The poor kid.

To France with her, and not a day too soon!

But pray, leave the lad for his country. He is of us, and we of him.

And we shall never desert him, though he wander, lost, by the foul and evil heart of his shrewish mother.

She sickens me, her and others like her. So much for the 'reality-based community'.

It is sad that this attitude is so common. It has been people like this who have the effrontery to tell me that if I do not like the way they are changing America that I should just move. Personally, I would rather they pack up and move to one of the countries currently following their espoused beliefs. My ancestors left Europe for some very good resons. Why are these types of people trying to turn this country into a mirror image of the Old Country??

hmmm. Ya know in that piece on culture I mentioned that a woman who works for the VPC wouldn't fit in in Appalachia. If I'd have just waited a few weeks to post it this would have been a perfect example.

Really it's a culture thing. Hers is alien to the one she lived in briefly - & I ain't talking about paris.

& I admit I'd be even moreso out of place if I moved into her neighborhood - mainly cause I wouldn't be silent where they were cause of the "fear of retribution".

But to think - they had to teach some things to their kid at home because the school wasn't doing its proper job of left leaning collectivist indoctrination! The horror!

I just wonder what her reaction would have been if the shcool still had a rifle team? :P

Not that I would wish ill on the innocent, but when the next bomb goes off in NYC, I wonder if she and her friends will still have small children to indoctrinate?

Maybe, if she's real lucky, she and her family will be "slumming" at their weekend house in the sticks when it happens.

You should find Ms. Burleigh's email address and send her your responses.

Nice job!

Excellent fisking. I have nothing constructive to add. You captured it perfectly.

Great Fisking! I would only hope she reads it and ABSORBS it, but alas, probably can't get through the rock she calls a brain.

Wow, we have our liberals in Seattle, and as far as I can tell, they're a whole different breed than those on the East Coast.

In simple language, I told my son that our president had started a war with a country called Iraq. I said that we were bombing cities and destroying buildings. And I explained that families just like ours now had no money or food because their parents didn't have offices to go to anymore or bosses to pay them. "America did this?" my son asked, incredulous. "Yes, America," I answered. He paused, a long silent pause, then burst out: "But Mommy, I love America! I want to hug America!"

Funny how she didn't explain Saddam to her son. And the torture, and the rape, and the murder. Must have skipped her mind.

jsid-1145463957-358808  Kevin Baker at Wed, 19 Apr 2006 16:25:57 +0000

She didn't have to explain Saddam to her son. Saddam was no danger to us, and besides, he was a secular dictator, um, tyrant, um, leader. The fact that he was slaughtering and starving his own people was no business of ours!

Besides, everybody knows Saddam didn't have any WMD. It was all trumped-up by Chimpy McHitlerburton so he could send the redneck slavering childish patriots in the military to kill thousands of little brown people for Ooooiiiiillllll!!!!

Thanks for this. Great job!

The first line of that article alone was enough to boil my blood. Her type will be the first ones to demand the protection of the establishments they despise so much when the big bad people in the world are perceptibly threatening her way of life.

Anyway, that poor kid. What a childhood. Ben and I had secular, socialist parents when we were little. In fact, they moved us up to Canada, because B.C. had the only socialist government in North America in the early 70s. Even still, we were raised in a totally apolitical atmosphere, and didn't even know our parents had been socialists until we were adults. (By then the realities of socialism had converted both of them to conservatism.) A lot of credit goes to our folks for creating a childhood for each of us that was as innocent and uncomplicated as is humanly possible. The only concerns in our lives had been eating all our vegetables, learning fractions -- and the occasional encounter with a grouchy bear in the backyard, which, in retrospect, was far more pleasant than an encounter with a self-righteous leftist.

Upon further reflection, it becomes clear what a terrible mother this woman is. She deliberately undermined her six-year-old son's sense of safety and well-being and trust by scaring him about his own country, instead of a distant, murdering tyrant, when she didn't have to do either. She could have just shut up and let him be six. But she wasn't content until she made him fearful of what she is fearful, a fear that does not reflect reality. She not only introduced the boogie-man, she told the kid he was under his bed.

Thanks to Tam for linking to this brilliantly-stated post. What a steaming pile of excreta that Burleigh woman has plopped out. I love that their bias is SO naked and unabashed that they don't even realize they should be more discreet- it makes it so much easier to sort the wheat from the chaff.

You know, as a kid I loved nothing more than reciting the Pledge of Alliegance and continually requesting we sing the Star Spangled Banner in my music class. And I grew up to be a liberal. So the kid probably would be fine.

I've been to Narrowsburg. Nice people and a nice little town. I hope they get back on their feet. God bless them.

Funny thought: most of the rest of NY state would think of Narrowsburg as being almost in NYC! Or worse, in Jersey!! I also love how NYC folks think of "upstate" as "anything past the west end of the George Washington Bridge". Their world is so small, cold, and insular.

Trackback message
Title: Sheehan on 9/11
Excerpt: So, in Sheehan's world Al Qaeda isn't to be held responsible for their planned, deliberate murder of nearly 3,000 people- it's all Bush's fault.

Words fail me. I shouldn't be surprised though- she does, afterall, call the people who killed ...

Kevin - I stand in awe of your fine fisking skills. Excellent writing, man - thanks!

jsid-1145678102-359203  Stephen at Sat, 22 Apr 2006 03:55:02 +0000

here is her email :nburleigh@literati.net

jsid-1145681172-359209  Kevin Baker at Sat, 22 Apr 2006 04:46:12 +0000

There's no point in sending it to her, Stephen. She's made that abundantly clear.

Hope she likes mushrooms...

Late to the party, but I want to add that France can afford "plentiful child care" because they have a low birthrate. There are so few children that even with the short work week there are enough child care (what, technicians?) to provide plentiful child care.

As to the Rifle Team comment, the Sierra Club rents the local Boy Scout summer camp for a weekend after the Scouts leave. It is "coed" to use a quaint old phrase, but Sierra Club, being Left of Chairman Mao will host archery but not riflery. When I mentioned to one girl that when I was there as a boy the Scouts used real .22 caliber rifles, she was amazed that the Scouts did not shoot one another. I told her that in those days the thought never entered our minds and we resolved disputes with fists. That may not have been the best answer, but I think the question reflects more on the caliber (sorry) of the boys this 30 something girl dates.
Ms Burleigh would, no doubt, be horrified that school children actually touch something so lethal.

And it's no good pointing out that cars are even more lethal. Mass transit will fix that.
