Oprah Oops

So there was this:


How long until we have an Oprah Obama Oops? They can even recycle the last line of the article:

"I'm so tired of you being the whipping boy for this hoax, because he didn't just dupe you -- he duped a lot of people."

Ideological? Who Me?

Glenn Beck sums up the misleading usage of ideological and pragmatic that we hear so much about these days:


How about some honesty...let's both present our ideologies, figure out where we agree and disagree, and work out a decent solution, rather than just belittling the other side. So many opinions deemed "evil" or "hateful" by the other side are just logical extensions of a difference in assumptions earlier up the chain of argument. Maybe if we unraveled each others arguments to understand them, we'd be better off than just conveniently labeling others.
