Big Media and the liberals have lost control of the message. What's different now is that there are alternatives to the so-called "mainstream" media, such as the Internet, in general, and bloggers, in particular. And that's the way it's going to be, from here on out. Get used to it, liberals! 
How Gay Activism Shapes U.S. Politics

Response to Movie "Expelled" Proves Its Point: Man Has Not Evolved 
The reality of those who deny the existence of God is that they want to foist that limited view on the rest of the world, and have been successful in several cultures throughout history in perpetuating that very myopic opinion.
PC liberalism: There is only one credible side to an issue, and any dissent is not only rejected, it is scorned.

It's either liberal values, teacher values, the typical antics of a public school, or a school policy gone haywire, as a high school student in Texas gets suspended for taking a cell phone call from his dad, who's serving with the United States Army in Iraq: 
"Professor" Obama spends a mere six days in Pennsylvania and concludes that its small-town folk are "bitter". The Democratic Harrisburg mayor responded, "The remarks of Sen. Obama lack judgment, lack understanding and frankly the comments are condescending and they're hurtful. I think Sen.

Hillary Clinton is apparently having more trouble telling the truth.
