    Pretty good summary.

    You Must Be a Liberal If...
    By Dave Weinbaum

    I must admit, I’ve been surprised by the amount of vitriol coming from supposedly intelligent rational people when it comes to what they believe about our world and how we should live and govern.

    They seethe when talking about President George W. Bush. Their hate for him is inexplicable.

    Those people are known as Liberals, or as some refer to themselves,
    “Progressives.”

    Below are traits of the above. You can believe in one or two, but if you identify with 3 or more you get the Liberal medal around your neck or as I look at it, the albatross.

    You must be a liberal:

    If you voted for the Iraq war when it was the popular thing to do, then claim you were hypnotized by Bush’s “lies” when it became unpopular.

    If you say Bush is “dumb” even after he beat you in two elections you were positive you would win.

    If you believe your Democrat controlled congress should spend it’s time
    investigating and impeaching the president in wartime even though there’s no
    evidence of any crimes.

    If you hate Dubya more than you love America.

    If your idea of free speech is to shut down talk radio.

    If you don’t want profiling for terrorists even though evidence is overwhelming that most are Middle Easterners.

    If you think personal attacks will ingratiate you to the voters.

    If you think the war on terror has nothing to do with the war in Iraq.

    If you think that more than ½ of the country is brain dead because they aren’t in lockstep with everything you’re sure is right.

    If you’re for abortion but against the death penalty.

    If you voted for General Patraeus and the surge, then call it a failure well before he had the troops needed to perform it.

    If you think capitalism should be replaced by Socialism, despite hundreds of
    years of evidence that our economy is number 1 in the world.

    If you think we have to dumb down our economy because of the man-made global warming scam.

    If you think it’s our fault terrorists attacked us.

    If you think everything will be “hunky dory” if we just talk to the terrorists.

    If you think the war on terror is just a bumper sticker.

    If you like higher taxes, when all evidence shows that lower taxes
    benefits everyone.

    If you think all American corporations are evil.

    If you think government can end poverty.

    If you think you can’t have a view about foreign policy if you haven’t served in the military…that is…unless its’ your opinion.

    If you believe there is no liberal bias in the media.

    If you believe there’s a vast right-wing conspiracy.

    If you believe George Bush had the levies blown up in New Orleans.

    If you equate Republicans with Nazis.

    If you believe Bill Clinton was impeached for covering up sex.

    And finally, you’re stunned and dismayed that fellow Liberals, Michael E.
    O’Hanlon and Kenneth M. Pollack, are claiming they see success in Iraq , via their article entitled “A War We Just Might Win.”

    Its just comical rhertoric designed to get a laugh. Though its not very funny because that really is the closed minded view that conservatives have of all liberals no matter how far left they are.

    Most of this is bullshit as well, not a shred of something that resembles a fact.

    Not to mention its Dave Weinbaum, he carries about as much political weight as RSR. Paris Hilton is taken more serious than this guy.

    Unlike the closed minded drivel Liberals spout about mindless republican conservative drones? It is not conservatives that claim liberals are some how less intelligent genetically then Conservatives. It is not Conservatives that coined the term " fly over" country. And the list is endless. But do enlighten us morons and inbred mongoloids that are keeping you out of power.

    It's not even funny. It is devoid of wit. It dribbles.

    I think your getting a bit out of context here. Those claims you made are not backed up by proof, they are just your opinions of what is going on in the minds of so called stereotypical "liberals". I certainly did not coin that term, I have never even heard that term. I never claimed conservatives are less intelligent than liberals, though I do claim that anyone who believes the earth is 6,000 years old, is less intelligent than me. That may not apply to you or all conservatives, it does'nt have to.

    Inbred? I dont know where you got that, inbreeding is usually something that happens in the very rural south and if inbreeding is going on....we dont have to worry about them having anything to say politically. Those people usually dont vote, statistically that is.


    Something that conservatives did coin though is "cut and run"....."anti-americans"...."elitists"...."spineless party"......"Secularists" ....."stay the course"....."war on terrorism"....."axis of evil"......And the list goes on and on. One liners are not a subject that republicans should bring up.

    Jerry fallwell, political/christian leader and supporter of the conservative christian movement.

    "The idea that religion and politics don't mix was invented by the Devil to keep Christians from running their own country."

    "AIDS is the wrath of a just God against homosexuals. To oppose it would be like an Israelite jumping in the Red Sea to save one of Pharaoh's charioteers ... AIDS is not just God's punishment for homosexuals; it is God's punishment for the society that tolerates homosexuals."

    "Billy Graham is the chief servant of Satan in America."

    I dont know any liberal, who is as off the reservation as people like this. And jerry is not the only one.
