RNC

Three thoughts on the Nuremburg Ra -- uh, the Republican National Convention:

1.) Anyone who tells you "things are simple" is trying to sell you something.


2.) When people start talking about good and evil, keep one hand on your wallet.


3.) Zell Miller is batshit insane.


That's all.

Listening to the Republican's scary babble makes me so uncomfortable I could hide under a pillow.. but what makes me *really* uncomfortable is: what if they win?!
pluff pluff ( the sound of me hiding myself under a matress for the next 4 years)

Damn STRAIGHT, Stover!

Watching the propagandist neo-Nazis makes my hair stand on end.

My mom grew up in a communist country and she turned to me and said, "I thought I risked everything to get away from this. I went in a circle." She escaped an oppressive father and poverty to come to America in the 60's.

It's funny, because if the The Emptyheaded Fuhrer steals another election, I'm moving out of the country.

I can't stand it anymore. I can't stand seeing Chimp's vapid, uncomprehending eyes, when he says things he doesn't understand that he's been taught to read o telepromters. It makes me sick that that nincompoop, who pats himself on the back for 9-11 for some reason, thinks that the 10 million people he sent to the poor house, and the highest rate of bankruptcy in history, as some sort of an accomplishment. Those racist haters have got to go.

You know Matt says that anyone who tells you things are simpe is lying...well I have my own little version to that and it goes something like this:

Anyone who tells you someone else is stupid is lying.

C'mon get serious. You can insult a man for his shortcomings via the actions he takes, but to say that he doesn't understand what he's saying is extremely stereotypical and quite the cop out for a much needed insult, and it makes me downright sick. Bush knows what he is doing and don't ever believe that he doesn't. Now whether him knowing what he's doing is either good or bad is left up to you to decide. But to act like he's a retard and all he's doing is just moaning out sylables that just randomly pop up on a screen makes me laugh at you and also makes me feel as though it is you who is the retard.

Get some motherfucking maturity.

Is there any good to pointing out the author of the comment that said those things, wasn't Stover?

I don't know if Bush really is brilliant and has just a really, really different worldview, or if he's as dumb as a bag of hammers. He certainly seems to convey, as the anon poster said, emptyheadedness, but this is obviously opinion and may only mean he doesn't communicate well. I've never talked with the man. I can't say one way or the other.

Anyway, I'm not so afraid he's dumb: I'm afraid he really thinks he's doing good for the world. And in that, he is saying things that are wrong, and he doesn't know how wrong they are. That doesn't make him stupid, but it does make him dangerous.

I think that ties in quite nicely to that Nietzsche quote Matt posted a twee while back.

Wanna see something funny?

Something "Zell Miller" funny?

Something that Rip Taylor would take one look at, and shriek, "That's FUNNY!!"?

From the Congressional archival website http://miller.senate.gov/speeches/030101jjdinner.htm:

Introduction of Senator John Kerry

Democratic Party of Georgia's Jefferson-Jackson Dinner

Zell Miller

-- March 1, 2001


"It is good to be back in Georgia and to be with you. I have been coming to these dinners since the 1950s, and have missed very few.

"I'm proud to be Georgia's junior senator and I'm honored to serve with Max Cleland, who is as loved and respected as anyone in that body. One of our very highest priorities must be to make sure this man is re-elected in 2002 so he can continue to serve this state and nation.

"I continue to be impressed with all that Governor Barnes and Lieutenant Governor Taylor and the Speaker and the General Assembly are getting done over at the Gold Dome. Georgia is fortunate to have this kind of leadership.

"My job tonight is an easy one: to present to you one of this nation's authentic heroes, one of this party's best-known and greatest leaders -- and a good friend.

"He was once a lieutenant governor -- but he didn't stay in that office 16 years, like someone else I know. It just took two years before the people of Massachusetts moved him into the United States Senate in 1984.

"In his 16 years in the Senate, John Kerry has fought against government waste and worked hard to bring some accountability to Washington.

"Early in his Senate career in 1986, John signed on to the Gramm-Rudman-Hollings Deficit Reduction Bill, and he fought for balanced budgets before it was considered politically correct for Democrats to do so.

"John has worked to strengthen our military, reform public education, boost the economy and protect the environment. Business Week magazine named him one of the top pro-technology legislators and made him a member of its 'Digital Dozen.'

"John was re-elected in 1990 and again in 1996 -- when he defeated popular Republican Governor William Weld in the most closely watched Senate race in the country.

"John is a graduate of Yale University and was a gunboat officer in the Navy. He received a Silver Star, Bronze Star and three awards of the Purple Heart for combat duty in Vietnam. He later co-founded the Vietnam Veterans of America.

"He is married to Teresa Heinz and they have two daughters.

"As many of you know, I have great affection -- some might say an obsession -- for my two Labrador retrievers, Gus and Woodrow. It turns out John is a fellow dog lover, too, and he better be. His German Shepherd, Kim, is about to have puppies. And I just want him to know...Gus and Woodrow had nothing to do with that.

"Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome Senator John Kerry."

LOVED the part about Max Cleland...
