Connecting Condi to Edith Bunker

Written by Roger Wright

Continued from page 1

That clue could be found, whenever there was a moment, when Edith would have to put her foot down, and just say "No"

Edith Bunker could say "no"---better, more forceful, with a trunk full of meaning and true virtue. So much deeper, more profound than Condi ever could. See, here'srepparttar thing.

Archie, likerepparttar 113446 rest of us, wasn't alwaysrepparttar 113447 most moral guy. Didn't always makerepparttar 113448 best decisions. Had some pretty screwy ideas about what maderepparttar 113449 world work. And Edith would put up with about 98% of it. She'd nod her head, ask a question that would draw an audience laugh as we who were watching would sharerepparttar 113450 smug feeling of how much smarter than Archie we were. But Edith, Edith would just go along.

Until it got important. And when it got important---there was ALWAYS a moral, always a truth involved. Edith knew that all Archie's dumb blatherings in his own living room, didn't exactly paverepparttar 113451 way for social justice. But they were just him talking. And inrepparttar 113452 1970's asrepparttar 113453 inherent sexism ofrepparttar 113454 1960's was just starting to surface---there WERE no rich and powerful women executives like Martha Stewart to takerepparttar 113455 scapegoating blame forrepparttar 113456 Ken Lay's and Bernie Ebbers ofrepparttar 113457 world. And there certainly was no Condi. A predecessor in war crimes, Henry Kissinger. But no Condi.

There was just Edith.

And when Edith said "No." She meant "No"

No talking points, no spin, no Karen Hughes, a devil even more dangerous because she dresses as a soccer Mom in a mini van. Just Edith saying no.

And when Edith said, “no”. . . . .we listened.

When Condi says "no". . . we just watch.

who have done nothing to earn it, they sure as hell can afford to care for one sick person who can't care for herself. Maybe it's God's wish that she continues to live. If she dies now, part of her mother will die with her. She deserves to have her daughter for as long as God allows her to live. Let them enjoy what time they have together. They need your help ... so let's help them both by writing to your state senators and congressmen, asking that they keep her alive!
