I am torn. On one hand, I want to boo Ray Lewis for defeating my beloved New England Patriots. But then again, I give love to those who beat up my heroes and take destiny in their hands. I like San Francisco. But, they too beat the Patriots...just barely.
What is a brother to do?
Either way, I am going to watch the commercials, drink Sapporo, and eat some Ramen noodles with New York Strip and green scallions--one of my favorites.
Here, we were talking about good old William F. Buckley and how the National Review has taken to slumming in the Age of Obama. A few folks kindly reminded me that Buckley was a racist. Yes, he did kick out the Birchers from his private club. Nevertheless, he was one of the Right's intellectual forefathers of "polite racism." Let us not forget that fact.
Again, I am of two minds. Perhaps, Virgos are just indecisive by nature? The Tea Party GOP reactionary white populists in the Age of Obama are pathetic in their open appeals to herrenvolk racism and ugly white populism to keep the black usurper out of the White House.
By comparison, William F. Buckley had some class to his racism, what was an effortless bigotry that could be argued with, and about, over a nice glass of Chianti. You tell me, who is more dangerous to the Common Good? The Tea Party or William F. Buckley?
