Poe was great as a macabre writer just as Plath was. As the madness over took them the intensity of their writing grew.
This is true but the central issue with using bad or simply wrong quotes to promote an idea is very commonplace today and doesn't seem to show signs of abating.

For example, Dennis Rodman can dribble and so his brothers and the black community at large immediately think he's a great diplomat and an ambassador between cultures. A fading sports celebrity, a cross-dressing shower-buttie is going to be allowed to befriend a murderous enemy of humanity and make light of it. Jesse thinks its great.

WRONG. The guy is a loose canon waiting to fire.

Some people, men and women, are great comedians. Large audiences are drawn to them. Suddenly, they view themselves as sociopolitical gurus for the masses. In turn, those unthinking masses believe that good comedians are sociopolitical gurus and make great politicians.

A talent for humor automatically qualifies someone to become Mahatma Gandhi and Karl Marx?

Hollywood actors deal in fiction as a matter of career choice but then when they try applying that same sort of fiction into the sociopolitical realm, clueless fans immediately equate Favorite Actor with Salvation Of Mankind. Heck, they did it in the last 10 of their hit movies!

I am not saying that America should be stratified into a caste system where everyone needs to remain inside of their class restrictions. Hell, even a great gigolo like me could rise to any national occasion or level of prominence.

The point is that the mistake being made by the voters is equating popularity with competence. It's an old story, for sure, but particularly severe at this moment in history.

There is great similarity between the antics of Fire-And-Brimstone preachers and Marxist Wackos like Castro, Lenin, Stalin, Khrushchev or the bizarre, manic body languages of Hitler and Mussolini.

Religious fervor is not just for the religious.

Yer right. Some of these Topix Progressives are like Satanic Cheerleaders, Carnival Barkers for a Dark Circus but surely they exhibit the exuberance of a good, foot-stompin, hand-clappin', Roll-In-The-Sawdast Oklahoma Brother Love's Travelin' Salvation Show!

The "talent in humor" is being used to qualify the comedians into the cool kids club with Jon Stewart as case in point. And the reason fine humor with just the right touch of humanity and humility is lost. A lot of humor any more sounds like high school taunts.

I suppose maybe it is true that all the electronics has created a nation of alienated people longing for acceptance and at minimum recognition so they think they too can be cool just like Stewart or maybe even Obama by being the cheerleaders standing alone on the side lines.

To deal with the onslaught of rising costs, businesses will have no other choice but to fire or lay off workers or cut health insurance benefits for everyone in the company and continue to reduce full-time employees to part-time. Some will simply go out of business.
And your evidence for this is what Carol? A crystal ball? Tea leaves? Bird entrails?
No you're just having a right wing wet dream.
