You have to be kidding

I find it interesting that the standard “argument” offered by those on the left when they can’t help admitting some lefty has overstepped the bounds of good taste is, “Both sides do it.”

Actually, no. That’s one of the main reasons I lean right. Intellectual integrity is more at home there.

Okay, time for all the folks who disagree to talk about how evil Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh, and Sean Hannity are. Done?

You know, I agree they often take a more belligerent approach to discourse, but I can’t think of a single time they’ve lied. Yet, in this election cycle alone we’ve have innumerable acts by everyone from Sandy Berger to Dan Rather to Joe Wilson to the writers and commenters on dozens of web sites perpetuating not just mistruths, but outright lies and fake documents.

The latest is the email being distributed among college students claiming Dubya intends to reinstate the draft. Even CBS, that paragon of virtue, is reporting it (with caveats to give them crawdad room). It matters little that the two bills attempting to do this are stuck in the House and Senate because Republican leadership are refusing to let them move. They are sponsored by Democrats.

The left have nothing to offer. They have to resort to lies. What other conclusion can I draw?


  1. Let the left keep telling their lies and generally act like the wretched crooks that they are. They’re only turning more and more people off and soon conservatives WILL be outbreeding the liberals..in a sense.

  2. For more than a year I have heard the hate filled attacks on our President. If the left thought this would attract people to their side, I can tell them that this is one Independent who they lost long before they even had a nominee.

  3. They cannot win by spreading negativity and lies, and they’ve become so transparent that folks are fed up with their shenanigans! Desperate people resort to desperate measures!

  4. Pat,
    I’m with you 100%! I too am an Independent & they lost me a long time ago. Even if they could come up with some reasonable solutions to what we face today, you would be hard pressed to listen because of all the hate & lies they spew. And if you did listen to them, you question it because of all the previous lies. I thought we all learned that in school as children.
