Rusty's comments

And also, she was no longer a White House reporter. She was a columnist.
I didn't say she does. I said she doesn't need one.
Diversionary tactic? - hell yes. Are we discussing Israel's attack on a civilian vessel? Nope. We're talking about Helen Thomas expressing her opinion. Cuz you know what she said is so much more heinous than what they did.
I'm not giving her a break because I don't think she needs one. She expressed her opinion. I'm just sorry she apologized for it. Her comment is clearly being taken out of context: Nesenoff: So you're saying the Jews go back to Poland and Germany? Thomas: And America and everywhere else. Why push...
You have every right to express your opinion and Helen Thomas had every right to express her opinion on the Israeli occupation. She just forgot that free speech is suspended when criticizing Israel.
I agree and I find the anti-Thomas outrage to be outrageous. And yes, it's smells like an attempt to divert attention away from the flotilla story. I'm not condoning what she said, but it's oo bad the Obama White House couldn't find the courage to express as much disgust with the Israeli actions as...

io9.com has my favorite piece on Betty White being the last one standing. Totally unexpected tribute; now I need to find the tshirt: http://io9.com/5555167/the-force-is-strong-with-betty-white
Ron Santo, former 3rd baseman for the Chicago Cubs, has been my hero since I was a kid. He "came out" as an athlete with diabetes in 1971 and has made a huge difference in the lives of kids with diabetes—He's helped raise over $50,000,000 for juvenile diabetes and shown kids that they don't have to...
If our group shows half as much cleavage as that group, I will count my summer well-spent.
No, you did not. "A Klingon and a Jedi"‽ I've got a bad feeling about that.
Hypothetically speaking — if the anonymous question was referencing the juxtaposition of the anti-Kagan gay bashing media frezny with that of another ReThuglican preacher (George Rekers) getting caught playing bury the pickle would one be a weirdo person or merely ironical?
Say it loud; say it proud.
Ha, I love the turn this thread has taken. Remember your run-in with the Klingons last summer at ComicCon?
hey
I'm glad Julia busted you on this one. Saves me the trouble of pointing out that you grokked the reference. And also, I'm a geek not a nerd.
Yes, what Robin said. And it's no secret that scientists look at what the popular media comes up with and tries to make it possible. Uhura did have the first blue tooth, for example. The youngest grandson watched an episode of STNG and wanted to know how iPads and Big Blackberries were "SciFi"....
Saying that the policy is being changed because of justice in no way guarantees that it won't be changed again in the future at the "whim of expediency, political gain or bigotry." I haven't even seen your definition of justice. We could spend several days debating that. Some could argue in a...
Mystics, you are right on all counts. What you're missing—Obama's not doing it the way Dan Choi wants him to.
There's no way to prove this one way or the other but I would argue that it took so long for the military to accept integration because it was put forth as a moral argument. There are solid reasons why segregation in the services was bad for our national defense and integration should have been...
So it's at the end of a laundry list in a proclamation. If the reasons to repeal DADT are to attain equal justice or to be fair then that's not good enough. And maybe that's why it's harder to get rid of the ban than it should be. Progressives are making arguments that they find persuasive. And if...
