Quote of the Day

I collected [PARD petition] signatures as well. What was interesting to me was the secretive/private stance signatorees sometimes took. I think it spoke to the larger dynamic of the local politics--local conservatives feeling more confident and less awkward about their positions and "liberals" feeling less inclined to be public with her/his views. In general, I think the process reflected a greater dynamic: it is difficult to have leaning-to-the-left politics or beliefs in this community and one is quickly alienated when ascribing to such.

Oh goody. The victim card. Three years of intimidation, personal attacks and abuse of the legal system, on the eve of their final appeal, they try to portray themselves as the victim of a rightwing conspiracy. ROFL. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson would applaud.
