Donald Duck reveals the lure of fascism...and Glenn Beck

This is deeply inspired and one can only hope the copyright lawyers at Disney just send a licensing agreement to Rebellious Pixels rather than a "cease and desist" letter...

August Bebel once said anti-Semitism is the socialism of fools. So is fascism...and so is some of the rhetoric that spills out of the Tea Party movement.

On a related note, just what does it take for someone to admit he or she is a racist anymore? The African-American anchor at C-Span deserves a medal for not reacting to the pitiful, benighted elderly woman who called in on the Washington Journal show this morning. C-Span anchors are not supposed to comment and are hired to be as emotionless as possible. This fellow, Robb Harleston, followed that rule to the letter today.

Holy smokes: Four of your favorite movies (I don't watch "films") are my top four: A Thousand Clowns, It's A Wonderful Life, Annie Hall, Harold & Maude (my order).

And, I worked for Izzy Stone what seems like a hundred years ago...mostly stapling.

You have an interesting venue and I'm sure I'll continue to follow it.

Take care and keep up the fine work.
