Derangement Is Hereditary

Sean Hannity dubbed it Palin Derangement Syndrome (“PDS”) as he described the vehement hatred that many liberals feel for McCain’s former running mate in the last presidential election.  The vitriol that lefties spew anytime Sarah Palin’s name comes up is mind-numbing and is actually getting laughable.  I have some old acquaintances that have found me on facebook and while I don’t do politics on that social medium, others do and some of the stuff they write is h-i-l-a-r-i-o-u-s!  The sad part is that many don’t know enough to even know what they are talking about.  They don’t seem to be able to discern between Tina Fey’s character and the real Sarah Palin.

A Third Party

As we wait to see if we get health care shoved up our posterior a subtopic is how the electorate will react to those who voted to stick it to us.  I got this note from a friend:

“I read some articles recently in which both Karl Rove and Mitt Romney warned tea party activists against supporting 3rd party candidates in elections.  They both seem to think this will divide the Republican vote and increase the chances of the Dems staying in power.  What is your opinion on this?

Whores and Prostitutes (as a metaphor)

Ben Nelson moneyThe health care legislation speeding train has been getting Americans upset for the last few weeks.  Neither the left or the right are happy as the left wants so much more from the legislation and the right just wants you to die (at least according to Florida’s Rep. Grayson).  The story over the last week centered around Nebraska’s Senator Ben Nelson who was holding out, allegedly, over issues in the legislation relating to federal funding of abortions.  The lame stream media often cast him as a man under extreme pressure and most photographs illustrated this vision.
