Don’t Get Out the Vote

January 24, 2013

If someone is too lazy, too apathetic and maybe just too stupid to vote without being coerced into voting, do we really want that person to vote?

Is someone has to be convinced to vote … if someone has to be driven to the polls … and, most important, if someone has to be told whom to vote for, do you really want that person casting a vote? 

“Extreme” Media Bias

January 8, 2012

A recent post argued that a Google search of the terms “right wing” and “left wing” proves liberal media bias, given that “right wing” appears with much greater frequency than “left wing.”

For some reason, though, I neglected to add the word “extreme” to my search.  You would think the terms “extreme right wing” and “extreme left wing” would never be used, as they are redundant.  Referring to someone as “right wing” or “left wing” implies extremism.
