So given that I have been obliged to use the term in the thread Quote of the Day since it appears that tongodeon seems to be unclear about his place in the cosmos, why not take the time to deal with the term.
First off, I find it a fun term, ranks right up there with the buzzphrase "draft dodger". I mean I can understand why so many who have not actually served in the military are so emotionally traumatized by it. I mean look at Senator's Kerry and Gore, who were such evil and ugly "draft dodgers", since, well, I mean, some how going to vietnam to serve in the military there does make them "draft dodgers". Whereas at Least Senator McCain's decision to sit out the "war" in the Hanoi Hilton establishes that IF you are going to do that whole "draft dodger" thing, at least avoid actually serving on the ground in the combat zone. Clearly a greater improvement in approaching the process of Doing the "draft dodger" thing. But of course, as I keep reminding folks, those of us old school tie Republicans did try to explain that perchance it was not a morally useful thing to worry about who did and who did not serve on active duty during the Failed Liberal Welfare Project In Vietnam. But of course, it was such an important whining point for the NeoCons, because, well, it sounds like they care or are concerned about veterans or service to country.
The real fun has been watching those who bought that skank.
Made Even MORE comical in the current WhateverOnWhomever. Since, golly gosh, gee whiz, now more than ever, those folks who could have followed their lip flappings into actual implementation specific details have, well, simply sat on their face CONUS.... Just like their Great Leaders did before them. It thus seems clear that either they were hypocritical for the last 20+ years - or they are fully consistent with the very draft dodger culture that they said that they were, well so upset about, except for the parts that they liked.... Like the Leadership of the NeoConClownCarCrew.
So as long as the NeoConClownCarCrew keeps dragging out their 'war president' and all of their 'war rhetoric' excuses, some of us from the old school tie Strict Constructionist School will keep asking, "and why are we more at war than before?" Not to mention our very ugly approach of, "and why are you still in the rear with the beer?" But that of course leads us into the problem of whether or not a strict constructionist school of constitutional law has ever been a part of the core values of the Republican Party. Hum... That and the idea of well, fiscal responsibility. Gosh if the nation is More@War, then of course there are those War Bond Drives to help fund the project AND keep down inflation. But that too complicates the process for those who are not too sure how to deal with either fiscal responsibility or constitutional law.
So of course we should retreat into the whole 'victimization culture' and deal with the massive and brutal persecution of our white christian america by those evil, well, gosh, golly... Why exactly are the folks who have so little faith in their Diety that they need to power of the state to protect them..... Oh that's right, the logical conclusion of the Argument From Intelligent Design that establishes the Divinity of the Greatest Military Leader EVER! It's not about advancing creationism, it is about establishing that the evils of Evolution are evil, and that they suggest or imply that there would be changes in the social order beyond those that were laid down by the Divine Will. So since the Argument of Intelligent design is not designed to advance Biblical Literalism, it is clear that the Divine Will Made Manifest is not required to lead to any notion of Christianity, and as such that the state is at liberty to establish any "civic diety" that is politically expedient.
Hum... gosh, that might not be nice. Since, well it would mean advancing the idea that the Church Of America might not need to even be a "christian" denomination, why it could be simple flat out Emporer Worshiping if the Department of Homeland Security thought that were in the best interest of National Security.
I guess I can see why the NeoConClownCarCrew has been so willing to rally around the talking point of "RINO" since, well those who are the old school tie republicans might not be their best friends. Especially those of us who served in the Military and have a Code of Honor that does not allow us to be mere party apparachniki supporting the current cult of personality....
But should we really allow that mere fact to impede the full on fun that comes with the RINO game?
So many of our liberal friends lump all republicans into one bundle. And by the law of excluded middle, there can only be those of us who are the TRUE REPUBLICANS and those who are alligned with the Draft Dodging Dope Smoking America Bashing God Haters who oppose the Divinity of The Divine Miss W!!!
As I like to say, "anything less and those Al-Qaeda Satanic Gay Homosexual Zombie Cyborg Piloted Iraqi Flying Saucers will return to impose excessive governmental regulation upon the very free market that won the cold war."
Now More Than Ever all TRUE PATRIOTICALLY CORRECTOR THAN THOU must rally to the Divinity of The Divine Miss W!!! or clearly one is a persecutor of the true faith and a RINO! Or worse yet, a supporter of Evil Doers!
Granted, we might step away from the Surrealist Community that is the NeoConClownCarCrew and return our seats to their upright positions and get back to the somewhat dull boring and tedious business of being americans and actually being pragmatic and practical americans.
