Oh mah babies, it's good to be back. Did you miss me? No?! Whatev. All I know is blogging about treacherous, back-stabbing, head-banging, freedom-stealing, hurl-inducing politics is waaaay easier than dealing with leaky eye-juice and the aftermath of needles poked in one's eye.
So what happened while I was gone? Did everyone play nice? Of course not. Let's get on with it, shall we?
I see that those who fear the Tea Party have offered their best shot at a new derisive name: Tea Klanners. Tsk, all that edumacation and this is what they offer. Pumpkins.
Here's a story about an actual Klan get-together and well gosh, you just didn't hear so much about that as you did the Tea Party rallies, did ya? Gotta ask yourself why. While the Klan is a fringe group that stands for despicable values, they are easily contained and not a threat to much. They appeal to very few. Yet, the Tea Party movement is shaking Washington to its core, is shaping politics and politicians and is a threat to the left's very existence. Tea Party folks are educated and well-informed; they are NOT fringe. Tea Party folks are coming for Washington's jobs and they aren't drawing party lines, they are drawing lines based on how well folks are doing their jobs related to Constitutional values. Simple and frightening to the left.
The left is shouting about the danger of Tea Party mentality (Clinton's recent veiled remarks included), shouting about the rampant racism of Tea Party members, shouting about the despicable actions (freedom fighting and all) and words (sure, some missplelled) of Tea Party rallies, yet somehow they fail to mention what the danger of their mentality, of their racism, of their despicable actions and words. Take a look at THIS. Any lefty in the audience want to take a swing at this. Unclench those fists lefty, a figurative swing.
What did I miss while I was gone? More of the same from the left with a bit more heat behind it. Caliente! The days, along with the change of seasons, are heating up. November is our short-term goal. We must stay focused. We must stay the course. Their melting down, name-calling tell is showing; we have the left running stoopid!
Ahhh, it's good to be home.
