Listening to the podcast...the discussion of the Imperial Family has to qualify as one of the more ignorant I've heard in quite awhile.  The succession crisis got fairly good coverage out here in the sticks, so I would guess that in Washington DC someone might of heard about this...especially the proposal that Naruhito take a concubine in order to produce a male heir...

Even I heard of this stuff down here in Tejas ... DC is the center of their universe, ain't it?

Listening to Gene Robinson -- he's absolutely right about Buchanan. Pat and I are completely opposed on most stuff and most of his views are scary, but my goodness, he's a great political analyst. If I were running for a major office, I'd hire him in a second as my political strategist.

Buchanan refers to Arlington and Alexandria VA as Marxist country. He can kiss my purple state ass.

If he considers that area to be Marxist, I can't imagine what he'd think about me. Now that I think about it, he probably wouldn't work for me -- I'd have to appeal to his natural competitiveness.

Either that or cash ...

Sadly, not really surprised by TK --- but the across-the-board ignorance was a little startling.  These are edumacated folks who I assume follow current events from time to time.

Well, in fairness, she wasn't conceiving at all, and that was the issue.  One daughter after almost 15 years of marriage, and it is highly unlikely that there will be any other kids from that branch.

Plenty of other male claimants in the collateral branches, except that they all got the heave-ho in 1947...along with any children born from concubines
