I think W had much better people running the show for him, and he always struck me as more intellectually lazy than stupid (a la Palin). Plus I remember the 2000 election very well and W hadn't spent the previous 4 years assuring the country that he was a buffoon. In fact I'd be willing to bet that most people were generally unfamiliar with him aside from his legacy.

OK,two of your statements:

"simpleton science"

"backwards logic"


Can you explain why?


Example: Do you think the idea of a limited government is
backwards logic?






When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.

Posting a link to a blizzard and then saying, "see global warming isn't real" is simpleton science. Your cute little post about how we shouldn't breathe is simpleton science. And you've been shown this hundreds of times, you just never care to respond.

You use platitudes like "limited government" yet you ask us why we don't have "real wars" anymore. You support a "war" of idealogy and choice.

That's backwards logic.

Global Warming:

My cute little posts on global warming have been links to what other scientists and people are saying.

Reading about a topic and searching for the truth is not my idea of being cute or simple.

No, most of your links have been what other PEOPLE are saying, not other scientists. The last one I was referencing was definately not a scientist.

And anyone who claims there isn't a difference in weather and climate is not a scientist.

Reading is great, but you have to know what you are reading about or you'll fall for anything.

Yes well I feel you did that when I said:

Big government liberalism in a nutshell. Government knows how better to spend our money than we do. So let's just give them more and let them spend it "smartly."
And you replied:

When I take a look around at the general populace, I have little trouble concluding that the government knows better how to allocate funds for public use than they would. In fact, I have no trouble.
Allowing people to keep more of their paycheck is not saying they should also allocate the funds the government does receive.

But to my point about public vs private spending. You certainly see Government as a better trustee of health care spending than the private individual do you not?

Like talking snakes encouraging you to eat bad produce as being the reason for anything bad

You see, it's this type of backwards logic that doesn't make sense to thinking people. This line of logic may work if it read "You certainly see Government as a better trustee of health care spending than ______(insert rich man's name that does not have a lifelong or terminal disease) do you not?" But for everyone else it's just ignorance.

Why are you reducing it down to individual vs government on healthcare spending? This completely ignores that the individual's options are limited. It ignores those that don't have the capability to spend on healthcare, it ignores those that even if they could spend are limited by medicine that is driven by pharma lobbies. It ignores so much that I'm convinced that you haven't even really ever thought about the current healthcare system you're just towing the party line.

By the end of the night, much of the room knelt in prayer – one of the pastors, Rick Scarborough, went after homosexuals several times to choruses of amens -- before watching a Tea Party video.

Tancredo was one of the 3 candidates (with Huckabee...and Hunter???) who raised his hand to the question "How many of you do not believe in evolution?" at one of the Republican debates in 2008. Yeah, he's for 'real'.

A racist moron.

Palin continues to win
as her detractors agree among themselves that she is not.
W had the most powerful people in the party behind him, including many Fiscal and Foreign Policy conservatives. Palin will not have these people behind her.
She's a one-trick social issues candidate. The Jesus Horse in the race.

If the Republicans can do one thing correctly, it's maximizing their efforts in elections. Palin has no chance to get the 2012 nomination, the Republicans themselves won't allow it. She may even run on the Tea Party ticket and lose the election for the Reps. I doubt it, but it's more plausible that seeing her get the Rep nomination. I don't even know why she's a news story other than to point at her and laugh. And that's all this is...as if she's some representation of the caricature that so many people want to believe. Of course, there is truth to some of those exaggerations, but that's why they generally work.
