28. Spot on! Tough love! They thoroughly spoiled the Democrats
Edited on Mon Oct-23-06 01:55 PM by KCabotDullesMarxIII
and the people, indulging them endlessly with their tough love. Surely, the time to return that most bountiful largesse with interest is long, long overdue.

What after all are an orange jump-suit, handcuffs and leg-irons but fatherly correction and discipline. "Spare the rod and spoil the child", Scripture tells us. And how right it is. Susan McDougal and her husband, driven to suicide, were positively smothered by their tough love, weren't they?

Maybe Susan has learnt that in the neocon's Canon Law, refusing to perjure yourself when being blessed by their tough love actually IS perjuring yourself! Black is white, up is down... You know the drill.

Of course, without prejudice to their integrity, bi-partisanship must be the medium to long-term aim. Didn't Christ tell us we are to love our brothers and sisters? But he also warned that a Christian cannot treat with the Devil, with evil.
