  1. Prof is so right!

    BlueWave would have been much better served by having, say, Sean Hannity lecture on “How Punching Your Child In The Mouth Builds Character”…

  2. Or the US congressman who advocated recently euthanizing ebola victims when found. He is pro-life by the way.

  3. oops. Not a congressman, just a GOP tea partier from SC known for pro-life advocacy. I wouldn’t want to disparage him unfairly.

  4. It’s worth recalling that one of the groups of candidates for our last council election was criticized for involving students in their campaign. Even if we do somehow accept that children learning about and getting involve in politics is a bad thing, some of those same critics – associated with Blue Wave – then saw no problem with a different campaign having kids from outside of Montclair passing out campaign literature.

    More, at least one Blue Wave member in town apparently lied for a newspaper article printed the day before the election, implying – but carefully avoiding an explicit statement – that some of the candidates for the town council were tea party members. It’s possible that this was a quote taken out of context, but I did ask him whether or not it was and he carefully didn’t answer.

    The unfortunate reality is that Democracy really isn’t on either side’s agenda. But I do agree: it is absolutely at risk. Politicians hope we have a short memory. Part of our job is trying to learn from that past both sides want us to forget.


  5. “Not a congressman”

    I recall an article pointing out some of the outlandish statements made by GOP candidates for House elections in “safe” districts (which they were therefore likely to win). I expect, with a little searching, you’d find a future-congressperson expressing that type of ugly sentiment.
