decent, honest, hard-working, patriotic, true-blue conservative
This is the kind of things that make me think there is still hope for the world. Becky Miller was a former aide to Bill Sizemore, the president of Oregon Taxpayers United, a sleazy anti-tax activist group that has caused no end of trouble for Oregonians due to his misguided efforts to "reform" the tax code in our fair state. She recently sat down to read Al Franken's new book and was shocked to discover that she liked it. She liked it because it "meshes" with what she has observed about some conservative leaders.
The leaders we conservatives have trusted have taken advantage of our trust to line the pockets of the wealthy and powerful, and it's time we rose up and drove out these greedy liars. They've hijacked and distorted our belief system for their own gain, and in doing so are destroying our credibility.
And if we decent, honest, hard-working, patriotic, true-blue conservatives of this country neglect the duty we have to our children and grandchildren, we will never be able to work with those decent, honest, hard-working, patriotic, true-blue liberal Americans that these lying creeps have taught us to despise. We will never be safe to debate them or, when warranted, to listen to them and maybe even agree with them. We will never be safe to work out our differences or to work together. And we will never be able to build on the all-American sense of unity that burst forth following 9/11, only to disappear shortly thereafter in a cloud of lying, greedy partisan politics.
I'm still a decent, honest, hard-working, patriotic, true-blue conservative. But Rush Limbaugh, Bill O'Reilly, Ann Coulter, Sean Hannity and the rest of you lying liars -- I'm through with you! (Read the book, and you'll get that one, too.)
