Barack Obama, our next President

“What Conservative Media Bubble?” Says the Conservative Still Inside the Bubble

They thought they were running against another Carter, and discovered too late that people outside their coalition didn’t see him that way. If your candidate’s core message is that the incumbent is a huge failure, and most voters don’t know what you’re talking about, he was never likely to overcome the disadvantages of being a challenger.

And it would seem that within that bubble there is a Topix bubble.

What Is The Point Of Telling Ugly Truths?

“What is the point of telling ugly truths? Don’t you know it will hurt people? What good can come from it?”

The value of truth is self-evident. The pursuit of it needs no explanation.

Some ask the question from genuine motives. They sincerely don’t, or can’t, see the value in exposing pretty lies and ugly truths. And they want to know,“Where’s the Benefit?” One such topic of discussion which often elicits this bristled reaction is honest discussion about average human population groups differences (along numerous metrics). I understand the urge to silence, or cavalierly dismiss, open discussion of this topic. The human ego is the most powerful force in the universe, more powerful even than the female tingle. We are constructed of origin material that impels us to wrap our senses of self-worth in the neuronal equivalent of three foot steel-reinforced concrete bunkers, and to associate, no matter how unjustifiably, attacks against our tribe as judgments on ourselves.

I get it.

And… you know what? I don’t care.

Not anymore.

Not when the opposite of the truth — the filthy, acrid lies we here have been choking on for fifty years or more in this country — has been, and continues to be, used as a cudgel to bludgeon the skulls of the favored whipping boys and to take a huge steaming dump on reality.

If liberal women had come out and said they would use free contraceptives to stop aborting their unborn babies, it would have changed the whole dialogue.
An excellent point, carol.
I would hardly limit the responsibility for having done so to liberal women, however. Conservative women obtain abortions too. Some folks seem to 'forget' that part.

Like Petraeus's mistress, for example.

It's all in the perspective, carol.

JESUS WOKE ABOUT TEN O'CLOCK SATURDAY AN' PROCEEDED TO FALL FLAT ON HIS FACE. HE'D GOTTEN REALLY DRUNK, HE WAS TIRED OF LIVING WITH HIS PARENTS AND HAD FALLEN ASLEEP ON HIS WORKBENCH AMIDST THE WOOD SHAVINGS AN' OTHER DETRITUS OF A WORKING CLASS LIFE.

THE FLOOR OF THE SHOP WAS LITTERED WITH EMPTY WINESKINS AN' HE CRAWLED FROM ONE TO THE OTHER SQUEEZING OUT THE LAS' FEW DROPS OF CHEAP PLONK HE'D TRADED MORTECAI THE WINE-MERCHANT FO', FO' "HEALING" HIS TEENAGED DAUGHTER.

IT BLEW JESUS' MIND THAT MORTECAI STILL THOUGHT THAT JESUS SPENDING ALL NIGHT LOCKED IN THE STABLES WITH THE SCREAMING FULL-BREASTED GIRL WAS SOME SORT OF MIRACLE CURE FOR HER OCCASIONAL DEPRESSION, BUT IT CLEARLY WORKED SO MORTECAI SANG JESUS' PRAISES ROUND THE NEIGHBORHOOD AN' IT WASN'T TOO LONG BEFO' JESUS HAD A PRETTY GOOD DEAL GOIN' FO' HISSELF "HEALIN' "SICK GIRLS," ONE OF WHOM HE HAD ACTUALLY "BROUGHT BACK TO LIFE," IT WAS RUMORED. NONE OF THE OTHER PEOPLE OF THE VILLAGE HAD EVER SEEN JESUS WORKING HIS "MIRACLES," BUT THEY HAD ALL, CERTAINLY, HEARD HIM DOING IT, AND THEY HAD BEGUN TO TREAT HIM LIKE A GOD, WHICH, IN A WAY, HE WAS.

BUT, RIGHT NOW, JESUS WAS HUNG OVER AN' IN A FOUL HUMOR AN' NEEDED A DRINK. WOE BE TO HE WHO GOT UP IN JESUS' FACE THIS DAY, I CAN TELL YOU.

Really great thinking to have all the Faux talking heads and even Rush suddenly decide that Obama's plan for immigration reform is better that "self deportation." Big problem with the reich-wing loonies is their belief that everyone is as brain dead and gullible as they...how much was it that Karl Rove took them for? LMAWLEAO

The truth is that men cheating is not tied to either party.

Face it, men have a brain & a penis and only enough blood to run one at a time.

Some men are hounds out there sniffing everything in sight & some are just unable to resist the temptations put in front of them.

Sometimes sh*t just happens & two people fall in love.

<quoted text>Damnit, dumb carol, I didn't think you could get any more ignorant, but apparently there's not bottom to you. Have you also started listening to Rush? Do you see no illogical reasoning in your nattering diatribe? Wouldn't free birth control obviate the need for most abortions?(You reichies can't use the term fetus to save your lives, right?)
There is a big difference between having prescription insurance cover birth control and providing government-provided birth control. Don't you want your insurance to pay for your medical needs? Do you even pay for you own insurance. Frankly, I know you know nothing about "liberal women" and doubt you know anything about being a woman at all.(BTW, the word is spelled epitome, Dummy. Tell us some more about your illustrious careers.)
You reelected a president who has no reservations whatsoever about killing a baby coming out of the birth canal with a pair of scissors stuck into the back of its neck.

You must be proud.

Of course he did. He didn't want to let a good crisis go to waste. He saw big government written all over it.

It's why millions still don't have jobs and millions more are still government dependent.

It's only going to get worse. Brace yourself.
