Republicans have lost their bearings

Just take a look at this pathetic crew and ask yourself if this is really the best the Republicans can come up with? We have never called ourselves Republicans but, will admit, we did identify with them a little more closely during the Clinton years. Although, let's be perfectly clear on this, we have never voted for one for President since Ronald Regan. In other words, we have never cast a ballot for a Bush! And, if you think that means we voted for Clinton, think again. We were forced to vote independent those years.


We are working hard to see Barack Obama becomes the next President and believe he will beat Bush's love monkey by a landslide. One of our weird South Austin friends sent an email today that we thought was hilarious but, right on target. Don't worry, he takes "weird" as a compliment just like we do. Anyway, here is a reprint of "A GUIDE TO REPUBLICAN PRINCIPALS" by anonymous:

Jesus loves you, and shares your hatred of homosexuals and Hillary Clinton.

Saddam was a good guy when Reagan armed him, a bad guy when Bush's daddy made war on him, a good guy when Cheney then did business with him, and a bad guy when Bush needed a "we can't find bin Laden"diversion.

Trade with Cuba is wrong because the country is Communist, but trade with China and Vietnam is vital to a spirit of international harmony.

The United States should get out of the United Nations, and our highest national priority is enforcing UN resolutions against Iraq.

The best way to improve military morale is to praise the troops in speeches, while slashing veterans' benefits and combat pay.

If condoms are kept out of schools, adolescents won't have sex.

A good way to fight terrorism is to belittle our long-time allies, then demand their cooperation and money.

Providing health care to all Iraqis is sound policy, but providing health care to all Americans is socialism. HMOs and insurance companies have the best interests of the public at heart.

Global warming and tobacco's links to cancer are junk science, but creationism should be taught in schools.

A president lying about an extramarital affair is an impeachable offense, but a president lying to enlist support for a war in which thousands die is solid defense policy.

Government should limit itself to the powers named in the Constitution, which include banning gay marriages and censoring the Internet.

Being a drug addict is a moral failing and a crime, unless you're a conservative radio host. Then it's an illness and you need our prayers for your recovery.

If you got the email too, you can see we edited down the list simply in an effort to be fair to the Republicans. We just left the ones in that were not even debatable.
