project 21: rall almost as bad as limbaugh
on the one hand, it makes me happy that an african-american group is finally defending rice against the attitude that just because she's a republican, she's not really "black".   especially when the attack is coming from ted rall, who i'm fairly certain is also not really "black". 
on the other, it sortof bugs me that the article is almost more about the limbaugh/mcnabb screwup than what a race-baiting tool rall is.  it's even in the subtitle.  " ...hold cartoonist to the same standard to which it holds rush limbaugh".  (note that that line is laughable in and of itself)  then, there's a full paragraph about limbaugh.  what relevance does it have to anything in the story?  none, really, just wanted to remind you.  you know, in case you forgot about it.  kindof like kerry with his vietnam service, you know, we just don't want you to forget.

howdy, thanks for stopping by. what you're looking at is the intermittent ramblings of an iraqi vet, college student, goth-poseur, comic book reading, cheesy horror loving, punk listening, right-leaning, tech-obsessed, poorly typing, proudly self-proclaimed geek. occasionally, probably due to these odd combinations, i like to think i have some interesting things to say; this is where they wind up.

"I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us...We need the books that affect us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside of us.
