"The central doctrine of Christianity, then, is not that God is a bastard. It is, in the words of the late Dominican theologian Herbert McCabe, that if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you."--Terry Eagleton

"It is impossible for me to say in my book one word about all that music has meant in my life. How then can I hope to be understood?--Ludwig Wittgenstein

"...had a great fall...."

Sarah Palin speaks and, frankly, if this did make sense to me, it would worry me:

"With his pen and his phone, he's abrogating his presidential authority. Making himself a ruler not a President.”

Doesn't abrogating mean he's not using his Presidential authority?

“This president’s forgotten man is we the people, and we the people know that our best days are still ahead because we know that God shed his grace. He’s given us our freedom to do what’s right. God doesn’t drive parked cars. I think he expects us to get up and take action in order to defend these freedoms that are God given. I think it’s an affront to God to let this go on because he gave us these freedoms. We’re not going to let someone, a person, a party take them from us. We’re not going to dethrone God and substitute him with someone who wants to play God.”

I'm still puzzling over how anybody drives parked cars.....

Sarah Palin continues to have access to public forums, though she rarely makes sense. She energizes the far-right fringe, so she will not soon go away.

How many people listening have a clue about the meaning of "abrogate"? It's doesn't matter. It's a big word and it sounds good when used against Obama, so it works for Sarah and her listeners.

From a post by origuy at Juanita Jeans. I think the “driving parked cars” is one of those phrases that means something to the religious right. It means something like in order to let God control your life, you have to be doing something. God can’t take the wheel if your foot is on the brake.think this is about right,

I suspect she mean to say "arrogating" in order to...sound intelligent.
