits to white nationalist Web sites and observance of tea party functions to claim that tea party events have become a forum for extremists "hoping to push these (white) protesters toward a more self-conscious and ideological white supremacy."
    Its findings cite that members of groups such as the Council of Conservative Citizens, which opposes all efforts to "mix the races of mankind," have become involved in tea party chapters, and that posters on the online white nationalist Web site Stormfront.org have written of "inflitrating" tea party events.
    The report was issued by the Kansas City, Mo.-based Institute for Research and Education on Human Rights, which is funded, in part, by the liberal Firedoll Foundation. The paper was authored by Devin Burghart and Leonard Zeskind, both of whom have written widely about white nationalism.

    I always thought Hollyweird had a field day mocking Margaret and Sir Denis Thatcher... One example that comes to mind was the scene at the end of the James Bond movie, For Your Eyes Only, where Margaret talked to a parrot (thinking it was Bond) and slapped Denis's hand as he reached for a cookie.

    there are also interesting reports that prove democrats will simply put on a Tea-party t-shirt, and go to the rallies and shout racist rhetoric hoping that it will look like the Tea-party is racist.

     
  9. How does that in any way refute the NAACP report? Look at what you quoted. Levin's group aims to parody, not sign up tea partiers for Stormfront's mailing list.

    There's nothing of substance in the NAACP 'report' to refute. It's simply dredging back up the baseless NAACP resolution that was passed back in July in time for the upcoming midterms. Trying to create an association between a candidate or in this case Tea Party leadership (whoever that would be) to extremists by calling on them to repudiate the positions of those extremists that they have no real connection to is one of the oldest political tricks in the book. If you read the 'report' that's what it basically boils down to.

    Lets not get off track!

    Christine O'Donnell should not be running for Senate just as Palin shouldn't have been running for Vice President. Why is it that well known female Republicans are shown to be "stupid"?

    And why are Republican african americans 'shown' to be Uncle Toms or otherwise traitors to their race? And how would this relate to Democrats desire to continue to paint the GOP as the party of the old white guy?

    Any number of legit surveys has shown the GOP has been trending older, whiter and more southern since it began to recruit the old Dixiecrats in the middle 1960's. The old-line southern white democratic racists simply switched parties starting then and accelering with the Nixon southern strategy and beyond.

    How many black delegates were there to the 2008 GOP convention...veryveryvery few.

    My point is that there is a special kind of vitriol coming from the left where minority or female conservatives are concerned. Now I don't think Palin is the sharpest knife in the drawer and if she were to get the Republican nomination I think it would be a disaster for the GOP but when the left goes out of their way to accuse Palin of being stupid even when she is correct it speaks to an agenda.

    Im going to cross swords with you on this topic because she's absolutely correct. There is no separation of C & S in our constitution. Thats a literal point that is subject to interpretation. In fact, its the interpretation of liberal judges that have brought in those words. She isnt stupid, its a matter of what you want to think / beleive. But the media is just dead wrong on making fun of her on the issue. There simply is no separation. You cannot separate me from my belief system any more than you can pull the sunlight out of daytime. The internt of the constitution was to NOT have a state inspired religion. The measures we have gone to in this country in the stretching of the initial intent has been spread so thin we cant even see the original words. We are about 2-shakes from being RULED by the Judicial Branch in this country.

    The media is responsible for labeling people as stupid or smart. Have you heard some of the complete rubbish that comes from Pelosi? Barbara Boxer? Its all a matter of focus. The media doesn't report news, they drive down our throats what THEY want us to think. And we fall for it.

    Take for instance the importance WE put on what Hollywood icons think. If Brad Pitt stated tomorrow that only red cars save on fuel, the media would report is as gospel. Why? He's an ACTOR! He knows as much about the world as my kids do. Just because he makes movies doesn't make him smarter than you or I.

    BUT I DIGRESS..............back on topic chaz!

    Perhaps she has no business running, perhaps she does. We have a sitting president, however, with 180 days under his belt in the Senate, and no other leadership experience.

    I agree to disagree with you, but there is another viewpoint to be shared.

    finally. someone that gets it. well kinda...

    people are smart or stupid, that's a given. it isn't so much the fact that the media labels them, it's the fact of how the media portrays them.

    the predominantly liberal media isn't going to "bite the hand that feeds them". and stupid sells better than smart. to wrap it up: it's all about the Benjamins.

    I must say that it wasn't the media laughing and groaning at her in the video... they were law students. If you take the Constitution as extremely literal, there is no separation of church and state. In today's world though and not in her fairytale world... there is a separation of church and state as interpreted by the Supreme Court from the Establishment Clause together with the Free Exercise Clause. If she wants to live in her world where there is no separation of church and state... well, that's great for her. Perhaps a future court will reverse the decision made back in the 1940s and 50s and say that there is no such thing. I would assume that can only happen with strict constitutionalists where if it's not explicitly stated in the Constitution, it doesn't exist. In public education, there should be education of creationism (intelligent design)? That's a specific viewpoint from a group of religions that alienates other religions, thus giving preference.

    Law Students - Again, they aren't scholars, in fact, they might as well be art students, they are learning.....and have been pre-programmed with no ideas of their own. (See my comment on Hollywood)
    Interpretation by Supreme Court - Go back and read my clip on this country being a few inches short of being RULED by the Judiciary.
    Creationism - Thats religion? (The second law of thermodynamics is that things tend to disorder....... thats not religion, thats science! We didnt fall out of a tree somewhere. We didn't evolve randomly into what we are. It doesn't work like that. If you ever get a chance to see Kent Hovind, I'd highly recommend it.

    Separation of church and state was designed to keep the state out of the church not the church out of the state.
