Time to Gut This One Out
I think I know why liberals have fared poorly in match-ups with Republicans lately. I believe that liberals are inherently better human beings than conservatives, and they tend to come up queasy during the last sickening weeks of a political campaign. That's the main reason for recent defeats, other than the vote-rigging. While conservatives delight in their hero Rush Limbaugh going after Michael J. Fox, the rest of us are actually appalled into stunned silence. The urge to disengage from this process is powerful. It is not going to be easy to stomach these last couple of weeks before the election, but stomach them we must.
After all, the religious right manages to keep focused even though their misguided antics have helped set the laws of this country back to Europe in the 13th century. Ahh, religion. It's the ultimate scam. All a low-life loser like John Ashcroft has to do is announce he's a fundamental Christian and the conservative base flocks to his side. Meanwhile if he had been allowed to have just one slow dance with a girl in high school, he might have turned out less weird and America would have benefited immensely.
What the religious right has wrought in the name of morality would make Jesus weep tears of blood. Torture, preemptive wars, and an open assault on the poor in favor of the mega-rich? Be proud. If your cherished religious beliefs even come close to being true, you will be holding all future meetings of the modern GOP in hell where it belongs. Do you get it? You are the worst enemy America has ever had. All our other enemies made us just believe more strongly in the ideals that made America great. But you insidious holy rollers have helped destroy America from within, giving unlimited power to a man who shouldn't be allowed to ride a bicycle without a helmet on his ass, for that is where his head resides.
Isn't it disgusting to see the level of caring about Iraq suddenly climb to such heights with the Bush crowd? The burns and the amputations and the deaths from IEDs were okay early on when they were helping keep the Bushies in power. Now it appears they are hurting the cause and may actually threaten Republican control of Congress. Ahh, the anguish! The President even gave two press conferences in as many weeks to try and spin the unspinable and defend the indefensible.
Let's review Iraq, just in case you're still throbbing with joy after hearing your Republican Messiah explain that he never meant "stay the course" to mean "stay the course", or whatever jive you're buying off this corrupt moron this week. Iraq was based on three things: Lies, Lies about the Lies, and Lies about the Lies about the Lies. The fact that this President and his pretend Daddy Cheney aren't sitting in a federal prison by now is a mark of shame on this country. Hopefully, the system will work and one branch of government will return to being the checks and balances that have gone so out of control lately. If that happens, it will be a great day. If that doesn't happen it will be because of voter fraud. These poll numbers are looking too decisive for the House to stay Republican. I believe it would take a major crime for that to happen, but major crimes are what this administration is all about.
It's up to the progressive liberals - the people who can see the inherent twisted meanness in sick weirdoes like Rumsfeld and Limbaugh - to hang in there for a couple of more weeks. It is disgusting to watch these GOP monsters release their toxic spew. It is downright nauseating, but it is necessary to endure it and not walk away, despite what your superior goodness tells you to do. Remember, history has shown that even the vilest of criminal enterprises eventually crumble and fall, and with any luck, the same will be true for the Bush administration.
