Great Cultural Arbiter Kyl calls Obama inauguration speech 'low brow'
http://thinkprogress.org/2009/01/21/kyl-obama-low-brow /



His speech was not high-brow, it was more low-brow and a bit surprising in that regard, said the Senate Minority Whip. <>

He took exception to Obamas call for an end to petty grievances and a political truce in Washington.

If the idea is we have to avoid controversy by getting in line behind his proposals, thats not patriotism, Kyl said. If he is asking that everybody agree with him and thereby have a truce, thats not going to work.

4. Dear Senator Asshole:
Remember, downing the sitting Prez while the country is at war is TREASON.

Sincerely,
