What would the Moderate have said? We will wait till folks stop yelling and make an agreement about a mode of action by using a committee process. Read this comical post on the NewsReal Blog
Liberal: Well, that’s not a very popular message. I mean, turning the ship aside would require interrupting the shuffleboard tournament.
Tea Partier: The whole ship is going to be shuffling off to the bottom of the ocean if we don’t change course!
Liberal: You’re probably just saying that because the captain’s black.
Tea Partier: What? That’s crazy!
Liberal: That’s exactly what a racist would say in this situation.
Tea Partier: What does not wanting to hit an iceberg have to do with hating our captain because he’s black?
Liberal: For someone who doesn’t hate black people, you sure do talk about racism and the captain being black a lot….
Tea Partier: But, I was just defending myself from you….look, nevermind. Do you know what that iceberg will do to this ship? It will sink us to the bottom of the ocean! We’ve got to steer around it.
Liberal: Sink us? That’s so overblown. I mean, conceivably it could sink us, but it would probably just scratch the paint.
