The Reaction in Review (Oct. 12, 2008)

A Week-end's Reactions that deserve a second look:

Sunday
- Wish Michael a "Happy Canadian Thanksgiving."

By Libby Spencer: "We're all mad here" -- Libby gathers a few excellent thoughts that match her own (and mine) about the "through the looking glass" quality of life in recent weeks.

By Capt. Fogg: "They prosecute liars, don't they?" -- Fogg takes on the e-mails "stinking up" his inbox: "What do you do if you get one of these?. . . Don't just delete it with a sigh - forward it back and tell the senders they are participating in a crime, aiding an illegal takeover of the United States by deceit. . . "


Saturday

By Michael J.W. Stickings: "Quote of the Day: John Lewis on the negativity of McCain-Palin" -- Michael concludes, "What McCain and Palin are doing -- creating and feeding off an "atmosphere of hate" -- reminds Lewis of what George Wallace did in '68."

By Michael J.W. Stickings: "Another round of boos: Palin drops the puck in Philadelphia" -- Michael thoughtfully examined what can happen when a plain ole' hockey game was shamelessly politicized by Palin's campaign (3 comments). Also, Carl weighs in here.

By Creature: "There is only one John McCain" -- Creature takes on Ana Marie Cox: "Please stop telling me there is an 'old' John McCain and a 'new' John McCain."
