Quick, What’s The Only Thing That’s Worse Than A Liberal?

No, not a Muslim liberal, you silly, I'm talking about…

Gimme an "M"

Gimme and "O"

No, not "monkey," don't get ahead of me.

All right, I'm talking about a "moderate."

One called Rush Limbaugh today (Yes, they are capable of making rudimentary decisions)

Our moderate, who labeled himself as an independent,  wanted to know why liberals and conservatives can't just get along?

His reasoning was that each side thinks the same bad things about the other, and that as a result, we could never get anywhere. He wanted to know if Rush would simply "wipe out" liberals if he could?

Limbaugh explained that he would, but he would do it democratically by educating people and showing them that conservative ideas are what makes America great, and that liberal ideas keep people dependent and diminish America.

Rush went on to explain that the guy's desire for compromise isn't not only impractical, it's unthinkable because – "you can't compromise on principles."

Then El Rushbo did something really cruel to dramatize his point and to get the caller to lock in on the point; Limbaugh asked the man what he stood for?

"How do you mean that.:" and "Give me an example" were just two of his questions. Even after Limbaugh explained that people have certain things they believe in, Mr. Moderate couldn't come up with a single thing.

So Rush still has a long, uphill battle ahead…

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.

    Good tactic to use anytime someone starts to make statements about "getting along" or whatever. It's just relativism.

    I think "moderate" can be a catch-all term for a lot of different kinds of people. I've know moderates like this caller – apathetic, apolitical, not really much of a thinker. But I've also known moderates, or centrists, that were quite principled – it's just that their principles overlapped either the traditional right or left, depending on the issue. They didn't follow a party line, but they had strong opinions about a lot of different things. "Moderate" was more of a political "average" for them.

  3. Many moderates I've known lack a philosophical basis. Meaning: Most have not studied the varied political & philosophical aspects of the argument to form a firm position. They derive their opinion many times based upon emotion.
    Emotion is fine for the uninformed, however, for those whom wish to help shape future policy ( even in the Blogosphere) a lack of a guiding principle. Thus, many in our country are very good at sounding educated on a subject but don't have a clue.
    Everyone who's truly "informed" bases their positons on a basic fundmental principle. Right or wrong!

    That is the closest realistic description ive seen yet, at least for a true Centrist. Alot of people claim to be Centrist or moderates who really dont have a clue what a centrist/moderate is. Also alot of people dislike centrists because they cant logically stick right or left lables on them then sort them into neat little political catagories.
