I used to have a better sense of humor before the election.
I am always astonished at the way conservatives love to insist that their ideas are based on logic, while liberals are guided by uninformed, soft-headed emotions. It seems to me to be the exact opposite. Scratch a conservative hard enough, and you'll find the emotional trigger that makes them fear women, freedom (real freedom, not 'freedom'), gays, the poor, those of alternate skin persuasions, legal immigrants, illegal immigrants, intellectuals (how they managed to demonize knowledge is quite a trick, but they done done it!), etc., and makes them sitting ducks for those truly unscrupulous power-whores who use them to advance their real goals - personal power and wealth.
Conservative? Not a chance, friends. Not this bunch. Real conservatives...conserve! Not recklessly spend money they don't have to steal things they have no right to. These guys LOVE welfare and affirmative action, as long it's for their corporate pals and their progeny. Fiscal responsibility is for suckers, and so is civic responsibility and duty to country - you can bet none of their kids' butts are on the front lines in Falloujah; they'll be partying - I mean studying - at the Ivy League college of their parents' legacies.
While they blather on about 'life is precious', they're happy to needlessly and callously expend the lives of our servicemen and women like so many wadded-up tissues in pursuit of their own ends, while destroying any shred of moral authority that the United States was once proud to claim. The vast, yawning chasm between what they say and what they do is tantamount to the Orwellian slogan "WAR IS PEACE, FREEDOM IS SLAVERY, IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH". (In searching for the exact quote, I found this: )
