Even when I was 20 I was embarassed by 20-something certainty

Now that I’m 60 I still feel the same way. Of course 60-something certainty can be even worse. Witness the Tea Party!

My Buddy sent me a link to the youtube “confrontation” between a somewhat ill spoken fan of Huey Newton challenging a wannabee Andrew Breitbart who was passing out U.S. Constitutions up at UMD.

Both kids (I think that’s the operative description here) say things that are twisted out of context by the other. What do they think they are doing? Running for President.

The Newton lover gets the worst of it because he’s doing the most talking. Its a good reminder of the adage: It is better to remain silent and have people think you a fool than to open it and prove it.
