Quote of the Day

Maureen "Mo" Tucker of the Velvet Underground (Tucker was recently re-discovered in a YouTube video in which she expressed sympathy for the Tea Party):

When you consented to an interview with that television reporter, did you envision that your words would be spread online a year and a half later?

No. I'm amazed at this.

What are your feelings about the online reactions? Many people seem upset or outraged.

I'm stunned that so many people who call themselves liberal yet are completely intolerant. I thought liberals loved everyone: the poor, the immigrant, the gays, the handicapped, the minorities, dogs, cats, all eye colors, all hair colors! Peace, love, bull! Curious they have no tolerance whatsoever for anyone who doesn't think exactly as they do. You disagree and you're immediately called a fool, a Nazi, a racist. That's pretty f'd up!! I would never judge someone based on their political views. Their honesty, integrity, kindness to others, generosity? Yes. Politics? No!
