    Hahaha! See, it’s funny because it’s liberals who are actually racist, not us! They’re so stupid and racist! We’re so much better than them, aren’t we gang?

    Sean-Yours is the knock them over the head with a 2 x 4 type of sarcasm, eh? ;^)

    Having been a liberal for most of my life-but now in recovery-I’d say that I have never seen as much “We’re so much better than the dumb, racist, unintelligent conservative hicks” approach as I did since the year preceding the 2008 presidential election. This approach continues in full throttle even now. When you add that to an absolutely appalling misogyny by some of the tolerant liberals, that made me say “adios” to ever wishing to be known as a liberal again.

    It’s really really hard not to do that when so many of them were backing Palin.

    It’s always those freakin libs with their segregation and racism. That’s why racially motivated crime is always highest in places like California and New York.

    Methodistman: what misogyny exists among the left that’s more extreme and pronounced than it is on the right? I’m honestly puzzled and I’d like to know.

    The misogyny against Hillary Clinton- (Obama DID give her the finger) and said, “You’re likeable enough, Hillary.” (And no, I didn’t support her). Her victores in primaries were constantly downplayed or atributed to racism.

    That, however, paled in comparison to the misogyny and sexism towards Palin, Liberal columnists engaged in sex fantasies, talked about VPILTF, they wore tee shirts saying “Palin is a c***t”, someone had a Halloween decoration showing her being hanged. They posted fake photos of her in a flag bikini while Palin held a gun. Andrew Sullivan practically sniffed her underwear ranting on and on about her child not really being hers. And then we have the liberal women (those great supporters of women’s rights) who said, “Shouldn’t she really be home taking care of her family instead of running for VP?”

    Appalling and absolutely indefensible from liberals who claim to be such friends of the rights of women.

    But don’t take my word for it. Read what Dana Loesch says about the sexist tactics used to discredit Giles, the ACORN undercover journalist. I note that she says, (and Loesch is much younger than I am) that the sexism is one of the reasons why she and others left the Democratic party.

    A Halloween decoration showing her hanged? I can see how it’s moronic, but I can’t see how it’s misogynist. And how is Andrew Sullivan representative of the entire left? The idea that Trig wasn’t Palin’s never caught on in the mainstream. It was definitely an unfair criticism, but it was never actually a serious issue. And about Photoshopping Palin’s head on a woman in a bikini: that seems like less of an insult than Photoshopping Obama’s head onto Hitler, or giving him Hitler’s moustache and calling him a Nazi. I’m not saying it isn’t an insult, but to say that the big problem people had with Palin and Clinton were that they were women is disingenuous if you don’t acknowledge either the racism or the problems people had with their political beliefs.

    And there are tons of legitimate reasons to criticize Palin that were dismissed as “misogyny” during the election.

    – She used tax dollars to fly her family around the US during the campaign without proper authorization or reason.
    – When she was mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, she was part of a campaign that took over the local hospital board and banned abortions from the Mat-Su Valley. It had to be overturned by the Alaska Supreme Court after a woman flew to Seattle to get one.
    – Both when she was mayor and governor, the governments she ran became filled with corruption and cronyism.
    – As governor of Alaska, she supported the passage of a law that made women financially responsible for medical care that, after being raped, provides essential evidence. As in, it would not be possible to convict a rapist in a court of law without this evidence. This, too, was struck down by the supreme court.
    – When asked what newspapers she read on the campaign to become Vice President, she was given several minutes and several chances to answer, but was never able to name a single publication. Her most conclusive answer was “all of them.”
    – Her staff as governor of Alaska used e-mail accounts not provided by the government. This is against several laws of government transparency. A number of intra-office e-mails leaked during the campaign discussed illegal activities that she and her entire staff participated in.
    – She campaigned for mayor as a fiscal conservative, but as mayor of Wasilla, government expenditures rose by over 30%, as did taxes. This included a tax on food. The city wasn’t in debt before she was mayor, but it was $22 million in debt when she left.
    – As governor, she tried to pressure the state’s police chief into firing her sister’s ex-husband. The police chief was fired for his refusal.

    In several political arguments I had during the campaigns towards last year’s election, I had every single one of those points called misogyny several times by multiple people. It’s not misogyny. She was unfit for any position of power, and continues to be so.

    I was against Hillary during the primaries, but not because of misogyny. It was because of various political beliefs I didn’t agree with, such as her support for tax holidays that she thought would stimulate the economy, but most economists disagreed with. The health care reform Clinton campaigned on amounted to a law requiring all people to have health insurance, which would be absolutely useless. Unfortunately, Obama campaigned on universal health care, but it’s very quickly become what Hillary campaigned on.

    I’m not denying that there was misogyny. I’m arguing that it was to a lesser degree than you’re saying it was.

    And you made that third post while I was typing mine: the article you’ve posted is wildly inflammatory, and not on what I’d consider to be an unbiased news source. It’s a blog, the name is Big Government, and every link in that article is to another site with a decided bias that leaves no room for journalistic integrity. Journalistic integrity requires the writer to depict an event or issue without giving bias to either side OR revealing what his or her personal beliefs about the issue are. “Just the facts” is both the phrase and the goal. Being a journalist is not allowing personal bias to intrude into reporting.

    Beyond that, no evidence is offered that anyone is looking for discrediting photos in that blog post other than the word of the author. Dana Loesch seems to take offense that Maryland law requires both parties to consent to an audio and/or video recording, and that prosecuting Giles and O’Keefe for their “sting” (and I use the term so loosely, it’s likely to fall off the screen) is almost unequivocally evil.

    And if you couldn’t already tell, the videos of that “sting” are extremely heavily edited, and they’re coming from a filmmaker that’s known for editing film clips together to get people to say whatever he wants people to hear.

    So, in response, I will post links.

    This is a response to the “investigation” into ACORN prostitution from a partisan site.
    http://crooksandliars.com/david-neiwert/fox-gets-punkd-acorn-volunteer-knew

    And even just looking at the two of them in the video, it’s immensely obvious to anyone that neither of them make a convincing prostitute or pimp. They look like they’re wearing Halloween costumes they put no effort into. It’s extremely obvious that it was entirely fake, and I can’t imagine the two women working there didn’t think so.

    Andrew Sullivan self-identifies as conservative. That hardly makes him a supposed “left-wing misogynist.”

    Are gays not allowed in your party, Meth? You’re letting your homophobia show.

    If the videos where faked then, and your so sure of this, then I suggest you write your senators and congressional representatives to re-instate their tax payer funding. I’m sure they have not seen the video’s you have and thus should see their error in their ways.

    Thanks for all the great standard talking points from the left, Liam. Great cut and paste, or if not-you memorized your lessons really well. ;^) I heard them ad nauseum during the election, and I have neither the desire nor the time to answer every one. I find it really interesting when men in particular try to convince me-a woman-that I was wrong-that I didn’t see what I saw and heard what I heard, and that I really ought to have supported Obama, and continue to support the Democratic party. It’s patronizing. It may be a form of subtle sexism in some cases. I read more about the candidates for President and VP during this past election than I ever had before, and I was very well informed. I was originally a suppoter of John Edwards. It seems that many liberals (Note, I didn’t say “all” liberals) support women-as long as you’re a supporter of abortion on demand and as long as you tow the Democratic line. Otherwise, it’s only fair that you be mocked for being stupid, held up as being a “c–t”, speculated about in an abusive sexual manner-and if a woman Republican VP candidate-also have your record and background mischaracterized and/or lied about. It was the Republicans who actually had a woman on the Presidential ticket. The Democratic party which supposedly supports women couldn’t come up with a woman VP since Ferraro??!! I won’t even go into the voter fraud and shenanigans at the Democratic Convention that knocked Hillary Clinton out of the race. But that may have been politics as usual rather than just sexism in and of itself. Chicago policians are masters at corrupt voting practices and Obama and his cronies took Chicago tactics with them.

    But it does amuse me about how threatened some liberals are by Sarah Palin. She really gets under your skin, eh? LOL. I suppose if she gets nominated for President in 2011 many of the liberals can again trot out their disgusting sexist and misogynistic tactics? Why blow a “good” thing?!! :^(

    As far as taco-Your skip is showing. I said nothing about Sullivan’s sexual orientation. His treatment of Palin shows him to be an obsessive, mean spirited ass. With those tactics, I’d consider him the same whether he was straight or gay.

    And yet you deny that he is a conservative. Hence, my claim that you are a homophobe, as you refuse to accept that he is a member of your group. Everyone knows the GOP has a “no homo” policy. Embrace your bigotry, Meth. Don’t deny who you are. Learn to love and accept yourself as the bigot that you are.

    I also like how you guys bitch about Carter calling you racists for criticizing Obama, while at the same time embracing the belief that those who criticize Palin are sexist. Cognitive dissonance is an amazing thing.

    Liam-

    You have ‘cut & pasted’ most all the phony scape-goating lies that Sarah Palin has been completely cleared of.

    You people did this sleazy tactic against Speaker Newt Gingrich… 300+ false charges, ALL cleared (oh yes – a minor error was found in the depths of ONE tax form attachment…a very minor and trivial mistake).

    You people are as phony, shameless and dishonest as a three dollar bill.

    Why not have the honesty, grow a spine, and ADMIT what policies you oppose of Gov. Palins-?

    After you admit your differences, policy subject by subject,… stretch you bitter little mind further, and argue HOW her policies are [were] bad for Alaska, and for the nation as a whole-!
    This is called debate in the arena of idea’s.

    If you can manage these two tasks, you have taken an important step towards GROWING UP-!

    Otherwise – you are just another bed-wetting, Palin-Derangement Syndrome nutter,… and a joke.

    Taco, taco-

    If it makes you feel better to assume that I’m a bigot because I objected to Sullivan’s treatment of Palin go right ahead. It’s illogical and based on no evidence, but what the hey.. I wasn’t aware that not liking some gays or their political views automatically meant I was a bigot. LOL. You’re the one who brought up his sexual orientation. LOLOLOL.

    I shall now ignore further posts from you. The lack of logic bored me.

    And as far as Sullivan’s politics, I’m not sure what he is anymore. His sexism and misogyny towards Palin put him in the liberal camp on that issue at least.

    I said NOTHING about all opposition to Palin being sexism and misogyny, but the degrading and sometimes violent sexual language sure was.

    Toodles.

    said NOWHERE that all opposition to Palin was sexism and misogyny but the degrading sexual language sure was. No doubt about it.

    Zach,

    Can we please get something else on the menu? These troll meat tacos are hard to swallow. ;^)

  2. I’m down with everything you’ve been saying, Methodistmin. I too was once a Democrat but when the Party began to decline into leftism I had to bail. To name but one of countless examples: it’s one thing to sympathize with the plight of the poor, and quite another to pity and patronize them– to regard them as a kind of pet which one must feed [using other peoples’ money] and coddle, encouraging a dependence and cultural down-spiralling in them that would have delighted the heart of the KKK.

    One almost needs a professional level of prayer in order to argue with the cartoonish accusatory nature of the left; I can forsee a day when ALL of my non-left visitors will need to be ministers.

  3. Taco: Regarding your statement, “And yet you deny [Andrew Sullivan] is a conservative. Hence, my claim that you are a homophobe, as you refuse to accept that he is a member of your group.”

    There are large numbers of gay people who identify themselves as Republicans; many are members of “Log Cabin Clubs” which I believe are located across the country. Gay Republicans may number as many as 20% of the overall group according to stats I’ve read– not an insignificant amount.

    By the way do you approve of and embrace Clarence Thomas? No? RACIST. (There: “How to argue like a liberal in one easy lesson.”) Do you like Shelby Steele’s thinking, or Thomas Sowell’s? No? RACIST.

    Thanks, Zach, for your words. I am glad to hear the experiences of other people who were formerly Democratic who became Independent or Republican. Whenever I bring this up on political forums, a frequent response from liberals is “You’re lying. You couldn’t possibly be a Democrat.” (Nobody has yet said that here that as I recall.) Then they want me to recite the name of every Democratic Presidential candidate I voted for since Mondale , as well practically give them my voting record. It’s inconcievable to them that anyone could be so totally turmed off by the party that the made a switch. As I remarked too-I’m not the only woman who dumped the Dems in part because of sexism and misogyny.

    LOL at your response about ministers eventualy being the only non liberals who come on this board. I pray for Obama everyday. I try to avoid prayers that tell God what to do, as in “God, hit Obama over the head with a clue by four.” ;^) I do, however, pray for the well being of our country and that if Obama’s in need of healing he receives that. I think he is somewhere way over on the NPD spectrum, so I think he’s in great need of healing. Then agan, I think everybody is in need of healing in one way or another.

    Best to you.

    “I also like how you guys bitch about Carter calling you racists for criticizing Obama, while at the same time embracing the belief that those who criticize Palin are sexist.” Oh come on now Taco! You know better than that. Liberal women in office, in power, are either liberal or are thrown off the reservation. Remember my friend who got them their? Womens liberation. How dare any Female claim the seat of power without giving credit to the national organization of women! So yeah, we do claim sexism, and we have every right to do so. Nope strong liberal women abort their fetuses. You betcha! That is the true sign of a powerful women! I firmly believe had Palin been a Democrat, she would be the shinning example of the women that can do it all! Raise a family, become governor of Alaska! Then your boy Carter comes along, who has not seen a corrupt election he wouldn’t endorse… and throws out the race bomb. His diatribe would have garnered just a little more credence had Obama LOST the election! Sorry Taco, a Raaaaacisssst nation would not have elected Obama. The claims of racism are, again another way of squelching debate when it comes to disagreeing with Obama.

    Hey kids! Accusations of racism is the new bitch slap! Its fun! if it works for failed Presidents it can work for you!

    Some of the liberals are horrified, horrified that Palin might have a ghost writer, yet conveniently ignore Ayers’ writing of Obama’s autobiography. Yet another thing we can flush down the toilet: Obama isn’t a good speaker away from the teleprompter and from Jon “speechwriter” Favreaux or other speech writers. He can’t write his own stirring autobiogrpahy (and had to lie about the man who wrote it saying he “just lived in the neighborhood.” Obama is suposedly a great brain but will produce NO records from undergradate school or Harvard Law School.

    Well, look at that! I leave to have a life of music and whimsy, and come back to be accused of copy-pasted misogyny! Wow! You sure did convince yourself that I said a bunch of things I didn’t say, there, Methodistmin!

    So you have neither the desire nor the time to answer, rebuke, or even give cursory examination to any of the things I posted, and would rather just call me names and say nothing of consequence. Truly, the political strategy of a man concerned with the state of our country: refusing to address issues of importance, and instead, just telling me that I’m wrong and you aren’t.

    I don’t do that, because I give value to arguments, and invest time and effort into researching issues and choosing the side I believe to be correct. There’s more than one side to every issue. This is your response, and everything that’s wrong with it:

    “Thanks for all the great standard talking points from the left, Liam. Great cut and paste, or if not-you memorized your lessons really well. ;^)”

    Why is it that, to you, I’m not intelligent enough to form my own opinions? And I realize that this line is supposed to be humorous-but-serious, but it really just comes off as patronizing.

    “I heard them ad nauseum during the election, and I have neither the desire nor the time to answer every one.”

    How dare people talk about things a year ago. All of which, according to you and Steve, could be easily disproven by Googling any of them and posting the link to see the look on my face. But you “have no desire to.”

    “I find it really interesting when men in particular try to convince me-a woman-that I was wrong-that I didn’t see what I saw and heard what I heard, and that I really ought to have supported Obama, and continue to support the Democratic party. It’s patronizing. It may be a form of subtle sexism in some cases.”

    Yes, it’s obviously sexism when a man disagrees with you, and he only does it because you’re a woman. Is this a joke? Like I said before, I’m not saying sexism doesn’t exist, I’m telling you that there are legitimate reasons to dislike Palin and you can’t just call all of them sexism!

    “I read more about the candidates for President and VP during this past election than I ever had before, and I was very well informed. I was originally a suppoter of John Edwards.”

    Okay.

    “It seems that many liberals (Note, I didn’t say “all” liberals) support women-as long as you’re a supporter of abortion on demand and as long as you tow the Democratic line.”

    It seems that many conservatives (Note, I didn’t say “all” conservatives) support women-as long as you’re an opponent of abortion and toe the Republican line. You see, I can make radical generalizations about large, diverse groups of people, too. It’s like saying “no offense” before saying something offensive. Or saying “now I’m not a racist, but…” before saying something racist. And it’s wrong for the same reasons.

    “Otherwise, it’s only fair that you be mocked for being stupid, held up as being a “c–t”, speculated about in an abusive sexual manner-and if a woman Republican VP candidate-also have your record and background mischaracterized and/or lied about.”

    Except that the way you’re presenting the argument, you’re saying that the majority of the opposition to Palin was simply because she was a woman. Which is wrong. Like I keep saying, there are legitimate reasons to be against Palin, even if you’re ignoring any of the points I posted earlier about her work history in Alaska.

    “It was the Republicans who actually had a woman on the Presidential ticket. The Democratic party which supposedly supports women couldn’t come up with a woman VP since Ferraro??!!”

    It was an extremely close race between Obama and Clinton during the Democratic primaries. That a woman was on the Presidential ticket is not a milestone: the first female candidate for President was Victoria Woodhull of the Equal Rights Party in 1872. The first female candidate for Vice President was Marietta Stow in 1884, also of the Equal Rights Party. This past election, there were actually four female candidates for President, and five female candidates for Vice President. Nobody knows this because the two-party system is a horrible system, but nobody cares enough to vote for minority parties.

    “I won’t even go into the voter fraud and shenanigans at the Democratic Convention that knocked Hillary Clinton out of the race.”

    Aaaaaaand you continue to “not go into” something. You seem content to tell me I’m wrong and not to affirm that you aren’t.

    “But that may have been politics as usual rather than just sexism in and of itself. Chicago policians are masters at corrupt voting practices and Obama and his cronies took Chicago tactics with them.”

    Yes. Chicago is actually corrupt enough to tamper with the voting systems of other states around the country and get away with it. And the “Chicago politicians” certainly have enough connections and manpower to orchestrate something like that and have it never leak. Yes. This is perfectly reasonable. No sarcasm here, nosirree.

    “But it does amuse me about how threatened some liberals are by Sarah Palin.”

    I read this and laughed really hard.

    “She really gets under your skin, eh? LOL.”

    Yes. She really manages to get under my skin by bumbling through speeches and never really telling us why she isn’t governor of Alaska anymore. And convoluted sports analogies really just burn my biscuits! I have to hide my shame beneath this uproarious laughter.

    “I suppose if she gets nominated for President in 2011 many of the liberals can again trot out their disgusting sexist and misogynistic tactics? Why blow a “good” thing?!! :^(”

    Oh yeah, our “disgusting sexist and misogynistic tactics.” You know, like “being in favor of safe and legal abortions” and “not wanting to return to the Nixon-era politics of corruption, secrecy and cronyism.” My personal favorite is “stare in disbelief at the people interviewed in this video,” I mean, the only reason I’m even at all offended is definitely because I’m a misogynist.

    It definitely can’t have anything to do with her political views, incompetence, or any legitimate reason not to like. Nope.

  6. Joseph: Yeah– last time I saw people as angry over cartoons as some of these lefties are, they were radical Muslims burning down buildings and killing people.

    I gotta admit I’m kind of amused at the notion of a No Conservatives Allowed cemetery. In the bad old days, pre-1960s, there used to be neighborhoods that were known as Restricted, i.e. Blacks and Jews couldn’t live there. They had highfalutin names like Fotheringay Estates, and Worthington Row. There still are restricted neighborhoods only now it’s conservatives who aren’t allowed to be themselves or speak their opinions free from repercussions. These neighborhoods are called, for example, San Francisco and Manhattan.

  7. Ikabod: Good luck getting lefties to stop crying “racism” down every street corner; in the right hands it can be an endless cash crop. Hustlers like Jesse Jackson and [Democrat presidential candidate] Al Sharpton would be nowhere without their incessant drumbeat of racism through which they extort money from fearful corporations afraid of being labeled racists despite the hollowness of the charge generally.

    Now this post is for Steve. At no point did policies come up in the argument we initially had, so I didn’t see a reason to bring them up. It’s pretty terrible that your initial reaction is to insult people you’re disagreeing with. I’m not obligated to respond to childish insults, but calling your insults childish would be an insult to children. Here. Now take that stick out of your ass.

    – Palin is in favor of criminalizing abortion, the only caveat being if the mother’s life is at stake. Meaning any number of reasons to have an abortion, including incest and rape, are not legally sanctioned reasons and the woman would be legally required to carry the baby to term. She thinks Roe v. Wade should be overturned and have abortion be a states’ rights issue.

    – Palin is in favor of teaching the Biblical creation, or intelligent design, in science classrooms alongside evolution. Creationism has nothing to do with science, and intelligent design is not a legitimate scientific theory. There is no great debate over intelligent design as a scientific theory and there never was, because the idea of an “intelligent designer” is an unprovable, untestable theory.

    – She is opposed to stem cell research. The way embryonic stem cell research works is that the woman can choose if the aborted fetus is donated for use in research. If so, then it is. If not, it’s disposed of. What Palin is saying is that all fetuses need to be disposed of, because look at these possibilities!
    – Cure many types of cancers
    – Cure HIV/AIDS
    – Prevent the rejection of donated organs
    – Healing injuries that commonly leave people permanently disabled
    – Cure and prevent Alzheimer’s
    None of these things are “pro-life” enough for her to justify doing something other than destroying the fetuses.

    – She opposes same-sex marriage, is in favor of a constitutional amendment stating that marriage is solely heterosexual, and (as governor of Alaska) only allowed same sex couples to have the same health and retiree benefits as heterosexual couples because the Supreme Court ordered her to do so. She has expressed her support to disallow homosexual couples from gaining state benefits.

    – She is in favor of capital punishment.

    – She is against the decriminalization of marijuana (decriminalization is not the same as legalization), even for medicinal use.

    – She cut the budget in Wasilla as mayor and in Alaska as governor, but lobbied for earmarks that could have easily been paid for using the money cut from the budget.

    – Is against universal healthcare and has said that the problem is that people aren’t taking enough “personal responsibility” for their health. The United States, as a member of the United Nations, voted in favor of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights on December 10, 1948. One of the rights guaranteed by the UDHR was the right to medical care. That the world’s richest nation has told the world that medical care is a human right, but continues to only offer it to its own citizens if they can pay for it, is inhumanly cruel.

    – She gave name to the “death panels” that will decide if you get medical care under UHC, but for some reason don’t exist under a for-profit system that gains profits from denying medical care to its customers. You know, those things that aren’t “death panels” that decide which patients get organ transplants and which ones have to die from organ failure due to rationing of care.

    – She is in favor of drilling for oil in the Alaskan National Wildlife Reserve. It would do nothing for the national oil reserves, price of gas, or national state of energy dependency.

    – Palin was part of an effort to legalize hunting wolves from helicopter and make it more difficult for nature conservation groups to sue the state.

    – When polar bears were categorized as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act, Palin was more concerned with energy development near polar bear habitats, stating that global warming has had no ill effects on the polar bear.

    – Beluga whales were declared an endangered species less than a month before the Presidential elections last year. But under her leadership as governor, Chevron was allowed to triple the amount of toxic waste it dumped into the main habitat of the Beluga whale.

    Is this credible enough for you, Steve? Do you still think I’m a reactionary moron? Or are you the only reactionary moron here?

It doesn’t seem to be anything more than a really poorly done comic that makes a vague, half-hearted attempt to imply that “Liberals are the real racists”, I think.

    Liam-

    Due to a temporary keyboard problem, all my typing is ‘point & click’, on a ‘on screen’ keyboard,… so I will not address as much as I would like.

    This Nov., my twin babies would be 2 years old – but there was a miscarriage.
    Would you care to try and argue to their mother and me that those two babies were “…unviable tissue forms”-?

    Now that YOU are born, the 45-50+ million butcher-bill of aborted babies is no concern to you cold indifferent attitude about the murder of innocent life.

    You perception about stem cell research is also typical of your very limited and miss-understood perception of ALL the other topics in your missive.

    All types of stem cell research have been open to private research for many, many years.

    WITHOUT exception, embryonic research has been a gruesome, terrible, hideously painful failure for all the lab animals used. Numeous lab technicians have written about their gut-wrenching and tearful accounts about watching these predictable results.

    Yet – people like you want TAXPAYERS to pay for more hideous research, that pro-abortionists want to promote.

    Do YOU want to be included within this ‘Dr. Mengele’ culture-?

    ALL the great successes in stem cell research have come from adult [non-embryonic] stem cells.

    FACTS ARE STUBBORN THINGS-!

    And… I am a VERY strong supporter of putting killers to death.

    Palin has MY vote-!!

    …and, her book, weeks before it will be released, is #1 already on the best sellers list-!

    Steve, you’re getting things mixed up there. There’s a difference between medical issues (like miscarriages) and wanting an abortion if you’re the victim of rape, or incest. Not every sing bundle of cells is aborted because the mother or father doesn’t want them, there are legitimate medical concerns usually.

    Prove it about “WITHOUT exception, embryonic research has been a gruesome, terrible, hideously painful failure for all the lab animals used. Numeous lab technicians have written about their gut-wrenching and tearful accounts about watching these predictable results.” with a non-partisan source, preferably legitimate scientific data. I don’t believe you for one second that ALL research turns out like that, or even MOST.

    I’m for the death penalty tho, shocking isn’t it? But only for extreme cases.

    As for her book, it’s being bought up by Conservative mailing lists and the like to send out for free to people, just so the numbers can be inflated. Read up on it, same thing happened with Levin and Hannity. Y’don’t see that happening with Colbert’s books.

    Manuel –
    Go do your homework.
    Accounts given by lab researchers from their work, year after year, are filled with awful accounts of lab animals suffering awfully, from embryonic research.
    It is terrible, and gruesome.

    Biologically speaking, embryonic cells are like ‘loose cannons’,… they go crazy and cause hideous, out of control growth patterns.

    Sorry- while you were watching CNN, PMS-NBC, CBS, ABC,… these folks chose to ignore this – becase it is contrary to their liberal template.

    Regarding rape and incest – these account for less than 2 percent of abortions — the 96+ percent are for convenient BIRTH CONTROL-!
    [ask Jesse Jackson-!]

    By the way – if YOU were conceived from a rape, do YOU deserve to be put to death-?

    Still can’t find those imaginary sources, can you? Imagine if all adversarial systems, such as a court, worked by using Steve’s “logic”. The defense attorney would be required to provide all of the evidence to back up the claims made by the prosecutor. If evidence cannot be found to support the prosecution, it just means the defense is lazy, and, in that event, we are to believe that all claims made by the prosecutor are to be accepted without any support at all.

    Can anyone explain why Steve’s system of debate is stupid?

    “‘You’ must have been an ardvark”

    There is more to identity than just being a of certain species. I could provide links to discussions of the nature of identity, but instead I’ll just follow your strategy and tell you to find evidence to support my claims by yourself. I don’t want you walking around with skid marks in your tighty-whiteys, after all.

    1.Murder of a child. No death penalty, just make sure the general population knows what he did. I say open season on the bastard.
    2.Mass murderer, death penalty done. 3.Rapist, See Scenario 1.
    4.Animal cruelty. See scenario 1.

    Liam-

    Just a few things:

    You complained about me attributing things to you which you never said, and then went to to accuse me of thinking that “it’s obviously sexism when someone disagrees with you” which I NEVER SAID. Unless you can read my mind, and know that I was thinking that-which I wasn’t- you might want to retract that. I said it was interesting when “men try to convince me that I didn’t see what I saw and heard what I heard.” Are you all men? Did I say, you Liam do that? No. I also said, if not to you, than in another post that all opposition to Palin is not rooted in sexism-but that the disgusting sexual references such as calling her a c**t, and saying, as one male journalist whose name happily escapes me,”I’d like to f**k Palin on top of the American flag while I hold her mouth closed and my wife watches.” There is no excuse for those outrageous comments. There was a comedienne said “Palin deservesd to be raped by a gang of black men.” Even some women’s rights leader complained about that, but most Democratic women did not . In the case of the journalist it was sexism and degrading sexual language and a desire to shut her up. Great advocate of free speech that guy was?!!. Big advocate of women’s right?. I can’t even begin to explain the reprehensible behavior of the comedience. I guess for some loving and tolerant liberals sexual violence is acceptable if it’s directed towards a conservative woman?!!. There was also racism there as well since the comedienne was white. I don’t think rape should EVER be a subject for humor. Do you? I fault any men or women men who said nothing aginst this. I also explained what the disgusting sexism and misogyny was as well. It is not expressing disagreement with Palin. It is the type of thing whick I just posted.

    I commented that the Democratic party did not have a woman VP candidate since Ferraro. Are you a history major or teacher? Is there some reason you wanted to tell me about Victoria Woodhull (whom I actually did know about) and Mariette Snow(whom I didn’t know about; Thanks for the information)? They were in the Equal Rights Party in the 1870’s and 1880’s. They were a fringe party and women did not get the vote in America until after WWI. That, as interesting as it may be, has nothing to do with the fact that the Democratic party which supposedly supports women has not had a woman VP on the ticket since Ferraro. That was 30 plus years ago.

    As far as voter fraud goes, I know someone who worked in the Iowa primary. She said people were bused in from IL to vote for Obama. The caucus system was a disgrace and very fradulent. Arm twsited went on at the convention to get faux Messiah in smoothly. People couldn’t even vote for Hillary.

    As far as your comments about what Palin believes, you posted inaccurate statements, but that was par for the course for liberals who wanted to put the most negative and erroneous spin on everything she said and also lied about her record. Unless I get a huge degree of energy I don’t see a need to do posts on information which you wouldn’t believe anyway.

  10. Thanks Donny, Methodistmin for the critiques of this one. The problem with a series like this is that folks sometimes expect a nonstop commentary on current politics; which is not my sole intent by any means. The store of general leftist behavior is, I find, very rich, and can be tapped now and again notwithstanding the absence of any topical subject. So, in this one I was simply making a funny about how dead set (so to speak) libs are against conservatives; dead set enough to want to avoid them even in death. The exactly reverse joke could validly be drawn by a liberal artist poking fun at conservatives. It’s just good clean political humor, no topical commentary intended.

    “Demyelination contributes to loss of function after spinal cord injury, and thus a potential therapeutic strategy involves replacing myelin-forming cells. Here, we show that transplantation of human embryonic stem cell (hESC)-derived oligodendrocyte progenitor cells (OPCs) into adult rat spinal cord injuries enhances remyelination and promotes improvement of motor function. OPCs were injected 7 d or 10 months after injury. In both cases, transplanted cells survived, redistributed over short distances, and differentiated into oligodendrocytes. Animals that received OPCs 7 d after injury exhibited enhanced remyelination and substantially improved locomotor ability. In contrast, when OPCs were transplanted 10 months after injury, there was no enhanced remyelination or locomotor recovery. These studies document the feasibility of predifferentiating hESCs into functional OPCs and demonstrate their therapeutic potential at early time points after spinal cord injury.”

    Human embryonic stem cells improved motor function in recently injured rats. Steve still has no evidence for anything, and Mark’s challenge has been met. Now the onus is on Mark and Steve to disprove lizard people.

    Who’s a little loser? Where’s the loser? Oh, there he is, and his name is Mark. Go cry to your mommy, Mark. Let her taste those sweet tears of defeat. Let her savor their flavor, Mark. Oh, how delicious.

    You talk of changing goal posts, than change the subject from stem cells to McCain/Palin!

    Your mockery is sweet nectar.

    Someone doesn’t know the meaning of the phrase “shifting goalposts”.

    Your language deficiencies are not my problem, Mark.

  11. Donny: Your earlier proclamation that this cartoon is poor because, as I myself stated, it conceptually can be reversed to apply to conservatives as well as liberals, is inane and arbitrary. What are you, the Cartoon Czar? There is zero basis for claiming this “rule” of humor, though to so confidently assert such speaks quite a lot about your sense of self-importance. Try absorbing a new concept: cartoons can simply be about human foibles, and applicable to both Left and Right.

    Someone can’t handle criticism of his comics very well.

    “I made a comic that I myself admit is applicable to everyone, but instead decided to present at as though it only applies to one group, because I am a partisan hack who injects my beliefs into places where they clearly don’t fit. If anyone points out that this makes for lazy, nonsensical comics, I’ll get butthurt and try to claim that it is actually their fault that they got a political message out of my clearly politically biased cartoon. My name is Zack R.”

    Hey hey Donny. These comics take 80-90 hours of research a week yknow.

  12. Donny: I have no problem whatever with folks not liking my stuff; it’s all a matter of taste. I do, however, take pains to correct the occasional carping critique that is as off-base logically as yours was. You can take swipes at my stuff as much as you like, it’s sort of interesting to me to hear it, but the laying down of Rules of Humor regarding What Cannot Be Funny– (e.g., a concept equally applicable to Right and Left, like politically restricted cemeteries)– strikes me as pedantic in the extreme.

    Have a little cheese with that whine, Zack.
