Alarming News

What the other side says

Snopes.com once debunked a story about an Australian dentist writing an article called ‘What is an American?’ The piece was one of those sappy ‘Americans are great’ pieces that sometimes work and sometimes don’t. In the debunking, the Snopes people wrote ‘As the reaction to pieces from a Canadian broadcaster and a Romanian journalist demonstrate, Americans take great delight in encomiums to America and Americans authored by citizens of other nations.’ It’s true. I definitely enjoy reading about how great we are in the foreign press. Partly because such pieces are rare and partly because it just sounds truer coming from a non-American.
Anyway, that line stuck in my head and I find myself feeling that same way when Democrats make pro-Bush arguments. I know I can be dismissed as a loony Republican but people like Peter who voted for Clinton and Nader and people like Doug, who worked for Clinton, as well as many of my blogless friends, can make the arguments sound truer. Check out Doug’s post from Tuesday about why he’s not voting Democrat in ‘04 (but he’s still holding out hope for ‘08). It’s a great read.

The ‘blogless’ that sounds so sad. Every American should have the right to have a blog. I’m going to start a protest.

I was never a Democrat. Well, once when a beaurocratic error made me one after I requested no party affiliation, but that wasn’t my fault. If anything, I would’ve been a Green.
