= "nigger lover"

Remember when that nasty little phrase fell out of favor and they needed a replacement? Go down south and hear the word "liberal" used, and if you were around 30-40 years ago then you know exactly what they mean when they use the word "liberal."

29. Junk science, compassion, personal responsibility, judicial activism
Junk science: Any science that they don't agree with.

Compassion: Feigning sorrow over a problem or situation that they have no intention of doing anything about.

Personal Responsibility: No welfare. It does not mean admitting mistakes--for them.

Judicial activism: Any court decision that they don't agree with.

Conservative: No welfare, covert racism, religious fanaticism, corporatism, militarism, and never having to say you're sorry.

69. playing politics - not agreeing. Parisan politics - two-party system
9-11 changed everything - don't look at my record

stay the course - we've already gone off the cliff

whatever it takes - Abu Ghraib

mission accomplished - the Iraqi people appointed me their leader and told them to surrender.

it's hard work - we f'ed up big time, but don't hold me accountable

We'er moving/looking forward - don't look at my record

I'm a uniter not a divider - I'm the most partisan bastard imaginable

I wanna practice my love - I'm a sociopath, but maybe you won't notice if I talk this psuedo-christian crap

And when asked at the first debate: Mr. President (sic), Does the Iraq experience make it more likely or less likely that you would take the United States into another preemptive military action?

BUSH: ...So to answer your question, I would hope we'd never have to. I think by acting firmly and decisively, it will mean it's less likely to -- less likely we have to use force.

That mean, "If you stupid shits let me stay in office, I'm going to invade Iran and North Korea and start a nukular war."

On edit:

87. code words -- trying to simplify the complex
I dont think its quite that easy to translate code terms into pre-concieved notions. People can honestly have different ideas of what terms mean.

89. ding ding ding ding ding ding!
YES! You are correct! The very reason that these phrases are repeated over and over and over and over and are so "popular" is because they are multivalent.

For example -- say "justice" to a liberal, and think "a fair shake for all." Say "justice" to one of them, and they're thinking of locking you up or frying your ass.

This is why they use code words to begin with, amigo! They sound "reasonable" to sane people, but are well known "wink wink nudge nudge" issues with his wacko base.

97. "Terrorist"
Edited on Fri Oct-08-04 02:12 AM by antiwarwarrior
A Muslim, primarily one of middle eastern descent, with little or no distinction towards political beliefs. Alternately, could be used to describe a Democrat that says something that is particularly opposed to the Republican ideology. (see: Kennedy, Ted)

"The enemy": Democrats

"campaign finance reform": Establishing corporate control over the elections process.

114. Anybody notice their constant use of the word "clear"
They arent giving it any new meaning, but I'm sure its on "Newts 2004 List Of Positive Words To Be Used When Discussing the Bush Administation"

Sounds so rock solid. So decisive. You'd be an idiot not to see it.

During the Clinton Witch Hunts they always used the phrase "at the end of the day", for pretty much the same purpose.

120. Actually It's "Not Fringe Right"
The people who say "out of the mainstream" are FAR, FAR, FAR from the mainstream themselves. It's actually a case of projection. They can't get americans to agree with their lunatic fringe agenda, so they accuse the other side of being out of the mainstream. Pot calling the kettle black!
