  1. I’m with Darren. It’s possible to talk about controversial subjects without being offensive. So, rather than saying “Read My Lips: No More Bush” followed by dropping your pants, you might choose instead an intelligent “Here’s why George Bush shouldn’t be re-elected…”

    Or something like that. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Man, those suggestions are pathetic. Taxes? Street cleaning?

    I’d say you definitely should court controversy here. I think by ‘inoffensive’, they probably mean radical approachs and posturing (images of aborted fetuses immediately spring to mind). What does it matter if you disagree with the people in the room? That should just make it more interesting, shouldn’t it? It becomes a real challenge, then, to try and change somebody’s mind.

    If, for example, you’re adamantly opposed to the war in Iraq, start with this article: They’ve already done your homework for you.

    If I were you, I’d brainstorm a list of subjects I feel passionate and opinionated about, and choose one of them.
