The Sad State Of Conservative Conversation

Why is it that some folks call Rev Wright "unhinged" or "hater" and then turn around and praise this as some sort of a rational solution?
If these solutions don't stop the tides of illegal flow in and out of our
borders, a friend of mine has a Texas-tough alternative and answer to replace
the government's virtual fence failure. In fact, he says, we don't need a
security fence at all. All we need to do is to post signs and position manned
trucks at key points, just like our government does at Area 51, the top secret
military airfield in remote central Nevada, around
which there are no fences or walls. There is never a breach or unwanted border
crossing there, at least that we hear about! And why? Because the boundary sign
reads and is never questioned, "Warning: Use of deadly force authorized."

Illegal immigration is illegal but last I checked it wasn't a capital offense. So does Norris think it's okay to use deadly force because these are brown people he's talking about slaughtering? Or is he just nuts?

Where are the bloggers condemning both intemperate speakers? Where are those who condemn The Drug Addicted Rush Limbaugh when he calls for violence in the streets of Denver?

I'm dreaming. (singing to the tune of White Christmas) "I'm dreaming
of riots in Denver." Remember 1968? And which party did that? It was the
radicals in that party, the anti-war radicals, the same bunch of clowns that are
running around defining the Democrat Party today. What the world thinks of us?
There was an analogy just this week about somebody in the world. I'm drawing a
mental blank about this.
Make the connection people. Limbaugh has been calling on his slack-jawed followers for months to participate in something he gaily calls Operation Chaos to impersonate Democrats. Then he tempts and wheedles and says he's "dreaming" that there will be demonstrations in Denver. you don't need to be Ward Churchill to connect the dots there.

Just dreaming folks. He wouldn't actually call for action. Of course, he can't be held to account for the actions of his less controllable listeners.

If this is what passes for political discourse among the mainstream Right there is no doubt why good people are turning away from its failed philosophies. These guys aren't wrapped real tight.


  1. You'd better watch yourself there, pal. This is Chuck Norris you're talking about. Remember, the man doesn't have a chin under his beard, he has another fist!

  2. Which is apparently why he feels the need to talk out his ass.

  3. Disregard political affilitaion, but ask yourself why in Wisconsin ...having affairs or multiple wives by elected officials is almost a red badge of courage?

    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Ohio's attorney general admitted an extramarital affair with an employee Friday, soon after three of his aides were fired or forced out after an investigation found evidence of sexual harassment and other misconduct.

    Leader of both parties were critical of Attorney General Marc Dann, one of several Democrats swept into office in 2006 after a scandal over state investments sullied Republicans. He apologized to his wife and supporters but promised not to step down.

    "I'm embarrassed. I have taken responsibility for what I've done," he told reporters.

    Dann had lived with two of the aides at an apartment during much of his first year in office and some of the alleged harassment by one of the aides occurred there.

    "I did not create an atmosphere in my public and personal life that is consistent with the important mission of the Office of Attorney General ...," Dann said. "I am heartbroken by my failure to recognize the problems being created and by my failure to stop them."

    Ohio GOP deputy chairman Kevin DeWine called for Dann's resignation, saying he turned the attorney general's office into a "raunchy frat pad."
