  •  They'll just blame the "liberals" (9+ / 0-)

    I had a co-worker in 2005. One day we were reading the news together before work began and I mentioned a story about some Marines being killed in an amphibious vehicle in Iraq. The reason they were in an amphibious vehicle was because they didn't have an armored vehicle to be in. When I wondered aloud why that would be so, he huffed, "F***ing Liberals!". I pointed out that at the time, we had a Republican President, a Republican controlled Senate and House of Representatives and 7 out of nine Supreme Court justices were registered Republicans. Just where in the hell were the "liberals" he was whining about? He didn't have an answer for that but he didn't stop blaming us for deaths in Iraq. I think cognitive dissonance must be a requirement to be a conservative.

    "Given the choice between a Republican and someone who acts like a Republican, people will vote for a real Republican every time." Harry Truman
