Its easy to rattle off the names of great liberals: Jesus, Buddha, Copernicus, DaVinci, Michelangelo, Galileo, Voltaire, Locke, Jefferson, Franklin, Madison, Adams, Darwin, Dickens, Hugo, Melville, Lincoln, Twain, Picasso, Einstein, Darrow, Gandhi and Martin Luther King. And great conservatives? Hmmm. Cotton Mather and Ronald Reagan is about it I guess. Rack Jite -


I'll add these because I still find it hard to believe that somebody other then Bush can be this stupid and this evil.

I went to a conservative convention once. The drinks were watered down, and it was a cash bar. The food was terrible and there was no pepper to hide the taste. The men were rude and the women prudish. I went to take a leak and woke up three hours later, bleeding in the alley. Theyd taken every cent I had, even the change from my pocket.

I thought it was terrible that theyd rob a man that way, that they were so skilled at it. Then Mulroney got elected and it turned out that they were masters at rape and buggery too.

"The size of the lie is a definite factor in causing it to be believed, for the vast masses of the nation are in the depths of their hearts more easily deceived than they are consciously and intentionally bad. The primitive simplicity of their minds renders them a more easy prey to a big lie than a small one, for they themselves often tell little lies but would be ashamed to tell a big one."
