The shadow knows…

The shadows knows nothing save himself.

[Sarah Palin] is the reverse of Barack Obama, in essence his shadow, deriding his idealism and turning negativity into a cause for pride. In psychological terms the shadow is that part of the psyche that hides out of sight, countering our aspirations, virtue, and vision with qualities we are ashamed to face: anger, fear, revenge, violence, selfishness, and suspicion of “the other.”

I’d put this in the “must read” category for today. Jonny’s assigned reading. Take it or leave it. But, be warned, if you do not engage, you will fail this course.

Or, am I talking about Civil Procedure….

Obama’s call for higher ideals in politics can’t be seen in a vacuum. The shadow is real; it was bound to respond. Not just conservatives possess a shadow — we all do. So what comes next is a contest between the two forces of progress and inertia. Will the shadow win again, or has its furtive appeal become exhausted?

About big jonny

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. when are they going to come out with super hero costumes to make it official that they’re fighting for Merica? Little black face masks n shit.

  2. Wow, Jonny, didn’t know you were tuned in to Deepak.

    Damn, that ’bout sums up my need to vomit when i see her.

    get back to civ pro. and crim 1. ah, i don’t miss those days. bitchin.

  3. Screw Deepak. Palin is eeevil, and Barack is trying, but not hard enough. He needs to get those knucles good ‘n bloody. Beat those lying assholes good and sure.

  4. …beyond her hypocritical politics, when that chick starts reading from the teleprompter, it gets obvious fast, just how fucking clueless & ill prepared she is for all this…

    …deer, ah, ‘scuse…moose in the headlights syndrome…& while ya can put lipstick on a moose that doesn’t mean it’s gonna have a clue how to deal w/ shit when those lights get turned up real bright…

    …i hope to hell that the rove, mccain brain-trust’s disingenuous little “lets appeal to what we saw the other side stir up interest in” vote gets seen through…

    …whether you like hillary or not, she’s a ‘dyed in the wool’ lifer politician…

    …palin is a manipulated “shiny penny” w/ nothing behind her but a few nonsensical fundamental concepts…& she manages to be a hypocrite when addressing those thoughts…

  5. Johnny,

    excellent choice of articles to post. I’m impressed. It’s a great article, first and foremost, and it shows your erudition–thanks to your recent adventure in edumacation??? I highly doubt law school would inculcate you to read Deepak.. it must be your burgeoning hippie coming out to play…About damned time..
