Toning Down the Rhetoric

“[The Republican successes in the 2010 elections] happened for the same reason the Civil War happened in the United States. It happened because the Southern states, the slaveholding states, didn’t want to see a president who was opposed to slavery.

"In this case, I believe, a lot of people in the United States don’t want to be governed by an African-American, particularly one who is liberal, who wants to spend money and who wants to reach out to include everyone in our society….” ~Rep. Jim Moran D-VA

Even worse than believing this and saying it, is saying it to an Arab-language station. What this guy and other's of his ilk don't comprehend is belittling the 2010 elections and the Tea Party movement either means you really don't get that people are concerned about our country (not the color of the man leading it) or you do indeed get it and would jeopardize the country by diminishing it to keep your party in office... Either option is disheartening and yes, I'll say it...un-Patriotic.

And we won't even get into Meghan McCain...the poor man's Whitney Thompson.

Personally, I don't care about the tone of the rhetoric. I've said for years that I think all is fair in patriotism and politics...BUT, if you're the party out there preaching Hug O War --don't turn around and spew crap like this. You hypocrites.

So, if you're bored this weekend and feel like messin' with the worst of them... The liars, the dis-information spreaders, the misinformed...You can find a lot of them here.
