426 more days, 6 hours and 26 minutes and counting...

When I think of the smug self-satisfaction and utter robotic obsequiousness with which my ex-associates in wingnutville used to (and still do) regurgitate the bald-faced, lying swill spit out by the jackbooted propaganda division of the US Military in the service and glory of the worst foreign policy disaster directed by the most transparently corrupt and incompetent administration to ever wield control of our country, all the while sneering at any and all who object as "traitors" who "have no honor" and who "want us to lose" and then when I read about things like this and this, well, I feel a tendency toward violence that requires every ounce of good upbringing and personal fortitude that I possess, and then some, to dispel.

UPDATE: No doubt about it, they're Assholes.

You used to be a wingnut? We're all fortunate you've come to your senses.

And yes, assholes.

Gah!!! No! I'm proud to say I've leaned liberal since I was old enough to watch the Kennedy/Nixon debates and picked Kennedy 'cause I thought he was cuter. No, but Mike and I used to beat our heads against a wall regularly at a local conservative blog until the landlord blocked us.

It is truly amazing that many conservatives who consider themselves as intellectuals, one former friend in particular are obssessed with teh novel 1984.

And they seem to use the same language when describing a person that does not comply with Big Brother. Almost as if there love of the book is ironic because it's a text book for them, but serves as a warning for people with a brain.

I took the book as a warning of what could happen in our society :-)

why fear letting them see the light of day?

Heh, indeed.
Or, as I might usually say: fuckin'-A!

Seriously, they are assholes.

Everyone here have a nice holiday anyway.

Ah. Sorry for the misunderstanding. We all make mistakes, though, I used to think John Stossel was smart. Then he did that organic foods thing...

Look at John Cole, though, there's nothing inherently unforgivable about having been brainwashed.

We are still fortunate to have you on the reality-based community side. :-)

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone who celebrates, and I hope everyone has something to be thankful for.
