LEAVE IT TO PEEVER

 

Helping to advance the insidious liberal agenda

— The ups and downs of war:

We encourage people to step forward to defend America, but we hate it when they get

killed.

We love it when the President says we are the spreaders of freedom and righteousness, but

we hate it when we find out that’s not true.

We get all patriotic when we go to war to rid the world of “weapons of mass destruction,”

but hate it when we can’t find any.

We are impressed when we capture “terrorists” and jail them, but forget that every human

being has a right to be treated with respect and dignity. Even our enemies.

We think that killing people will bring about peace, but in our hearts we know better.

War does give the unemployed and poor some opportunities, but they can be rather short-

lived.

War does help the economy. It takes from the poor and gives to the rich.

When all is said and done, the war stories are mainly tales of sadness and woe, dressed up in patriotism and flags and memories that become skewed with time.

— The lesser of two evils:

A prostitute on the street corner or a pretty little thing that steals someone’s husband?

A bank robber or the CEO of a company who bankrupts the retirement fund?

Bush or Cheney?

A killer or the state appointed executioner?

The enemy or the liberator?

A lying President or a drug dealer?

A right-wing, Christian, Supreme Court Justice or a lobotomy?

Burning a prairie plot or selling it to Wal-Mart?

A politician or a used car salesman?

A crazed cowboy or a drunken Indian?

Winning The Flub-A-Dub award or getting an enema?

— Rove and Bush will go down together. You just don’t fire your creator. If you think Rove will go, you better get another fantasy.

— Bolton appointed as ambassador to the UN: Bush couldn’t get his maniacal, anti-UN man through the Senate, so he appoints him during a recess of the Senate, which was a wrong and disappointing use of an emergency provision that allows a president to make appointments during recesses for “real emergencies.” The craziness of this President just never seems to end. Folks, we’ve entered The Twilight Zone.

— The definition of a politician: A flawed human being who pretends to know how to govern other flawed human beings.

— If it weren’t for right-wingers, I’d have no fun at all: Occasionally someone will tell me that I write too much about right-wingers. That I should have more compassion. Be more tolerant. I thought about it for a long time and have come to the conclusion that they’re wrong.
