Meritorious Mention

Some may have noted Waterboy's thorough and patient schooling of Ken, the willfully obtuse yankee apologist commenting in an historical thread burdened by an unusual temporal confusion compounded by the conviction his meritless, irrelevant assertion would become plausible if often repeated and supported by a cascade of creatively redefined terms.

An except from a particularly remarkable exchange with Waterboy:

WaterBoy (
Ken: "What's this nonsense that a group of people occupying land within another country can suddenly declare themselves a separate legitimate sovereignty without the consent of the host country?"

Why, this 'nonsense' is from the venerable words of none other than Rep. Abraham Lincoln himself, circa 1848:

"Any people any where, being inclined and having the power, have the right to rise up and shake off the existing Government, and form a new one that suits them better. This is a most valuable, a sacred right a right which, we hope and believe, is to liberate the world. Nor is this right confined to cases in which the whole people of an existing Government may choose to exercise it. Any portion of such people that can, may revolutionize, and make their own of so much of the territory as they inhabit."

Well, I certainly disagree with the last portion of that sentiment.

In recognition of the sweet irony of having our very own resident yankee (geographical) ,Waterboy, give the beat down to a yankee apologist I have inserted in the panel to the right a link entitled "Waterboy's Bitch" to Ken's Obama Blog.
