Wait a minute...

Congresswoman Shelia Jackson Lee (D)

So now the Democrats are the pro-Michael Jackson party and the Republicans are the anti-Michael Jackson party? Cos, you know...this might be the first time the Republicans have been right about something for 40 years. Thank God it is such an important issue!

OK, it is actually just one Democratic congresswoman, maybe two for a House Resolution honoring Jacko that won't pass...but who needs nuance, right? American history has always been about two opposite camps - Republicans and Democrats, liberals and conservatives, Unionists and secessionist Confederates, Abolitionists and pro-slavery advocates, colonialists and republican revolutionaries, blacks and whites, north and south, east and west, city and rural, appeasers and warmongers, Wall Street-ers and hippies, Coke and Pepsi, McDonald's and Burger King - it's the old eternal tug of now you can add to that the "cultish blind love of Jackson-ites" and the "complete hate of Jackson-ites."
