". . . But the past does not exist independently from the present. Indeed, the past is only past because there is a present, just as I can point to something over there only because I am here. But nothing is inherently over there or here. In that sense, the past has no content. The past -- or more accurately, pastness -- is a position. Thus, in no way can we identify the past as past." p. 15

". . . But we may want to keep in mind that deeds and words are not as distinguishable as often we presume. History does not belong only to its narrators, professional or amateur. While some of us debate what history is or was, others take it into their own hands." p. 153

No Press Questions Or Meetings To Be Allowed

With sp, according to the rnc.


Ooooh, big girl with big gun is afraid of the press.

That's red meat for the press, and you know what happens when the press smells blood.

Sp's so convenient with that great big family -- she's a got a family member to appeal to every special interest: special needs child, son AND nephew going to Iraq (they won't be going into combat if their mom and aunt makes it to D.C. though), adolescent daughter who 'got into trouble,' a sister who started a new biz (which evidently sp had a 25% share in and they went bust or something -- maybe it was a different biz, a car wash that wasn't the gas station sp stated?), husband in the erl biz and total sportsman, they all have guns and shoot them. They just don't have anybody that fits into the LBGT slot. Dang. But the young 'uns have time yet ....

Is that a fair remark? Considering how they've put that family front and center as THE REASON SP IS QUALIFIED FOR THE OVAL OFFICE, why yes, it is fair to itemize how appealing they are to the voters.

Will the American voters not understand what it means that a person who is running a VPOTUS, someone a heartbeat from the presidency of this nation, cannot be asked any questions while campaigning to be that person? Will they not understand that not only is this not democracy this isn't even an election? Will they not realize that this is the divine right of kings, and even stalinism and naziism? Will this not turn around and bite the 'cain campaign in the ass?

Will sp not become the most hated person in the nation, making the hatred of Hillary Clinton look small in comparison?
