Mensa convention at Sykes' blog

Presumably if you read this blog you know that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are secretly socialists. But did you know that John McCain is practically a socialist? Did you know that some people wish they could vote for George Bush a third time? Did you know the Democrats want to suck up to Europe?

If not then you must check out the comment string at Charlie Sykes' "blog."

Here's one example of the sterling insight offered there:
If a Democrat the likes of NObama or Hillary are in charge with a Democrat Congress we will see the beginning of an age of darkness the likes of which the world will have never seen before. America will become like a festering fruit abandoned in the muck and rain, once plentiful, ripe, and full of life, now unpalatable. For the good of America I will hold my nose and vote for McLame.

Or this:
McCain has angered me from the outset, but I will take a liberal before a Marxist. I want less regulation and a free economy, a strong national defense, and a strong immigration policy. McCain hasn't proven himself on any of these except defense. Nevertheless, the thought of Hillary or Obama appointing judges, rubber stamping a Democratic Congress, etc. scares me. In my dreams, a brokered Republican Convention nominates Newt in order to break a logjam. (Anyone can dream)

Or this:

...At least McCain is right on Iraq: Just win. Who knows, if he agressively pursues the war on terror, then allows thousands of al Qaeda members access to our courts, maybe we will have to appoint legions of new (somewhat conservative)federal judges to wade through all of those cases. After my vote I will go home and shower immediately. YECH!

Or this:

I will vote Hillary in the fall,she will win. Why? The unfortunate reality of the world as we now have it,is that it is divided into two factions: violent/masculine-Islam, & the soft/feminine-Europe & the West,primarily the USA. USA voters now love the idea of being mothered,we want a familar teat as our security,so we will make a mother our leader.We'l get what we deserve. This will be a disaster.But the disaster must crush LibDems,not Conservats. Tyranny is knocking at our door.

  1. Why they don't vote for Alan Keyes?

    He's the real conservative of the bunch.

  2. But remember, talk radio has no influence on its listeners. Or so I've been told.

  3. Oh...isn't that special. The arrogance of some people. He can take his ridiculous "categories" and...well...you know. How can these conservative people be so stupid to allow themselves to be "categorized" by some man who means nothing to their lives? Please, for God's sake people, think for yourselves!

  4. Oh, and, Ruby Ridge FTW.

  5. Sorry...what does "FTW" mean?

  6. Oh, I know...don't get me started.

  7. Ruby Ridge is what got Tim McVeigh started.

  8. I have a feeling something else got Tim McVeigh started long before Ruby Ridge. But, what is up with Glenn making such an asinine comment? Am I missing something? Capper help me out here...please.

  9. I didn't say that Ruby Ridge is the only thing that drove McVeigh. However, Ruby Ridge looms large in the far right-wing hagiography.

    It's not particularly interesting that someone would consider fleeing to the hills from what they might consider tyranny.

    But expressly invoking Ruby Ridge is indeed interesting, at least to me. Ruby Ridge, incidentally, took place during the first Bush administration, as opposed to Waco, which was a Clinton production.

  10. Oh, what a King has to do for a damsel in distress...

    After slogging through all 180+ comments...

    And after seeing iT's comment...

    Anyway, Ruby Ridge is basically a "Remember the Alamo" type of thing for the extremist, anti-government, paranoid right wingers. It is their conspiracy theory centerpiece to convince themselves the government is out to take over every aspect of their lives.

    IMHO, it is commonly a sign of paranoid schizophrenia on a functional level.

  11. Good Lord capper. 180+ posts on the Sykes site. You are getting hazard pay?

  12. Oh...how funny..."invoking Ruby Ridge".

    ReplyDelete
  13. I don't get it. Why is that funny?

  14. iT-

    I doth believe fair play was being sarcastic.

    Although she is a conservative, she is most definitely one of the most agreeable and level-headed ones I have had the pleasure of meeting.

    I think maybe too much exposure to the writings of RE and DS have you a little on edge, good friend. It is good to be wary, but not too wary.

  15. Huh? I'm just asking. Anyway, I'm sure it was mentioned in the service of dark comedy, and I'm about the last guy to object to that.

  16. Just trying to keep the peace between friends, iT.

    I hope I didn't offend.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Not at all. You know me, I can offend, but never be offended.

  18. LOL. Good thing you're a member of the royal court, else I would have taken that as a challenge. ;)
