The Bush Apologist Survival Guide
Edited on Mon Feb-16-04 01:29 PM by Homer12
- If the evidence against Bush and his administration is strong, blame Bill Clinton for Bushco's mistakes as well as his mistakes when he was in office.

- Shout-Down, insult, tease, make-fun of, and threaten anybody who disagrees with the right or Bushco

- Stamp the label "traitor" on anybody whom does not agree with Bush.

- Hypocrisy is only a trait of the "left", God has approved that the "right" are never hypocrites, the ends-always-justify-the-means.

Du'ers please add more to the list.

1. More GOP Rules
When the issues are against you, argue that character matters.

When character is against you, argue that the issues are most important.

When character and the issues are against you, sling mud.

3. Volume is everything
-The loudest argument is the right one.

-If you can't talk over them, then cut their mic.

-Never Never Never agree to appear on their home turf- but ridicule them if they don't appear on yours.

4. More - -
- If you don't like what a lefty says, and you can't refute it, ignore it.

- If you don't like what a lefty says, and you can't refute it, make a personal comment about the lefty and flat out deny that your comment is personal.

- If you don't like what a lefty says, and you can't refute it, tell the lefty to prove it, and if the lefy cites proof, simply deny that what they say is any proof of anything.

- If a lefty gets disgusted with you for employing these strategies, and the lefty doesn't want to talk to you because you are so obnoxious, declare yourself the winner.

5. A few more

- Rush said it was true

- I read it on the "Drudge Report", so it must be true

- ...Ann Coulter is hot (I understand lieing to one-self so as not to deal with uncomferatable truths about Bush and your philosiphy, but this is truely sick!)

- If blaming Bill CLinton does not work, procceed to Hillary Clinton. If Hillary does not work, pass go to Tom Daschle...if none of these work label the left as traitors.

8. A few of my own
- It is acceptable to pop pills like they are pez if you are a conservative talk radio host or Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.

- The GOP is never wrong.

- If the GOP is wrong, it is because the liberal media took the comments grossly out of context.

- If they disagree on the Middle East, they are anti-Semites.

- Affirmative Action is racist, but supporting Strom Thurmond's segregation platform is not.

- Matt Drudge inventing an affair is good journalism, but calling attention to a massive cover-up of draft evasion is a smear tactic

9. what to do in case of emergency
In the event of dissent over tax cuts, create a smokescreen of confusing statistcs.

In the event of dissent over the Iraq war, arrest the protesters, label them terrorists, and send them to Gitmo, where they will never be seen again.

Above all, remember that it is not YOUR golf buddies and CEO chums who are doing the grunt work of the Iraq war. :)

10. Establish 'Free Speech Zones' where those nasty protesters
can exercise their constitutional rights (yeah whatever...) without making you see them or hear them or acknowledge them or think about them or the issues about which they are concerned...
Just hide your head in the sand.

11. What about the lesson of Khrushev pounding his shoe on the table. . .
at the U.N. and walking out. The U.N. then resolved to engage in the Korean War.

The Soviets never did that again.

I'm not suggesting that we're the Soviets (as I'm sure I would righties would accuse of suggesting). I'm suggesting the lesson, that one who espouses a point of view should never just walk away and hide their heads in the sand.

Stand up. Be heard. Make your point and keep making it.

13. If the country finds out you lied about WMDs...
pray that a breast is exposed during live family programing.
