On a more serious note, here’s a site with some great videos of the 1963 March on Washington. You might learn a little. And if you’re Glenn Beck, you might learn a lot. You might want to spend tomorrow watching these videos so you don’t have to waste time with Glenn Beck’s rally. And I’m sending that advice out to Glenn Beck too.
Bruce Majors, the Tea Party blogger who warned people coming for Glenn Beck’s rally that 80 percent of Washington DC is dangerous is speaking out. I assume he’s doing it from a safe location. Majors claims his directions weren’t racist. Really? The only way the could have been more racist is if they warned visitors about cannibals and headhunters. Major’s guide to DC is like a 2010 guide to the city for people who are living in 1955. I guess his warning that most waitresses and cab drivers “are immigrants, frequently from east Africa or Arab countries” was just an advisory for visitors who don’t speak Somali or Swahili.
Finally, Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol Palin seems poised to appear on the next season of Dancing with the Stars. I don’t know. Do we really want someone taking part in a dance contest who named their child “Tripp”? Not a good omen.
