Prepare for season of fear and loathing - by Shannyn Moore at the Anchorage Daily News

Shannyn has knocked it out of the park with this column. Please share with your conservative friends.

Well, the tenor and tempo of fear and loathing on the campaign trail is ramping up. I know it's going to get worse before it gets better because no one likes Mitt Romney. There's only so much fertilizer available but plenty of money to spread it around.

<snip>

If you listen to right-wingers, liberals, leftists and Democrats want to march in Socialism, Communism and Marxism at the same time, steal from the rich and give to the lazy, melt down your guns and cast a statue of Jane Fonda, denounce the baby Jesus in the manger, destroy straight marriage with gay weddings and eat birth control pills like Tic Tacs and carry an abortion punch card.

<snip>

Before you say, "Both sides are guilty," just stop. No, they aren't. One side is trying to make it harder for people to vote with a conspiracy theory called voter fraud. More people were killed by televisions dropped on their heads than pretended to be someone else at the polls.

One side thinks their Second Amendment rights trump other people's right to not get shot while watching a movie or going to church. If you bring up the same assault weapons ban (now expired) brought about by the attempted assassination of President Reagan, you hate America.

One side is fixated on the vaginas of its fellow citizens. (Venus envy?)

One side mocks climate change while we watch it happen.

One side thinks the poor are lazy couch surfers, when the working poor put in longer days than most.

One side wants to regress this country back to the good ole days of plutocracy.

Which side are you on?

4. Yeah, she's great.

I'm glad I know her. She's an excellent counterbalance to the Palin/Parnell/Miller types around here.
