Our friends at Free Republic have a new appellation for us, yep, you got it, the vile democrat hate site.  Apparently we are all Godless homos.  And some of the comments -- to die for!

-- Markos is a twerp as are his followers.
-- This guy was actually in the Army? The same Army I was in? And has the biggest left-wing website that there is?
-- Yes, but he went in after DADT (Don't Ask Don't Tell). He joined just so he could see all the naked soldiers in the showers every morning and maybe score once in awhile.
These folks don't seem to know Markos very well.  For instance, they seem unaware that he governs our every waking thought from his orbiting psychotronic mind control ray broadcast platform.  Or something like that.

Now, what I figure is that our Free Republic brothers and sisters are a bit perturbed to learn that according to Nate Silver, Obama is now at the highest chance of winning the election, at 76.3% to the RomneyBot's 23.6%.

Our own Delilah has a fine straightforward diary, in which she suggests that if you ever find yourself discussing politics with a conservative republican, your conversational tenor should be governed by the response to this question:

Am I the jack-ass whisperer?
But sometimes I think I am the jack-ass whisperer.  People have a right to be wrong.  And our friends over at Free Republic, well, they are liberally exercising their that right.

I think it would be hard to be a Freeper, or a Paulista.  You'd have to be looking for Godless gun-grabbing commies everywhere, all the time.  But worse, there's the problem of the hopelessness of the conservative philosophy, which basically asserts that human culture, civilization, art, etc. has reached its limit, and no organized effort can or should attempt to improve things.  

What conservatives have is fear.  What they need are dreams.  In that spirit, let's hear from the magnificent Roy Orbison.


Do you think you could ever be a conservative?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
