Comment: Of course we don't know how influential Mr. Davis was in Mr. Obama's life. Nor do we know how influential his pastor of 20 years, Reverend Jeremiah Wright, was in Mr. Obama's life. We do know Mr. Obama was exposed to a lot of negative influence.

Comment: This is a remarkably stupid thing to say. It is obvious to the world, but I guess not to Mr. Dawking, that a pig is a pig and a human is a human. Not too complicated a concept for 99.999 percent of the population. Dawkins was awarded a Doctor of Science by the University of Oxford in 1989. He holds honorary doctorates in science from the University of Huddersfield, the University of Westminster, Durham University, the University of Hull, the University of Antwerp, and the University of Oslo, and honorary doctorates from the University of Aberdeen, Open University, the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, and the University of Valencia. He also holds honorary doctorates of letters from the University of St Andrews and the Australian National University, and was elected Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature in 1997 and the Royal Society in 2001. He is one of the patrons of the Oxford University Scientific Society. Maybe there are more dumb people than I thought.

Comment: DNC press secretary Stacie Paxton said Dean "misspoke and corrected himself immediately." However, in 2005, Dean called the Republican Party a "white Christian party," and apparently no one rushed to "correct the record" about that comment.

Comment: Hate from the Left continues to parade about. Vile, vicious, life-threatening hate. I don't remember any influential, in-the-news people on the right making death threats to Mr. Obama. Could it be liberals are not as caring as they advertise they are? Could it be conservatives are far more caring than how they are portrayed? By the Left?

Comment: We certainly wouldn't want any illegal aliens feeling like they were illegal aliens. We can't have that, can we. It's amazing: de Blasio doesn't seem to realize that illegal aliens aren't citizens! What a sad state of affairs.

Jessica DelBalzo

Quote
"I love abortion. I don't [just] accept it. I don't view it as a necessary evil. I embrace it . . . [T]here is no need to suggest that abortion be rare. To say so implies a value judgment, promoting the idea that abortion is somehow distasteful or immoral and should be avoided."

Comment: We talk about people being either "pro-life" or "pro-choice." We ought to talk about them as being "pro-life," or "pro-death." Such enthusiasm for first, second, and third trimester abortion, might just spill over to fourth trimester abortion. Do you suppose Ms. DelBalzo would "embrace" that as well? (Sadly she would not be alone.)

Comment: This may be one of the best examples of the kind "non-partisan" correspondent presently at the helm of mainstream media organizations. When you read a newspaper or magazine or watch ABC/CBS/NBC/CNN/MS-NBC, bear in mind that much of the "unbiased" "reporting" is coming from fierce partisans like Mr. John Dickerson.
