Over at K8, a cat, and a mission blog she says she thinks she's finally got something to say on this here (belated) five year anniversary of 9/11.

Hat tip to GayProf.

Thank you Jon Stewart. Thank you for bringing a progressive viewpoint and levity to the media. Thank you for opening the door. Thank you Stephen Colbert for The Word, for parodying the right, for bringing that parody right to the President. Thank you for your good thinking and your bravery. Because of you, we now have Keith Olbermann.

Thank you Keith Olbermann for your dead seriousness, your clear thinking and your righteous anger. Thank you for speaking your truth in the mainstream media. Thank you for your bravery.

Now I know the way it works is that it takes lots of white men to do something before women or people of color are allowed to do it (though it's great that Jon Stewart, at least, is not Christian). So I'm hoping to see some new voices out there taking on the systemic oppression of the US's administration next. But while that starts to happen, I wanted to take the time to thank you men. Good job, guys. You are forever on my list of favoritest people.

Bravo! Encore!
