ALMOST EVERYONE IN THE MEDIA HAS GONE ‘GA-GA’ OVER THE PREZ ELECT’S PECS - ALTHOUGH ONE POLITICAL PUNDIT HAS HAD A DECIDEDLY DIFFERENT TAKE


"You can never win an argument with a female anyway. Even if you do, they always make you pay for it in the end … the cost of victory can be very high." - Hale Harlay



Writing in the New Republic, Jonathan Chait had this to say about the excesses of presidential fitness:

"Am I the only person who finds this disturbing? … What I mean is the fact that he has an obsession with exercise that borders on the creepy ...

"Given the importance of his job, it is astonishing how much time he has to exercise ...

"Does the leader of the free world need to attain that level of physical achievement? ...

"His insistence that the entire populace follow his example, and that his staff join him on a Long March – er, Long Run – carries about it the faint whiff of a cult of personality. It also shows how out of touch he is. It’s nice for him that he can take an hour or two out of every day to run, bike or pump iron. Unfortunately, most of us have more demanding jobs than he does."

Oh, wait … he wasn’t talking about Barack Obama. He was talking about President George Bush back in 2005!

Why am I not surprised?

Never mind!

Like arguing with a woman, I’ve know for a long time you can’t have a rational discussion with a left-winger the vast majority of the time. The presidential fitness story is a perfect example. There is no logic. No reason. Nothing but emotion, ideology, and agenda.

Present libs with facts and they ignore them, question their validity, attack your sources, change the subject, try to silence you, and when all else fails, call you names and run away to hide and get reassurance from like-minded people.

It never fails. It’s like the Sun coming up in the morning.

Libs can be against spying on terrorists but for installing GPS devices in cars to track people’s driving habits in order to tax them for their excessive driving - it's only fair.

Libs blame the current president when gasoline shoots up to $4 a gallon, lament the burden it puts on people, then propose to tax it back up to $4 (to control the little people) when it drops down to under $1.50 - a price, by the way, all their experts declared we’d never see again.

Libs declare a 52% majority in the presidential election a landslide but a 52% majority for Prop 8 in California a narrow victory. They then rail against the democratic process and organize storm troopers to harass and threaten Mormons, senior citizens, bandleaders, and restaurant workers (making darn sure to stay out of the hood and away from mosques where Blacks, Hispanics, and Muslims who overwhelmingly supported Prop 8 as well might but be not-so-tolerant and measured in their response to "protests").

Libs love to rail against capitalism and greed as the source of our economic woes, but have you noticed that the cities and states that are lining up for bailouts are blue and run by liberals?

Like little kids who’ve suffered an arrested development from getting their way, they think things come from nowhere and there is no such thing as right and wrong.

While 2008 will go down as the year journalism died, add to that the death of ethics, common sense, integrity, and any sense of shame on the part of an ever-increasing majority.

We are seeing the devolution of everything. It’s quite remarkable to watch.

More examples of why it’s impossible to have a rational discussion with left-wingers to come. Next on the agenda: The Sweet Caroline Schlossberg Kennedy episode.

life must be eaten
or at least bitten into
to get past the surface
the moment of truth
you know when it's right
it's sweet deep inside
it's real and its better
that some things don't change
