Compare And Contrast

Today's post is a throwback to my days as a college professor. One of my favorite assignments was the tried and true 'compare-and-contrast' essay question. I won't ask you to submit papers, but I will suggest that, as a thought exercise, you ponder the following.

Compare and contrast Bruce and Caitlyn Jenner.

 Compare and contrast 20th century liberals with 21st century ones.

Compare and contrast Iraq during the Bush administration and Iraq during the obama administration.

Compare and contrast Salon's hypocritical stance on holding white people responsible for the actions of a small minority and holding muslims responsible for the actions of a (alleged) small minority.

Finally, in recent news Chris Christie became the 14th - 14th - republican presidential candidate. The one person I would love to see enter the race is Condoleezza Rice. If she were to run against Hillary, all she would need is this one 'compare and contrast' graphic.
