Making Conservatives Cringe Since 1977
I'm not Liberal, I'm paying attention.

Has the dim bulb finally seen the light?
In the wake of Der Preznit's nomination of Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court a firestorm of criticism has erupted. What is atypical is the direction from which this criticism has originated from. Rush Limbaugh, Michelle Malkin, and Ann Coulter have all come out questioning the nomination in varying degrees. While Mark from Liberty Just in Case, and Beth from My Vast Right Wing Conspiracy have done their best to toe the Bush Junta's line, it looks like a losing battle against the very monsters that those of their ilk have created. Speaking of themes of mainstream vs extreme:
President Discusses War on Terror at National Endowment for Democracy
Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center
By fearing freedom -- by distrusting human creativity, and punishing change, and limiting the contributions of half the population -- this ideology undermines the very qualities that make human progress possible, and human societies successful. The only thing modern about the militants' vision is the weapons they want to use against us. The rest of their grim vision is defined by a warped image of the past -- a declaration of war on the idea of progress, itself. And whatever lies ahead in the war against this ideology, the outcome is not in doubt: Those who despise freedom and progress have condemned themselves to isolation, decline, and collapse. He was talking about Conservatives, right (wink)? Does sound like a good description of the extremists among us.
