It’s hard work fighting an army of strawmen

You have to feel for our conservative, neoconservative, right wing and keyboard kommando brethren.  I mean, there is just so much that they are up against.  With total control of Congress for over a decade, the White House and the Judicial Branch for at least the past 6 years (longer if you count how many Supreme Court Justices have been appointed by republicans) and near total control of the political, economic and foreign policy agenda – it is tough to find others to blame when shit meets fan and it all blows up in their face.

It goes back all the way to the welfare queens that were stealing from We the People by getting 80 social security numbers and having 25 children.  Good thing that was beaten back before it got out of hand.  And yet, over and over again, there is the multitude of strawmen armies that keep trying to ruin the great republican dream.  It never stops, and it has just got to be exhausting to constantly be on the front lines without sufficient rest against the boogyman of the day, week or month.  If it wasn’t the gays that want to ruin the institution of marriage and make incest legal, then it was those who were for legalizing infanticide.

And with the country at war, it is even tougher to defend from the increasing number of strawman militia that have propped up.  phony soldiers that had the gall to talk about their actual experiences in Iraq.  How can those who are bravely providing color commentary on what is REALLY going on in Iraq from thousands of miles away be expected to “fight and decisively win multiple, simultaneous major theater wars” against the troops, the liberal media, as well as the 70% of Americans loony left who want out of Iraq?

In addition to the Islamic extremists who want to smuggle nukes across the Mexican border, there are the illegal immigrants who want to come here and commit so many crimes.  Not to mention the phony jews who dare to get offended at blowhard Coulter’s predictably offensive and just as stupid comments, or the secular progressives who advocate legalization of narcotics, euthanasia, abortion at will, gay marriage and HATE CHRISTMAS!!!.  Can you believe that these people are actually out there?

Of course, there are also those of us liberals who support terrorism.  Not this kind of terrorism which actually does exist and did happen (and still is happening), but this kind of terrorism that those who weren’t in charge and didn’t blow off warnings and didn’t focus on it were clearly responsible for, and actually cheered it on.

Yes, so many groups of strawmen ganging up on these fine upstanding citizens, nay, heroic patriots who are so bravely fighting off all these strawmen armies that they themselves created.  It gets tiring saving the world from evil people that want basic affordable healthcare for millions of children.  And it must be downright exhausting telling those fake troops who put their lives on the line for this country what is really going on in Iraq.

But those liberals…..they don’t stop.  They want to kill babies.  They want to take away everyone’s guns.  They hate Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and Jesus Christ – that is if they even believe in them.  They want to legalize rape and marrying your pets.  They are out of the mainstream.  And they hate America. 

So many strawmen who were responsible for the shape this country is in.  Their agenda, values and actions are emboldening the terrorists and leading to the downfall of society.

It’s tough being a republican, conservative, neoconservative, rightist or keyboard kommando nowadays.

  1. against strawmen everywhere! Thanks, clam-man

  2. Pitchforks and torches are both effective tools in dealing with unruly straw.

    Just a coincidence of course!

  3. on TV last night pitted against Paul Krugman. Although not net guys, it was really really pathetic to listen to Tucker try and peddle winger bullshit, fear and hate. When up against someone who had a brain as well as human decency. I kept thinking this guy T is not only despicable he’s stupid. Such a strange brew the Wingers are psycho preppies and pig ignorant low lifes. The candidates, Republican, are the same as the truth and time are revealing their strawmen, more and more absurd.
