Quotes for the day -- what politics has come to

"I am not a crook." -- Richard Nixon

"I am not a witch." -- Christine O'Donnell

"I am not a homophobic." -- Carl Paladino

[Juxtaposition thanks to Progressive Eruptions.]

"It is the centralization and abuse of power by the authoritarian right which defines the viewpoint of many liberals. While there is some diversity among its ranks, the Tea Party is dominated by social conservatives who see imposing their religious views upon the nation as a proper role of government. Their view that we were established as a Christian nation is contrary to the view of the Founding Fathers who created a secular government. When conservatives speak of freedom, they are speaking like the Confederate slave owners who fought for their freedom to own slaves. To conservatives, freedom means the freedom to impose their views upon others. You cannot claim to support a limited government when you support a government which restricts the rights of a woman to control her own body, restricts scientific research such as on embryonic stem cells, or intrudes upon end of life decisions....." -- Liberal Values

"Treat your voting booth like a car. Put it in D, not R, unless you want to go backwards." -- Politics Plus

Actually, they (the TP) are all of the above and much, much more. I just hope that most Americans are smart enough to see through them.

Great post, my friend. Love the comparison of the right wing to slave owners. As long as you believe what they believe, you have the freedom to believe it...hypocrisy at its finest. The clip this week of O'Donnell not getting that the establishment clause separates church and state, and actually thinking she'd thrown a real zinger there, just drives home the kind of ignorance behind the GOP's manipulation of the truth.
Well-said, my friend. Well done.
