When I hear people like Rush Limbaugh and Newt Gingrich accuse Judge Sotomayor of “reverse racism”, why do I think they mean “racism” other than the way they want it?
When I hear “Right to Life” people celebrating the murder of a doctor in his church, why do I think they mean the right to take someone else’s life?
When I hear Republicans talk about a “Big Tent”, why do I think they mean the tent they want middle-class families to live in after losing their homes to foreclosures?
When I hear Republicans use the term “National Security”, why do I anticipate hearing something about why we should be afraid?
When I hear Republicans talk about “Judicial Activists”, why do I think of the “Bush v. Gore” Supreme Court decision?
When I hear Republicans talk about gay marriage as a threat to the “institution” of marriage, why do I think about Republicans voting against medical insurance for children and getting arrested in a public restroom soliciting gay sex?
Sure, I’m picking on Republicans – its fun to insult the falsely self-righteous, religious “Conservatives” who “hate their next-door neighbor, but don’t forget to say grace”. But the Dems have their greatest hits too. The Dems have their own particular strain of hypocrisy. It is not usually dressed in religious rhetoric. It’s usually related to being cowardly and compliant in the face of GOP nonsense. Take the Torture issue and Truth Commission as examples… or the Patriot Act or the FISA Act as others…
…Dick Cheney allegedly supports gay marriage (saying that everyone should experience “enhanced relationship techniques”). Yeah, right.
