The Walk of Shame

I know - I said I was done, but I just had to add this. Our friend kissfan (whose 2-year blog-i-versary I'd like to toast) made the observation that the Coultergeist claims to be from the party of higher morals yet she dresses like she's trolling for action.

No kidding - in she sashays to the Today Show at - what - 6 in the morning? - all skanked out in a skin-tight black minidress. Girlfriend, if you're dressed like that at 6 AM, you're doing the Walk of Shame.

And, come to think of it, she was.

Since she has this idea about liberals being 'loose and immoral', she feels compelled to 'out-slut' them all. And brag about how Christian she is while she does it.

Have you noticed that there is this pathetic sense of 'one-upmanship' that Republicans seem to revel in? "Our women are better-looking than Democratic women" (which is not true!) - as if the only way they can win is for somebody else to lose; as if the life of our country is a game where there are winners and losers - "We won, so shut up and get over it" (even though that isn't true!). As though winning an election (which they didn't actually do) means that the other half of America doesn't exist!

Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't remember the Democrats being like that when they were in power. I really don't.

Update: I just e-mailed the Today Show to express my disapproval of their having her on their show; if you'd like to do the same, here's the address - today@nbc.com...

one-up-manship is a tactic used by people who want to belittle others. It isn't divided along party lines; rather it is used by people who need to climb over others to prove their own self-worth. You'll see bumper stickers saying things like "My grandchild is cuter than your grandchild" and "My God is better than your God", and so on.

If one has confidence in their own beliefs, one doesn't need to force feed them on others; nor do they need to belittle others. In recent years, the Republicans tend to force feed their agenda, which leads me to believe that perhaps at heart they know their agenda is lacking.

Of course, I could be wrong.

Alicia,

The people at MBC don't care. We need to email their sponsors.
