Erix: Linux_Yes: the Republicans may have weird views of abortion, contraception, etc, but they can bust nuts with the best of them. look at Arnold schwarzeneger, he knocked up his long term housekeeper while under the same roof as his wife. his wife had her baby a couple months after the house keeper did.

Arnold was keeping it in the family, i guess.

Yeah, but he's more the old-school style Republican that's more concerned about fiscal issues than what other people do with their genitals. I don't remember him ever spouting off about family values.

He was a dick in his personal life, but at least he wasn't a hypocrite about it.



i guess another way of putting it is that his dick ran his personal life. almost like a mini me. a mini arnold.

Here is what to do if you want to get a lift from a Vogon: forget it.
They are one of the most unpleasant races in the Galaxy -- not actually evil, but bad tempered, bureaucratic, officious and callous.

The best way to get a drink out of a Vogon is to stick your finger down his throat.

On no account allow a Vogon to read poetry at you.

Maybe God was just kidding when he forgave him.

bhcompy: Just a reminder that John Edwards ran on family values, too.



Family values means you are in favor of legislating morality on everyone else. Gay rights, abortion, etc.

What did Edwards support that fits this definition?

Fixed for you.

Just a reminder that John Edwards ran on family values, too.


Yeah, no. Edwards ran on ending poverty, energy independence, making college affordable for all; he was pro-choice, against gay marriage and against legalizing pot. His health care reform plan included insurance mandates and a public option.

So, nice try (not really) but even if you were right (you're not) that's one guy you found to justify your 'BSABSVR' bull.

Gyrfalcon: cchris_39: dopirt: I'll play if you will. In the vice president debate Paul Ryan stated that he considered life to begin at conception, yet he also felt that abortions in the case of rape or incest were Ok. How do you reconcile these two statements? How does the fetus's method of existence matter.

Believe it or not, there are conservatives who accept those exceptions, even first trimester abortions. And (this will really blow your mind), there are liberals who find third trimester and partial birth abortions as gruesome and unacceptable as conservatives do.

Even people who are devoutly pro-choice are not happy about abortion, you know. Nobody I know jumps out of bed in the morning going "Yay! We have abortions! Isn't that lovely!"


Here's the thing (and I think it's the point you were trying to make). There's a difference between being pro-life (honestly, it's just anti-abortion) and having a deeply held religious belief in the miracle of life beginning at the instant of conception. One can be anti-abortion in the general and still allow for exceptions. One cannot, in any way have a deeply held religious belief that has loopholes. Ryan (as I'm sure you know) went out of his way to justify his anti-abortion position within the framework of his religious beliefs. It's why he felt he needed to tell that (possibly plagiarized) story about his little "Bean."
So, yes, either he's lying or he's condoning what he believes to be murder. Either way, he's breaking a Commandment. Just to get elected.

I am not saying that both sides are hypocrites, I am just saying that every human on earth is one. Humans are good at convincing themselves that they practice what they preach as we are more interested in shaming or attacking others.

BTW your last sentence was an incomplete sentence. I am just giving you a heads up. I am not trying to be a grammar Nazi or anything.

Whoa. Hey! That's different! Weiner campaigned on a No Pictures of a Tumescent Penis platform. Once he released pictures of his tumescent penis, he totally became a hypocrite.

vpb: Isn't part of the reason for being a family values pro-life Republican that it makes for better cover when you do this sort of thing? Sort of like pretending to hate gays while you take it in the can in airport restrooms.


Well, it's true that it is a good cover, however you probably should never assume that's the case for any given individual.

It's too bad both sides aren't bad on these issues.

Democrats resign, Republicans pretend to resign, then stick to the greedy power grab despite their Deflections, Hypocrisy, and Projection. It's pretty dispicable and why I will never vote for that party, despite it being in my best interest.

Chelsea Clinton Is Carrot Top's Lost Twin: /meh. who am I kidding? his sheeple would forgive him for that. just like they forgave him for being a drug shopping hypocrite drug addict; just like they forgave him for getting divorced a first time, and a second time, and a third time...


While I take issue with Limbaugh on political grounds, I have to say I'm with him on drugs being pretty awesome if you have the money and the time for them.

meow said the dog is about as funny as a gimmick poster on The Onion AV Club, only twice as stupid and a quarter as funny.

MSTD: knock of that annoying, dreary, and eventually utterly pointless crap - it's the mark of a top level dim-bulb faecal spurt. Doubtless you could do much better, if you actually tried not be a text-based lobotomy delivered in the form of a nasty, false-humoured written suppository.

My girlfriends father, who I have known and respected for over 20 years, has been a lifelong Republican. He has been unemployed for about a year now and in recent conversations he is starting to see that being bootstrappy isn't as easy as he once thought. He is starting to understand that compassion is important. It is interesting to see.

So he only has empathy when he's in the situation and suffering? Fark him. If you can't put yourself in someone elses shoes and you have to suffer through it first to realize then you are still just as bad as before.

No, fark that attitude. Judge people for who they are, instead of looking for reasons why you're superior to them. Someone isn't born perfect but improves over time: fark them for not figuring it out earlier? No, fark that judgmental self-righteous crap.

Self righteous? How am I being self righteous? Iis it too much to ask for people to stop and put themselves in someone elses shoes whom they cannot directly relate personal experiences to? Self righteous crap is what conservatives throw out to everyone else, minorities, the poor, women, Muslims, atheists, etc. Until suddenly they have a gay son or daughter and maybe start becoming more inclusive. I say don't wait unti you are in their shoes otherwise society will never advance because too many people will never be in someone elses shoes, so stop making excuses for being short sighted and ignorant.

I say don't wait until you're in their shoes either. But I'm not going to say "fark you" to the people that finally do come around to being reasonable. Some people just don't take the time to really critically consider their positions until they're forced to by circumstance. We can wish that everyone was born enlightened, but they're not. Many people never come around. But I'm not going to spit in the eye of the person that finally realizes their beliefs might not be as solid as they thought. It seems far more productive to welcome them instead of denigrating them.
