I put Middle Earth Journal in hiatus in May of 2008 and moved to Newshoggers.
I temporarily reopened Middle Earth Journal when Newshoggers shut it's doors but I was invited to Participate at The Moderate Voice so Middle Earth Journal is once again in hiatus.

On the Radio: Are we racists? Sexists? How about just partisans?

Today on Mid Stream Radio, at 1:00 pm Eastern, 10:00 am Pacific, Ron and I will be joined by Shaun Mullen of Kiko's House and Michael Stickings of The Reaction (both are also columnists at The Moderate Voice) for a review of the week's top stories in politics. One of the key items we'll be talking about is a recent CNN poll asking how many Americans are ready for a Black president? How about a female president? The answers may be surprising to anyone.

The question is not are "YOU" ready for this or that. They asked if the COUNTRY was ready. While many people said yes to either choice, a surprising number of people said no. Are they racists? Sexists? Or could it be that Hillary supporters were saying the country is not ready for a black president and Obama supporters were saying we're not ready for a woman? We'll delve into those questions on the show today.
