Still Taking Rhetoric Too Seriously

April 11, 2008

This lament by Kara is a bit unfair in my judgement.  Sure it would be nice to have more direct appeals to patriotism in a context other than jingoism, but the appeal is still there.  I don’t want to suggest that rank-and-file union members in Pennsylvania don’t take what’s happening in Colombia seriously, but the idea that their only being appealed to because of somewhat stilted internationalist rhetoric, which Kara is probably reading too much into anyway, takes these woefully misunderstood voters for granted.
