One nation, under desks ...

Posted By on Sat, Sep 6, 2008 at 11:30 AM

I know. I'm obsessed on the subject, but still fascinated about how such a rhetoric expert as Mike Huckabee could fall so in love with such a nonsensical story that he would trot it out again, at length, for the Republican National Convention. Now comes, again, James Fallows of The Atlantic to dig deeper into the mystifying Mike Huckabee desk parable. He finds -- though it's still a head-scratcher on any surface evaluation -- that there is a theological explanation. It's an evangelical  dog whistle. This link includes a link to our earlier, fuller coverage.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
