Not Every One…

You know, when it comes down to it, you really have to hand it to the Republicans.

They really know how to tweak the religious wing of their party. Running around spouting passages (even if they don’t get it quite right) from the Bible and all that.

Not everyone who saith such things has the cojones of Tom Delay. The GOP in the House of Representatives explicitly designed new ethics rules to make it harder to prosecute him for ethical violations. If ever there were anyone saying “Lord, Lord” who appeared to be a candidate for rebuke….

You read those kinds of things and then these kinds of things or these kinds of things (!!!) and you just cannot…you cannot…help but be amazed. Really. Even if you’ve seen everything.

The people of the United States of America are being ripped off in broad frickin’ daylight and there’s nary a peep.

On the one hand, as I said the other day, nothing really surprises me. But then…

I don’t know. I think I’m actually in shock.

How do they do this right under our very noses? I mean, years past, they’d have been tarred, feathered and run out of town. Today, we think they’re little incarnations of G-d on Earth.

I feel like someone who’s just witnessed a train wreck with massive fatalities…

Only the train just keeps rolling on…wreaking more havoc….

Excuse me if I appear incoherent, but — really — how do we watch this happening and not vote these people out of office?

    It’s so insane that, purely to protect our own sanity, we pretend that they’re not as insane as they act. This is an insane act on our part, but it’s not as far out there as they are…

    What shocks me the most is the fact that almost nothing shocks me anymore. I read things like the Flamingo Jones post and think “yeah, that doesn’t surprise me.” I get angry about it, but not surprised.

    I agree with Jason up there. I must be insane.

    I have to agree with both Jason and Gweny.

    I feel like I should be shocked…but yet I’m not…at the same time I’m like…what the hell is going on here!!!

    It’s like I was asleep for 4 years (although I wasn’t) and woke up to a different country.

    I can not believe how much the mindset of the country has changed soooo much in the past 4-5 years. Is homosexuality that scary?!?! Moral Values?!?!

    I’m just glad to find others out here in the blogging world who are also going, HUH, what the heck?

    Thanks for the post I didn’t even know about those things going on.
