"That bitch last night!" Repub coworkers in a tizzy
We already had a knock down, drag out this morning. You see, Democrats are dividers and attack this president. In otherwords, we should all just be "Americans" and I guess that means by supporting our president. Nevermind that I reminded them that the Repubs have controlled all branches of govt. for six years - so how could Democratic "attacks" really work when we've been in the minority?

Well, one was talking about that "bitch" and how divisive she would be. I said, "Oh, you must mean Nancy Pelosi." I knew this because she was interviewed recently. Of course, she will be divisive to our holy president who needs only support. My friend also was probably intimated by the fact that Pelosi is a strong woman.

My friends mentioned, "James, all we hear is you bad mouthing Bush. You need to be more open-minded to all ideas. We're all Americans."

When I said something like, "I wish I would have heard something like that in the 90's when Clinton was president." Of course, Clinton was immoral. Immoral, ah, so lying to get us to go to war is moral? Ah, faulty intelligence they say. So, it's okay to not support a president who gets a blow job, but it's un-American to criticize Bush. They certainly have short memories.

Honestly, I think they're afraid. They believe that Bush has been mercilessly attacked the last 6 years (I know, unbelievable). They ain't seen nothing yet.

1. "Open to ideas?"
Like Torture, Like Destroying the Rule of Law and Habeus Corbus? Like Spreading Anarchy and destruction throughout the Middle East? Like Looting the Federal Treasury? Please, ask them what "ideas" you should be open to!

2. I just love the "open minded" comments I hear.

The latest Republican mantra is that Democrats have to be more "open minded". OMG! It just gets more and more surreal.

3. And I agree that someone who has to work with that crowd probably has
to listen to their crap, but other than them, who would give a shit what a pea brain thinks unless it might be a brain surgeon, or a person who studies brain activity or lack thereof.

4. I'm not open to contemplating the legalization of Torture
Not for a second. Not for a millisecond.

No sane/civilized person ever should be and if you do, don't expect to wear a 'good guy' label among sane/civilized societies.

6. This gives me an idea
Next time someone says "Clinton weakened the military" or "let OBL go," I'll come back with: "Yeah, when you don't have support from your own Congress and almost half your people, you can't do much as Commander-in-Chief. But what's Bush's excuse?"

7. Bush was mercilessly attacked? By who?
Jesus Friggin' Christ on a cracker this mother fucker has had nothing but a rubber stamp congress and hand picked supreme court for the last six years. The only thing that spoiled little shit didn't get his filthy paws on was our social security money, and believe me, if we don't take back at least one branch in november, they are gonna try and swipe that again as well.

:argh: FUUUUUUUCK!!!! :argh:

That pisses me off almost as much as these religious right fucktards complaining that christians in the united states are being constantly persecuted.

8. The thought that a woman might be third in line for the presidency has
all the small packages in testosterone overdrive.

9. My workplace freepers...
are amazingly meek right now. I make anti-Bush, anti-war comments and they just sit there without saying much. On occasion they may try to criticize Clinton, but I usually knock 'em back down.

11. It is Very Obvious
When you can't defend yourself, you attack. If one person says to me, "Clinton yada yada yada. My response will be "defend yourself--stop attacking." Believe me that will help shut them up! r else I say, "well, let's talk when Hillary is president."

15. If you really want to piss him off...
Wait until 2009, when we have a Democratic President, and tell him he should be an American and stop spreading division.

17. I am open-minded
But not so open-minded that my brain falls out.

Because thinking that Bush's "plan" for winning in Iraq might work is equivalent to saying that the toddler jabbing a fork into an electrical outlet might have a positive outcome. Now, it's true that in the universe of all possible outcomes, I cannot categorically rule out that should Junior make a connection with the fork in the outlet, he might poop out a pill that cures cancer. But far more likely is the little pischer is going to get shot eight feet across the room, and the biggest worry will be whether he's still breathing when he stops smoking. But the Freeperati would have you believe that the remote possibility of that cancer-curing pill is worth it to let Little Marblehead keep poking the outlet. Sane people would take the fork away from kid, re-direct his attention, and cover the outlet with a plastic cap.

20. An "open mind" is one that...
...pans for gold and discards the gravel.

It is NOT a lint trap, to catch every fuzzy notion that passes by.

21. It's not just that they feel Bush has been mercilessly attacked
it's also that they feel any attacks on Bush are completely unjustified. They've drunk the koolaid to the point they can't step out of their emotions and look at both sides objectively.
