Silly Season unreels

I have to keep reminding myself NOT to become embroiled in electoral nonsense that has almost nothing to do with MY life, but I do keep getting sucked in to caring about the events of the passing stream of the Grand Cloaca of the Media.

Can it be that BOTH Rush Limbaugh AND Barack Obama have it exactly right?

Rush: Palin = Babies, Guns and Jesus (quoted here and elsewhere)

Barack: “I think people’s families are off-limits, and people’s children are especially off-limits. This shouldn’t be part of our politics. It has no relevance to Gov. Palin’s performance as governor or her potential performance as a vice president.” (CNN had this one)

These two may be clearer in the context of Doc Searls’ post which cites Lakoff, and reminds me to listen yet again to Christopher Lydon’s conversation with Lakoff which ought to give your ears something to chew upon.
