Better yet, the conservative cry to “Keep your government hands off my Medicare.” Now THERE’S credibility.
Larry is one of the new easy believers. Since none of this came up until we actually elected a black president, credibility is very very lacking. There are other places thwat have enacted similar social policies, but sad Kitty is so insistent, despite the fact that gun laws are being relaxed. The cries of tyranny and totalitarianism are as silly and baseless as conservatives screaming both socialism AND fascism, knowing really nothing about either. Obama isn't even a lefty. Kitty and Larry are the true problem, and I'm betting she cites the slave-owning, non-populist founding fathers whenever possible
John W and MSO have further trivialized the issue by portraying Taryn’s father as a victim (quite a stretch, but hardly a surprise) and by suggesting Taryn only wanted to stick it to her old man and “was manipulated.” (not a surprise). Poor girl had no idea what she was doing, being under the sway of the relentless progressive agenda. Nonsense. This is not Oprah or the Today Show where anyone and everyone with a TV now feels qualified to analyze psychological motives or to project “regret” in her future using her father’s tactics in his dire consequences fiction. Taryn’s father does not get the leeway he thinks he does, being a defender of morality, women and children. He has shown his standards and shallow manipulative character over and over and it is not to be admired. Taryn CHOSE to speak and in doing so, exercised her perfect right to stand up for herself and those who feel as she does, and to make it clear that just because her father presumes to speak for many, he does not speak for her. Nash doesn’t have to automatically mean something negative and bigoted. Avoiding the issue of character allows for these trivializing comments, but it also puts them into the sad shallow end of the pool with Taryn’s father.
Taryn rocks. Her father has long since given up any entitlement to respect. If he showed other people, issues, or the public forum any respect in his outpourings, maybe he would deserve some in return. But he’s grossly stereotyped gay lesbian and transgendered people, he’s reduced a legitimate issue to the lowest level of fear-mongering and chicken-little fiction, and he reduces public discourse to baiting, lying and ignorance. The most cynical, soul-less appeal is to the protection of our women and children. If I was so little deserving of respect and made a loud public show of it, MY daughter would be perfectly justified in calling me out in public,
Wow, Chick actually proves something not brought up enough, that seeing things only as you expect to see them -- conservatives ranting about liberal bias and hatred of disagreement when none actually exists -- is very much the same kind of logic as alcoholics and people experiencing psychotic breaks. No information that doesn't fit into to an already set in stone set of facts and arguments have any effect. I'm not sure which one of these applies most to Glen Beck, but the logic is definitely not connected to actual life.
