Remember Cindy... what's her name?
Meet Joe Soptic. He's the latest in the long line of people that make the tragic mistake of thinking that the Democrats care. Trust me, they don't. So Joe is now the latest victim of the Democrats who gets suckered into exploiting the memory of a dead relative for the best interest of the party. I know, it seems like the thing to do at the time. The media attention and all of the politicians fawning over you makes it seem as if they are genuinely concerned. They will give you well wishes and follow you around... until election day, that is. They don't care about your loved one. They don't want to make it better for you. They just want the emotion of your story behind their campaign. Speaking of which, has anyone seen Cindy Sheehan?
Can a leopard change his spots?
Many times the answer to some of the political questions that face us is somewhere right in the middle of the left and the right. The left will often make absurd claims like "Republicans want dirty air and water" and the right will respond with "Democrats want people to get abortions." While there may be a handful of extremists who for whatever reason want dirty air or water, nobody is going to believe a statement as idiotic as that. Furthermore, most Democrats who support abortion rights have a much more moderate position on the issue like I do myself. While abortion is objectionable and should be used only as a last resort, it is a medical decision that a woman must make for herself, and her decision should not be legislated by the Government. So what of this war on women we have been hearing about? Where does the truth lie on this issue?
Should Ron Paul have run as a Democrat?
I didn't think of this myself until just now, so I'm not faulting Ron Paul and his campaign for not coming up with this themselves. That having been said, I'm not a Paul supporter, nor am I inclined to consider strategy for his efforts. The thought just crept up on me the other day when I was considering the West Virginia, Arkansas, and Kentucky primary results. Since President Obama had a hard time defending himself against a prisoner, an out of state lawyer, and "anybody but Obama" respectively, imagine if he had faced a real opponent. Now the first inclination is to imagine candidate Hillary facing Obama. But continue down the list and eventually you get there. Ron Paul would have likely beat President Obama in West Virginia. Follow that thought to it's conclusion, and the results are stunning.
Not that there's anything wrong with that.
First and foremost, let me get this out of the way. No, I will not stop using the subtitle "Not that there's anything wrong with that" whenever the word "Gay" appears in the main title. Yes, I know I have worn it out and no, I don't care. That aside, when I heard that Newsweek had assigned this title to President Obama I couldn't help but think that somewhere out there, Larry Sinclair must be having a good laugh. It turns out that I was right. But I figured that now would be a good time to take a look at what actually happened this week, and how it changes the outlook for Gay Marriage in this country. Also, what impact will this have on the upcoming election? We could argue back and forth all day about this being a political move or a true change of heart, but that would be pointless. No matter what type of move it is, it will have political implications. So the important question is what will those be?
Having fun with President Obama's latest generalization of women.
For the last few years I have been questioning the true genius of our President. I must now say that I stand corrected. Upon hearing about the story from his book about a girl he had dated, and learning that it was in fact a "composite girlfriend" I figured the guy would be in big time trouble with women voters. After all, anybody who has dated one of these specimens has learned by now not to say "you women are all alike" or "it figures that a woman would say that" or "your sister is really hot." That last one doesn't really apply here, but you shouldn't say that. It will get you hurt. But back to the genius of President Obama, this guy has managed to find a way to lump every women he has ever dated into one chick, give her a generic name, and tell her story without outraging the ladies. And if that wasn't enough, he created a new fictional girl to show how his policies will help all women who are exactly alike throughout the course of there extremely similar existence. Her name is Julia. Let's have fun with her, shall we?
Will dog lovers do in Romney?
It seems a major controversy is brewing for the Romney campaign. Apparently, back in the 1980's (that's like a whole other decade) Mitt loaded up the clan in the Family Truckster (a real car that real families take on vacation) and headed to Maine for some r&r (raspberries and rickets). Just a typical American family going on a typical vacation to a typical tourist spot. Right? Nothing to see here. Move along. Accept... At this point I should warn women, children, the elderly, anyone with a weak heart, hearing impairments, or a propensity for anal leakage to turn away... They strapped their dog to the roof of the family truckster !!! Now, for the disclaimer. He was in a kennel, it was turned around backwards to minimize the wind, and they stopped regularly to beat him. Or was it to feed him? I can't remember. But it was one of those. Here is what some idiot animal rights activist had to say about it.
How Mitt Romney may have single handedly brought down Obamacare.
Michelle Bachmann has been the most outspoken critic of President Obama's health care reform legislation. Newt Gingrich has had the toughest stance on what he would do to get rid of it. Rick Santorum has insisted that Romney would be the wrong choice for Republicans because of his own efforts at reforming the health care system in Massachusetts. But Mitt just might have an air of legitimacy in this debate that none of the others have if the Supreme Court shoots down the individual mandate or the whole law, as many experts watching the process are now expecting them to do. To understand why this is the case, one has to look all the way back to 2004.
See? I Told You So!
I know what you are thinking. I'm wrong, right? President Obama called Fluke to offer his support. He not only does not agree with Limbaugh, he completely disagrees with him. It is the Republicans that are sexist. It is Limbaugh who attacked all women with his comments. It is President Obama who is indeed standing up for Sandra Fluke, and all women. Rush even admits that his comments were wrong now, so score this as a win for Obama and the left. Right? Perhaps I will. It is a win for Obama most likely, and it is a win for the left. But if it is, what does this say about women in our Country? I found an interesting article over at the Associated Press, and it is chock full of good stuff that 99% of you will miss when you read it. I had the advantage of knowing what the left already thinks of women. I had the foreknowledge that Obama and company already view you ladies as sluts and prostitutes. I set in motion a plan to prove it. I didn't need to, thank you AP.
