I'll take the hit, even if I'm puzzled as to what I said in my own reply was construed as either a pun or sarcasm.
We weren't talking about your post, Karen. We were talking about Grinch's.
Ron, I'll be the first to acknowledge that I serve up sarcasm as quickly as anyone else, but I saw none in his post. Nor did I see it in if this is true the terms American Security, and American Intelligence need to be seriously reassessed, how can you trust the idiots responsible for protecting your country if they canít even run a simple background check of two potential Presidents?
It boggles the mind.
I saw it, Mike. Clear as a bell. Or do you really think our government is incapable of running background checks?
See, that's the trouble with sarcasm, though. Grinch's and yours and, yea, mine too most of the time. It usually feels a lot more clever than it really it is and is far too easily misconstrued. It's just so much more fun than saying what we really mean, though, isn't it?
I don't think it's frivilous, Ron, when doubts arose, probably in part due to his secretive nature, his childhood years spent in Indonesia, his father and step-father being non-U.S. citizens, and reports of comments supposedly made by his Kenyan family. And the solution to remove all doubt is so simple.
Of course it's frivolous, Denise. And it's not the result of secrecy, but of hate and fear.
Remember Florida in 2004? Now that was a real issue, one that potentially reflected the will of the American people. This time around we already know the will of the people. However, this issue, like that one, will be decided in the only place that counts -- the courts. That's the only place anyone is obligated to present their proof. And sadly it still won't "remove all doubt," because hate and fear are never so easily conquered.
The simple fact is that the press decided not to do any actual investigative reporting into these topics at all. That's the simple truth..
So you did all your own legwork, Mike, and dug everything up without their help? I'm impressed with your investigative reporting abilities!
(See what I mean about sarcasm? It would be much simpler, I suspect, to just point out that your continued harangues about the biased-against-you-and-everything-you-believe press make very little sense. If the press uniformly conspired to keep you in the dark, Mike, you'd never know it. I think your real complaint is that most of the press -- like most of America -- liked somebody that you didn't. That's irritating, I know, but it's bound to happen from time to time.)
