Yeah, that Sermon-on-the-Mount thingy was wayyyy to libby.
 
2012-02-16 07:32:31 AM
In it, she calls Speaker John Boehner and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor "demons" who "would rather do whatever they can to destroy this president, rather than for the good of this country."

And this is apparently disputed?

Both sides are bad. Vote fundamentalist theocracy.

No YOU'RE a Towel: In it, she calls Speaker John Boehner and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor "demons" who "would rather do whatever they can to destroy this president, rather than for the good of this country."


By "looney left" do you mean the part about "demons"?
 
2012-02-16 07:41:40 AM
Demons, aliens, whatever
 
2012-02-16 07:43:01 AM
Meanwhile, the Right has a terrible time understanding the metaphorical usage of words like "demon".

GAT_00: Both sides are bad. Vote fundamentalist theocracy.


I have decided that since both sides are bad, I will vote challenger. In the long run, if they know they aren't going to be able to make a career of it, maybe they will at least try to do something useful while they are there.

/but they still probably won't

Someone's trying to find a Left wing analog to the religious Right?

Good luck with that.

Rev. Skarekroe: Meanwhile, the Right has a terrible time understanding the metaphorical usage of words like "demon".


"Metaphor" is beyond their mental syllables-per-word limit. It's sorta like infrared or ultraviolet; they can't perceive it.

The Religious Left: Those people who take the bible literally when it says "Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire which is prepared for the devil and his angels; for I was hungry, and you didn't give me food to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave me no drink; I was a stranger, and you didn't take me in; naked, and you didn't clothe me; sick, and in prison, and you didn't visit me. [...] Most certainly I tell you, inasmuch as you didn't do it to one of the least of these, you didn't do it to me."

The Religious Right: Those people who take the bible literally when it says anything other than that.
 
2012-02-16 08:37:09 AM
As a card carrying member of the quasi-religious left, I would like to point out that this insane woman does NOT represent me.
 
2012-02-16 08:44:05 AM
The "religious left" is restricted to a few small districts, the "religious right" runs the fkn country...

/same thing

//fk you, admins
 
2012-02-16 08:49:06 AM
I'm part of the Religious Left, and this woman does not remotely represent my views.
Let's be honest here, the "Religious Left" is a very small part of the Left, whereas the "Religious Right" pretty much runs the Right. There's very little comparison.

Especially if you throw in loonies like this lady.
 
2012-02-16 08:51:12 AM
Just as looney, but not as dangerous.
 
2012-02-16 08:51:58 AM
FTFA: In it, she calls Speaker John Boehner and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor "demons" who "would rather do whatever they can to destroy this president, rather than for the good of this country."

She's definitely a nutter but that shiat is true. Cantor and the Weeping Cheeto of the House don't give a fark about the country.

I'll agree she's looney. But this isn't an example of that.
 
2012-02-16 09:32:09 AM
the obvious answer is, religion is looney.
 
2012-02-16 09:35:45 AM
The thing is the left identifies their loonies with amusement and generally treats them like an old, befuddled relative.

The right embraces and elevates their loonies.

Local Representative to national office. Fair enough - my bad.

Again, when this coont leads the party for POTUS nom, we'll talk apples and apples, instead of your bullshiat comparison.

So this is a general statement: anyone who equates this biatch as being a representative equal to the "religious right" is a fkn moran.

Fair?

In it, she calls Speaker John Boehner and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor "assholes" who "would rather do whatever they can to destroy this president, rather than for the good of this country."

There. All better.

Lionel Mandrake: Fair?


I don't know what you mean. She's just as crazy (or possibly more so) as any right wing religious whack job I've seen in Congress contemporaneously.

I don't know how much of hers is religion based, versus just being crazy and stupid though.

You don't know the difference between a Congressional Representative and a frontrunner for party nom for President?

How sad...
 
2012-02-16 11:00:13 AM
Lets see, Obama's popularity is increasing as the economy improves, the Republican Presidential race is a laughingstock, and the GOP just picked a losing fight with Obama over birth control.

What is an NRO blogger to do?

I'm really sorry you were wrong, but don't take it out on me. This lady is in line (like "next in" if Dems win) to be chairperson of the f*cking Finance Committee. She's already been applying her special brand of crazy and stupid at a national level for a long time.

And assuming you are talking about Romney, he has done nothing at the national level other than provide Obama with advisors on the development of the health care bill.

Well voting for Rick Santorum will certainly bring about change.

Is she in line with being nominated for the Presidential hopeful of the party?

No?

I was actually thinking of Santorum. Romney is a f*cking gem compared to that asshole. When the Democrats elevate Waters to the level of Santorum, we'll talk.

Until then, stop pretending both sides are equal.

Lionel Mandrake: When the Democrats elevate Waters to the level of Santorum, we'll talk.


So when she's been out of office for 5 years, and is running what is most likely a hopeless campaign for the Dem nomination?

It's not your fault Waters is batsh*t, let it go.

Apparently, you think anyone who runs a campaign for a presidential nomination rates higher than sitting (and senior) members of Congress. Which I suppose you are entitled to believe.

/it's still wrong

Runs? No. Leads? Yes.

You're still equating apples and oranges.

I suppose you're entitled to be wrong.

Santorum's campaign is hardly hopeless.

Santorum leads Romney, 30% to 28%, of Republican and GOP-leaning voters in a Pew Research Center poll taken Wednesday through Sunday. A month ago, Romney had a 17-point lead over Santorum in the Pew survey.

In Gallup's daily tracking poll, Romney leads Santorum by two percentage points: 32% to 30% among registered GOP voters. Romney previously had a 19-point lead on Santorum during Gallup interviews taken Jan. 30-Feb. 3.

If he gets the nomination, he still holds no office. If you want to wager on him getting the nomination, I'd be glad to take the other side.

The point as, I understand it, is that she holds a powerful national office. He holds no office, and is unlikely to.

Oh, and she's batsh*t crazy.

/for the record, I think he's an idiot, too.
