nice thread, for once. if you would post one fourth as much and make them like this you would become a respected poster, maybe, with some luck.
and yes, i think last year's raging dump burn was forgotten in the joy of trouncing ATL and capping the season with a playoff win. KB going down is huge, but it's one thing. last year it was half a dozen.
imo this is one of the most valuable things about a college education. i think too often people with persecution complexes and preconceived notions (like me at age 18, reading mike adams blogs and bringing a separate notebook to all my freshman year classes to write down every time the teachers mention communism or try to indoctrinate the skulls full of mush) will filter any kind of presentation of alternate points of view as brainwashing. people import confirmation biases into the classroom and assume that they're being indoctrinated as soon as their views are challenge. it's silly.
i've had two openly political professors. one was the history teacher i mentioned earlier (whose political 'rants' were relegated to complaining about mccarthyism and griping that no one he voted for got elected [it was 2004]) and a very conservative philosophy lecturer who would scream at students and call them neo-nazis when discussing the then-happening terri schiavo case. the latter of the two is still one of my favorite professors to date.
don't worry, i was too, at one point in time. like i remember freshman year raising my hand and confidently informing the libtard marxist revisionist american history teacher that the recent release of the venona cables actually exonerated joseph mccarthy while the entire class rolled its collective eyes and sighed. twelve years ago we would've been bffs
