cruise with the national review

So disheartening. " Yes, D'Souza says, in a swift shift to domestic politics, "of course" Republican politics is "about class. Republicans are the party of winners, Democrats are the party of losers."

Parallel reality....scary stuff!

There are sometimes echoes of this mindset even here in this small part of the world!

Just been reading the Huffington post and read this....

"Dick Cheney was simply an awful and indecent man, who saw right and tried to wrong it, saw suffering and tried to increase it, saw injustice and tried to worsen it, and saw war and tried to prolong it."

In the words of Alan Shaw (Boston Legal)...Brilliant!!

I think this deserves an 'asshat'!!

Holy crap, is that for real? It read like a perfect satire. I'm tempted to send it to my mother, but she already believes that the WMDs are in Syria, and would likely be vindicated by this story ...

At least it sounds like the bulk of them are very, very old. They will be all dead in a few years.

If only their God would have called them home, perhaps an iceberg mishap? They were all gathered in one place, too. I'm with D, I need a shower after reading that.

Lynette: I love the tone of the British writer, and the fact that the article is called "Ship of Fools". People wonder why Europeans think we're idiots (or worse). Unfortunately, it's almost too sad to be funny. I've said many times that I really don't know how to "peacefully coexist" with these types of people and try to be "civil" and "respectful" of all types. I feel like we're from different universes! I just. don't. get. it.

David: I wish what you said is true, but you apparently haven't heard of the "Young Americans for Freedom". But in general, the young tend to be more liberal -- hopefully they don't all become more conservative as they grow old.

The comments under Matthew Continetti helped restore my faith in people, but he is a total tool.

Have faith y'all- in respect to Lynette's further comment about hope in youth.. There really are people out there doing a damn fine job raising their little humans- just go visit Cowbell or Redneckmother- not to mention the coolest Grandma ever, our own Miss Belle.. And dear, sweet Uncle Tater.. everyone in their little lives adds up in the end.

I see little shits every day that I want to beat senseless, and then go after the parents. Then I encounter little people that are just so amazing and full of everything that should be right in the world- my hope is restored..

All we can do is hope the good and decent folk keep on fighting the good fight and never give up..

1. I hate dumbass sports metaphors and those who abuse them.

2. Even with all the information available at the click of a mouse, way too many younger Americans still can't name Dick Cheney as Vice President. Or identify their state's governor.

3. Let's stop splitting hairs and call the radical right-wing neocon wingnuts what they truly are: Fascists.
