Why Conservatives are like spoiled children.
You have seen them – the spoiled brat that makes a scene in the Mall or Shopping centre, or candy shop. They cry and kick their feet and yell that you don’t love them – until you give them their way, then they smile and realised that the tantrum worked and all is well in their world but you can see the patent is both embarrassed and – more so, exhausted.
Liberals are far from intolerant – but what liberals do do is see the world for what it is and act accordingly.
That is why this piece caught my eye today – written by a spoon-fed Conservative, well waddya-know!
I don’t like conservatives – I never have, they are just a set of people who are stick-in-the-mud and wail like a banshee if something goes wrong.
Navarrette explains why everyone should leave poor Palin and Sam the not-licensed plumber alone. Not thinking that it was, as always, conservative stupidity that put them in the lime-light. Now, if Ruben had ripped McCain and the GOP a new one for putting these people up for ridicule I could support him – but no, it is a matter that it is liberal intolerance not leaving them alone. Whining bastard!
SAN DIEGO, California (CNN) — I thought liberals were supposed to be good-hearted, open-minded and non-judgmental.
Tell that to the angry Left’s favorite piñata, Sarah Palin. As far as liberals are concerned, Palin can do no right just as Barack Obama and Joe Biden can do no wrong.
Joe Biden caught a lot of flak for his recent foot-in-mouth remark, but no – that is over-looked by the conservatives, it wasn’t a sustained 365 day tirade and the ‘liberal’ press didn’t say “OK- now vote for McCain because he made a gaffe!” That is what they want – but the constant thing in all this is that Joe drops a bollock every now and again, then you have McCain preaching about Joe the Plumber and Palin not knowing where she left her red high-heels bought by the GOP.
People like Ruben over-look these things – and he cannot see why this is ridiculous. You, Ruben, want an idiot as the vice-president of the USA. That is not just intolerable but insane!
We now know that Samuel Joe Wurzelbacher owes back taxes, doesn’t have a plumbing license (he told the Associated Press he doesn’t need one because he works for someone else’s company), and may not be registered to vote.
And you can’t see why this is, well, a little bit silly, Ruben? It doesn’t matter who he told, the fact is his question would have held more water if he had had those things – then there would have been a press questioning the situation and even better if the guy hadn’t been speaking to Obama for a good five minutes about that tax policy. Even more – and why your piece is GOP propaganda, you are using a tiny segment of the conversation – not the whole thing!
Even Biden and Obama got in a few licks. Biden quipped to Jay Leno that Democrats wanted to take care of “Joe-the-real-plumber-with-a-license,” and Obama sarcastically asked supporters, “how many plumbers do you know making $250,000 a year?” The implication being that Joe the Plumber isn’t who he pretends to be.
If you earn under $250,000 you get a tax cut under Obama’s plan – so Joe would be better off voting for Obama – what the hell is wrong in that!? Ask Joe’s boss if he knew that Joe was going to buy his business, that would be a tale worth telling.
The latest media template is that the vice presidential nominee is a drag on the GOP ticket. Pundits detect a backlash, not just among Democrats who love to hate Sarah Palin but also among women, independents and seniors. They cite polls showing Palin with an unfavorable rating of 50 percent.
So what? We’re in the post-Clinton, post-Bush era of polarization where any politician with a pulse — Sorry, Joe Biden — will be loved by half the country and hated by the other half.
It’s surreal. Before McCain put Palin on the ticket, he was getting 200 people at campaign rallies, and now, when he appears when Palin, he gets 20,000. Yes, definitely a drag.
I would suggest that if Palin dropped off the ticket as some Conservatives have said, there would be a boost to John McCain’s numbers – as I have blogged about before, Palin is now an opening book and people are seeing her for who she is. Corrupt may be too strong a word for her but she was in Alaska in a cocoon she could do nothing wrong. Now she is in the national spotlight and is getting the vetting that John McCain should have done. Whose fault is that? John McCain, the GOP and Sarah Palin. Not liberals, and certainly not the ‘liberal’ press! Look to the Conservative press who have bailed ship in favour of Obama – you think that is just because the Democrat’s attack Palin?
Still, we’re told, this tempest in a Gucci bag has some Republicans worrying that shopping sprees at Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue might undermine Palin’s everywoman image. To think, just last month, the criticism was that Sarah the Moose Hunter wasn’t sufficiently sophisticated or glamorous.
Who said that? The Republicans? As I read it they are pissed! And justifiably so. The Republican armchair dream that they had a mum who could relate to the essence of US society is now a joke – not propagated by the Democrat’s – but by those who would have supported her. She is a governor of a US State and the ordinary Joe (no pun intended) expect a little something from their elected officials – and one of those things is that she buy her own clothes and not get a $150,000 hand-out to look good!
Just how many more caricatures — some of them contradictory — can we expect the left to throw at Sarah Palin before time runs out on this election?
Believe me – not as many as the Conservatives will do. I will read your commentary, Ruben, if the GOP ticket should lose – I will wait with bated breath for your summery as to why McCain/Palin lost.
And I don’t expect it to be pretty.
