Gentlemen of the court, there are times that I'm ashamed to be a member of the human race and this is one such occasion.

I'm long past being disgusted that conservatives regularly root for millions of their fellow Americans to be killed by terrorists but still remain stumped on the complete absence of logic behind this idea. Apparently the formula is something along the lines of...

Major terrorist attack while Republicans are in charge = country will turn to Republicans to protect them.

On the other hand...

Major terrorist attack while Democrats are in charge = country will turn to Republicans to protect them.

Heads they win, tails we lose.

Know what would be really funny? If such an attack occurs, but instead of killing us all, we turn into superpowered, radioactive mutants and go on a countrywide killing spree against our natural enemy, the wingnut homo sapien.

I'm telling ya, the SciFi channel would love that premise. Oh, we can fly too, but we're not as cheesy as Mansquito, we kick serious ass.

There have been so many stories with this general theme. The wingnuts just keep underlining and emphasizing that they value ideological purity over life. While not particularly affecting my general pessimism, I do have to say that I'm slowly becoming more optimistic that the general population is not sheep-like enough to buy into this attitude... that in the long term, people will look for feasible, pragmatic answers, rather than clinging to absurd ideological "truths."

If a political party set out to commit suicide, I don't think it could devise a more effective method than the repubs have followed.

They're just desperate, pure and simple.

I think that the Republicans policies on national defense are at least as good as their policies on the economy. ;o)

He's only doing it for our own good.

Bin Laden actually LOVES America.

I learn something new every day.
