    is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

    A brief history of the chats I've had with my conservative friends since Bush was elected.

    - If you thought the economy was good under Clinton, wait until you see it under a republican

    - Bush is gonna save Social security

    - Bush is gonna save education with no child left behind

    9/11

    - Bush is a great man. He's our leader and he's gonna get Osama Dead or Alive.

    - Iraq has WMDs and if we don't go in now, the next thing will be a mushroom cloud.

    - Iraq is the closest member of the Axis of Evil to having nucs, and that's why we've got to go into Iraq first.

    - We will be greeted as liberators.

    2004 election

    - Kerry will ruin the economy.

    - Kerry will make terrorism go up

    Post 2004

    - Bush is the best president ever

    - (they were strangely silent on Katrina and Bush for some reason)

    - Our economy is sound

    And now, despite these issues and MANY, MANY others, they want to elect a man who voted with Bush over 90% of the time, and return a party to power that has overseen the destruction of our liberties, our economy, and our constitution (among many other things).

    Amazing but true, I was baffled over Bush Jr, McCain / Palin are potentially worse, that America has to live through and survive these fools and their stupidity challenges the foundations of credibility.

    They are good at this spin crap.

    What would be happening right now if we were at the end of 8 years of Dem rule and the economy was in the crap pile?

    They would have impeached the Dem president. But no, today they are blaming the dems for this mess.

    6 years the lemmings crawled up Bush'sButt and approved everything. Now since 2006, they have used more filibusters in less than two years than the Dems did for six.

    I have met and worked for the Sarah's of this world. Bully, dictator, not that well read, but loves to be seen and heard. If McCain were to die or become unable to fill the office, she would be a disaster that would come close to destroying this country.

    Hell, they tried to impeach the president for getting a bj, they may have sanctioned assassination if a (D) president manipulated intelligence to promote a war agenda and sent this country into the greatest economic disaster since the depression.

    Hopefully that group of conservatives is moving into its final years. I don't mind reasonable conservatives, with which I can agree to disagree, but this latest breed over the past few years makes me have flashes of something sinister happening. Consider this quote:
    This was stated by Hermann Göring., one of the leaders of the Nazi party. Twisted though they were, they seemed to understand something about the masses. And it is almost as if these techniques became like "The Art of War" for political strategists in the new right.

    I suppose screwing up a one line post is also a good sign.

    Though not quite as telling as ignoring the content of an entire post...

    the 'lamed assed' cliche is an Einstein quote, btw.

    You could argue the insanity thing for electing both Democrats and Republicans since 1860, especially now considering that there's very little difference between the two.
