  1. It was more of a defense rather than a rant, and I'm sorry that you see it as unfair. I'm really not sure how it could be unfair since I was responding to the tone and content of your post and comments in regards to how Southerners are anti-Semitic right wingers by nature. I'm just trying to point out that's not the case.

  2. Really? Then what is this comment?http://www.scripting.com/stories/2008/10/08/had…Not to mention the tone of every other commenter there.My aim with my comment is simply to remind you and your readers that not everyone in “the Bible Belt” is a gun-totin' racist/bigot/anti-semite. There are (*gasp*) progressives here fighting for Obama, justice and reconciliation.The type of derogatory attitude you and the other commenters presented about southerners, be they dimwit Republicans or Dems, does no good in helping to bridge the gaps in our society (and in our Democratic Party) that are ever widening. Let's put aside the gross-generalized stereotypes and realize that there are plenty of folks all over the map that share our views…hence, we're looking at a Blue NC this election.

            That didn’t happen Sam.

          3. We were talking about Belmont University in Nashville, not you or North Carolina or a whole region, or even all of Nashville for that matter. You over-reacted on a pretty big scale there Sam.
