Conservative Tripe

Your brain on conservatism

Someone gave a Conservative named Matthew Kaminski a early holiday gift, apparently a box of crayons, which he used to scrawl this incoherent diatribe in the few minutes he had before the attendants noticed he got a hand free from his straight jacket, You Like Us! But Not For Long.

The past few years for sure were especially happy ones for the flag burners, intellectual bomb throwers and suicide attackers. George W. Bush gave this crowd a great excuse to hate America–and the Democrats a highly effective partisan political weapon against the ruling party.

You could diagram every sentence in this paragraph. Send it off to a team of brilliant of cryptographers and still not extract a rational thought. Its the usual right-wing drool mixed with arterial fix of rabid nationalism. A code of sorts meant for his fellow kool-aid drinkers. No surprise that he drags in the French. They’re always good for a bash. Then goes on to praise our allies. Yes, our NATO allies, like France, who contributed forces to Afghanistan where at last count 26 French soldiers have given their lives in a country where we succeeded and the old the Soviet Union failed; then squandered that victory to rush troops to the quagmire on the Mesopotamia. Forget all the other  malicious blundering that  has defined Conservative policies the last eight years – Afghanistan and Osama Been Forgotten is reason enough to give Bush a one way ticket to Elba. WhiskeyFire writes a very short letter to Monsieur Kaminsky about that “ontological” tripe.

Generals Propose a Timetable for Iraq

A new military plan for troop withdrawals from Iraq that was described in broad terms this week to President-elect Barack Obama falls short of the 16-month timetable Mr. Obama outlined during his election campaign, United States military officials said Wednesday.

I could be wrong from looking at it this way, but if timetables are being discussed now – pre-inaugeration, that’s a good sign. Plans are being made for a majot draw down of troops, the major remaining issue is timing.

Sean Hannity: Media Matters’ 2008 Misinformer of the Year. Not to be a concern troll, but Sean might want to consider changing his shade of lip gloss. He looks like a revieved corpse on camera. Then again, maybe that’s just how he looks. If so my apologies for making fun of his physical defects.

Hannity’s “Stop Obama Express” promoted and embellished a vast array of misleading attacks and false claims about Obama. Along the way, he uncritically adopted and promoted countless Republican talking points and played host to numerous credibility-challenged smear artists who painted Obama as a dangerous radical. When he was not going after Obama, Hannity attacked members of Obama’s family, as well as Sen. Hillary Clinton and other progressives, and denied all the while that he had unfairly attacked anyone.

U.S. sends three Guantanamo men home to Bosnia – shocking, according to Bush and his supporters everyone at Gitmo was guilty, otherwise they wouldn’t have been put there in the first place.

The three were among five Algerians ordered released last month by a U.S. judge who ruled that the Bush administration had failed to support its claim that they planned to travel to Afghanistan to fight U.S. forces in 2001.
