Floyd R. Turbo, American. And Strib source.

Posted by: Jambo / 12:57 PM

A quote from an article in today's Strib shows just how big a rhetorical hole liberals have allowed themselves to be thrown into:

At Southwest High School in Minneapolis, teachers and students can't understand the charges that IB is both anti-American and unacademic. "I voted for Bush in 2000, and I have a poster of Ronald Reagan in my closet," said Greg Denysenko, history teacher in the school's IB program. "To say that this program is anti-American is absurd."
How do you prove you're a true American? You say you vote for Republicans and the reporter takes it as a given and figures that makes for a powerful statement from authority. "Well if a Reagan supporter thinks it's American that's good enough for me." This sort of crap makes me crazy. Would any truly liberal paper (or even just a fair one) have used a quote like that? Liberal media my ass.

(For those of you who don't remember Mr. Turbo his editorial rebuttals usually started with "My name is Floyd R. Turbo, American. Recently this commie pinko station said...")


That quotes says a lot about the paper and the teacher.

Please observe John Mc Cain's speach delivery, am I mistaken, or this a unforegivable mimic of Floyd R. Turbo? How low can politics go?
