He Thinks They Think They Think

It's as if Dave Weinbaum read my mind…

You must be a liberal:

If you voted for the Iraq war when it was the popular thing to do, then claim you were hypnotized by Bush's "lies" when it became unpopular.

If you say Bush is "dumb" even after he beat you in two elections you were positive you would win.

If you believe your Democrat controlled congress should spend it's time investigating and impeaching the president in wartime even though there's no evidence of any crimes.

If you hate Dubya more than you love America.

If your idea of free speech is to shut down talk radio.

If you don't want profiling for terrorists even though evidence is overwhelming that most are Middle Easterners.

If you think personal attacks will ingratiate you to the voters.

If you think the war on terror has nothing to do with the war in Iraq.

If you think that more than ½ of the country is brain dead because they aren't in lockstep with everything you're sure is right.

If you're for abortion but against the death penalty.

If you voted for General Patraeus and the surge, then call it a failure well before he had the troops needed to perform it.

If you think capitalism should be replaced by Socialism, despite hundreds of years of evidence that our economy is number 1 in the world.

If you think we have to dumb down our economy because of the man-made Global Warming scam.

If you think it's our fault terrorists attacked us.

If you think everything will be "hunky dory" if we just talk to the terrorists.

If you think the war on terror is just a bumper sticker.

If you like higher taxes, when all evidence shows that lower taxes benefits everyone.

If you think all American corporations are evil.

If you think government can end poverty.

If you think you can't have a view about foreign policy if you haven't served in the military…that is…unless its' your opinion.

If you believe there is no liberal bias in the media.

If you believe there's a vast right wing conspiracy.

If you believe George Bush had the levies blown up in New Orleans.

If you equate Republicans with Nazis.

If you believe Bill Clinton was impeached for covering up sex.

And finally, you're stunned and dismayed that fellow Liberals, Michael E. O'Hanlon and Kenneth M. Pollack, are claiming they see success in Iraq, via their article entitled "A War We Just Might Win."

By the way, there are over a hundred comments to Davey Green's stream of consciousness which I highlighted in my previous entry. And those comments are an adventure in themselves.

About tedwest

A longtime veteran of comedy and political forums, I decided that I needed a more restful venue because... well... I finally hate everybody. Except my wife that is... and my ex-wife.. and... no, that's about it. I lead about as simple a life as one can, preferring activities that include anything that doesn't involve going out and seeing YOU! And I particularly enjoy what I call "Get the Bitch" movies on Lifetime. You know the ones where the intended victim finally does something so incredibly stupid that she forfeits her right to live, and from that moment on you're rooting for the stalker. Of course, it rarely works out the way you want, but when it does, the feeling you get is... well, there's nothing else like it, other than, maybe, eating chocolate chip cookies. Oh, and I'm proudly anti-wildlife, both foreign and domestic, and anti-environment - especially foreign environments. I think Howard Stern put it best when he said, "If fifty percent of the population died tomorrow, I can live with that." And I feel the same about the other fifty percent, so together, we've pretty much got it all covered.

    Thanks for sharing this.
    Mr. Weinbaum's observations are written with Coulteresque clarity. It's amazing how simple things are when you begin to understand that liberal views are not magically made valid or worthy of consideration just because they communicate them.

    No need to thank me, this is a perfect example of the philosophy I formulated in college where I would drop any class in which the instructor required a term paper. Bear with me here…
    I figured that such things didn't reflect how intelligent you were or how much you knew, they were merely a reflection of how much tedium you could endure. More importantly, I felt there was always someone who could say it better, and that I was smart enough to recognize what I wanted to say when somebody else said it.
    Then, all I had to do was point!
    I don't know about you, but when I read Mr. Weinbaum's list, my immediate reaction was, what could I add to make it even more comprehensive and pithy, and after an intense and grueling ten seconds, I decided Dave had totally nailed it.
