You can’t believe everything you read on the Internet. Obama has produced his birth certificate. There were announcements that ran in two contemporaneous Hawaiian newspapers at the time. The head of the Hawaiian medical records has announced, ‘I have seen the long form you all want.’ I don’t know why the long form is considered more credible than the short form. They’re both from the same office. The State Department accepts the short form or as we call it, the birth certificate.

(You’ll never guess who this is from)

Should I hide the person who said the quote until you click the link or is this format better? 

“I believe that Thomas Jefferson said, “”If it neither breaks my leg nor picks my pocket, what difference is it to me?”” – Glenn Beck, responding to a question by Bill O’Reilly if gay marriage hurts the country. He’s been criticized by the right harshly after that one. 

“I know some people reading this post are very hostile to the talk radio right, others are as hostile to the left, and still others are hostile toward me. What I want to insist is that this enterprise of talking to one another is nevertheless worthwhile — conducted the right way, something none of us has a monopoly on, it can be productive indeed. America is our shared neighborhood, one where broken windows cause everyone to behave a bit more badly to one another…” – Conor Friedersdorf on engaging with those you disagree with. 

A reader of mine has reminded me to not fall into the trap of only condemning one side of the debate or only seeing the good in my own “side.” Glenn Beck, who I more frequently than not disagree with, took a respectable position for respectable reasons, I shouldn’t hesitate to point that out.  Conor’s argument fits nicely with the mission of this blog to engage with those we disagree with to help us reach closer to the truth.

 To begin a possible recurring segment:

“No, I do not.” – Alan Greenspan answering David Gregory on if he agreed with some Republican leaders if tax cuts pay for themselves. 

“I’m pro-choice. I’m pro-gay rights. I’m pro-immigration, I’m pro-gun control. I believe in Darwin.” – Michael Bloomberg answering a question of why he can’t be elected president. 

Although I have mixed feelings on gun control.
