Remember when Spencer Tracy's "Henry Drummond," defending the teacher, B.T. Cates, who was arrested for teaching Darwin's theory of evolution, was confronted by his old, right wing friend, "Matthew Harrison Brady," played by Fredric March, who was prosecuting Cates? March's character asks Tracy's why he abandoned their friendship of so many years.
Spencer Tracy's memorable response was elegant and profound, and quite applicable today as a message to the few remaining hold-outs on the extreme conservative side of our current cultural evolution, who even now, are trying to say that Colin Powell's endorsement of Barack Obama was racially motivated.

Listen up, Rush:

"Perhaps," Drummond says, "it was you who moved away from me, simply by standing still."
