This is worth pulling out of the comments and front paging, folks e in md:
So...lemme see if I get this straight. I want to be sure to understand the conservative mindset for reasons already mentioned.
It's bad to consider an abortion, but it's ok to turn females into baby making machines for fun and profit.
And it's bad to think that mankind descended from primates. But we have no problem treating human females the same way we treat cows even to the point of 'calving' them.
It's bad to kill a blob of cells with little to no consciousness that even the Bible says has no worth until it's been outside it's mother for a month.
But it's good to let people like Michael J. Fox suffer from Parkinson's disease.
and it's good to keep people like Christopher Reeves confined to a wheelchair.
But it's ok, to beat, starve or smother children to death when they misbehave, because you're following the bible's 'Spare the rod' clause.
It's bad to let a brain dead woman in a persistent vegetative state die because some douchebag who fancies himself a doctor watches her for five minutes even though ten other doctors and the autopsy say she's a meat puppet and roughly as aware as the average house plant.
But it's also ok to start pre-emptive wars wherein you kill hundreds of thousands of innocent people whose only crime was being brown and having oil and thousands of other people because 'Well they're a volunteer army'.
It's also bad to have gay sex because you're going to hell.
Unless of course you're a conservative senator trolling for it in airport bathrooms or a multi-million dollar preacher paying for it along with crystal meth.
And Marriage should be denied to some people by the government because it is a sacred sacrament that shouldn't be defamed by gay people.
But conservative Senators trolling for bathroom butt sex, other Senators divorcing their wives on the cancer death bed and America's mayor using public funds to protect his mistress.... they're all just fine.
And it's bad to spend money on fixing roads and bridges,improving education, building alternative energy infrastructure and providing universal healthcare.
But it's ok to build $300 million dollar bridges in counties that only have 8000 people total and it is ok to burn $9 billion a month for a war of aggression.
It's double plus bad to question the definition of 'is' and get a blow job from an intern and lie to Congress about it. But it's just peachy keep to lie about your justification for war over 900 times in order to push an invasion.
We're also supposed to trust George W. Bush because 'He's the President'. Yet we were calling Somalia 'wagging the dog' and putting the security of the entire free world in jeopardy.
It's ok for a conservative hack to write that we shouldn't be concerned with whether or not Bill Clinton 'did it' but rather whether to impeach or assassinate him... and it's ok for that same political hack to talk about poisoning Supreme Court Justices...
But it's double plus bad ungoodthink for a someone left of center to suggest that a woman who demands other people sacrifice their children so that her son's death means something is a horrible grasping ghoul.
Leaking information to the Press about a bank tracking program that is publicly mentioned on a public internet banking website is traitorous enough to warrant criminal prosecution because Liberals and being partisan and helping Al Qaeda.
But outing Valerie Plame to discredit her husband as the only real critic of the Iraq war is just fine because destroying her career and endangering national security served the Republican party's agenda.
And saying that you don't support the President or the mission but support the troops is traitorous hypocrisy, but Newt Gingrich's affair and concealing it while he was impeaching Clinton for having an affair and concealing it is not.
That seems like a good summation. These people are dangerous, delusional, destructive and just plain evil. Wanting to turn women into baby production facilities is only one single facet of this phenomena.
