Can't get off it can you? Your droll disinterest is fake. Your President is fake. The blood and bombs and drowning people and stupid policy and cartoonish governence and dangerous executive power grab and
war profiteering and corruption and cronyism are very real though.

Oh for God's sake..we all get it..no really we do...

You apparently think there is nothing courageous about anything anyone does unless it necessarily results in their ending up in a body bag.

People who scream about police states may sound alarmist to you..Its unfortunate that for many people these days, anything that happened over 5 minutes back never happened. The world has seen many many vey fascist and scary police states-there are many in existence right now as well. Those weren't/aren't figments of the collective liberal imagination.
Many of us think prevention is better than cure..if you see how many civil liberties and constitutional rules this admin has already overturned oh so quietly (check out the Democratic Underground archives for links), its not surprising that many people would rather be safe than sorry when it comes to free speech etc.

What Colbert did was courageous-yes maybe not quite like someone in Darfur speaking against the Sudanese govt., but there is more than one brand or one strain of courage and he had it..

Get over it ;) !

Ra (you double-poster, you),

You will hardly be taken seriously by pointing to DU.

But that just proves that I'm part of whatever conspiracy you have cooked up. Quick! Under the bed!

Get over yourself.
