Republicans: Plumb Tucker'd Out

Rage rising on the McCain campaign trail - CNN.com: "[A] woman told McCain: 'I don't trust Obama. I have read about him and he's an Arab.' McCain shook his head and said, 'No ma'am, no ma'am. He's a decent family man... [a] citizen that I just happen to have disagreements with on fundamental issues. That's what this campaign is all about.' The audience then applauded McCain."

Democrats have long been slammed by pundits on every side for being guilty of the crime of acting superior to their detractors, and it's true. The logo of their party is a jackass, after all. If you ever get into an conversation with someone who's slant is strongly liberal, you'll notice they have a tendency to check any kind of humility at the door and, when talking about making broad social strokes using the widest possible brush, they'll punctuate their conversation with intonations like "of course", "obviously", and "it stands to reason".

Sometimes these terms go unspoken, but you can still hear them in the way they speak. Liberals, as a rule, know more than you and know what's best for you so shut up and let them save the world, goddamit.

Then you have the Republicans. Republicans used to stand for the small government and self-policing frame of mind that only the Constitutionalists and the Libertarians still strive to achieve, and at some point, I'm guessing around 1940, the party started to turn into the bastion of the fucking unbelievably retarded, which is sad.

I like small government.

So now we have the fundamentalist Christians who are recruits for the GOP and don't have the slightest clue what they're saying. McCain is representing the Bible-thumping, sister-fucking scum of the earth right now, folks. Thank God he's at least trying to set them straight one at a time.

Fact of the matter is that the great unwashed need some kind of a hero, and enlightenment isn't on their todo list. This just makes the liberals even more holier-than-thou, which doesn't earn them any more gratitude just because they happen to be right for once.

Then again, there's no credit to be had when you win a battle of wits against an unarmed person. It's the 21st century, guys. Why are we even having these arguments?
