CYBERSPACE, PLANET EARTH - A few days ago I ran across an item posted on Googlevideo.com (a great video site, excellent quality and good choices, generally) about an Oklahoma representative (Sally Kern) who was recorded giving a pretty ignorant, pretty hateful speech condemning homosexuality.
I'm deliberately understating what she said.
It sounded a little like the rants you used to hear in the 1950s and 1960s: Godless Communists are trying to take over our nation. Watch out, Watch out!
Here's a direct link to the clip:
Sally Kern will now become much more careful about what she says in public. Ok, maybe not Sally - she will now hit the talk show circuit - but certainly her like-minded legislators will.
So the question is: Is it better to have her position known? Or better to have her keeping it hidden?
Perhaps that intellectual giant Bill O'Reilly can ask her directly.
