Obama at ND

I'll always be Irish. And, though I was raised Catholic, that part of me has ebbed over the years. Since those force me into being a fan of the Fightin' Irish, the whole Obama/Notre Dame thing, yeah, I paid attention to that, criticizing the pack of mutts who smacked him around for being anti-abortion. Well, today was the Sunday he spoke. Here's some of what he said:
"As citizens of a vibrant and varied democracy, how do we engage in vigorous debate?" he asked. "How does each of us remain firm in our principles, and fight for what we consider right, without demonizing those with just as strongly held convictions on the other side?"

Since neither knee-jerk krazy conservatives nor knee-jerk krazy liberals could ever answer that, the abortion brawl will remain a rabid cockfight till the end of time. How he was able to overcome both of their idiocies, I'll never know. But thank christ he did. At least someone in power is the voice of the sane.
