If I could just see a gay human-badger and a gay human-ostrich joined in holy wedlock by a woman in a persistant vegetative state while aboard a space-ship on a manned mission to Mars, I would renounce all of my cynicism and believe everything that the President has ever said.
I would have no choice.
I think it is delicious irony the way conservatives who are in favor of the war in Iraq and of promoting Democracy there must talk out both sides of their mouths. For anyone who is paying attention can clearly see that in order for it to work, we must convince the people of Iraq to renounce their conservative views and become more liberal in their ways: equality, women’s rights, the whole bit. I love that.
Perhaps, too, conservatives will see that without liberal views, we would all still be living in the dark ages. Of course, many of them seem to want nothing more than to return there. But it doesn’t matter.
Thank god, liberals always win. Conservative sticks-in-the-mud can dig their heals in and plot and scheme to wreck the wheels of progress, and they do, and will continue to do so. But just as we can no longer believe that evil spirits are the cause of common ailments, or that the earth is the center of the universe, or that it’s flat, we have no choice but to grow up, accept reality, and get wise.
And that’s what being liberal is all about.
Oh, and just a reminder: the President and his kabal lied bald-facedly to the American people to start the war in Iraq which has made the world much less safe (its only benefit has been to Haliburton and a few other war profiteers), and he has no intention of finishing it or returning the money it’s wasting. When he said “Mission Accomplished,” he meant “Mission Accomplished.”
