Maybe I missed it Larry, but I went back and looked at your posts here and I can't seem to find anything that you've previously stated that wasn't name calling, ridiculing someone or simply agreeing with another liberal. Why stop being emotional and thoughtless with me. Go ahead, call me names like a child. I don't give others the power to offend me, unlike liberals. Its relatively easy to evaluate your level of intelligence based on the aforementioned. All emotion and childish inuendo with no substance to back it up, ie...typical liberal. If you presented an actual "evaluation" of anything, I missed it in your posts.
Fat fat water rat!

"A racist is anyone who wins an argument with a liberal."

That pretty much sums it up. Liberals are the least tolerant group in U.S. politics.

Not sure why the Post employs this ugly, obnoxious rightie bee-yotch, other than for comic relief.
I mean, listen to this tired, ridiculous boilerplate:
"David Brooks puts it as succinctly as anyone when he writes that “the entire Democratic governing vision, from President Obama on down, is based on the notion that we can have a growing welfare state and pay for it by taxing the top 2 percent.” This is impossible, as he notes, since there are not enough rich people to pay for all of that and you wind up with negative “long-term changes in social norms, behavior and growth.” The alternative is to raise taxes on everyone, which makes liberalism more honest but politically unfeasible."
No, idiotheads, if we have a "growing welfare state" at all it's because the GOPee and corporate Dems and Big Business have MOVED ALL OUR JOBS OUT OF COUNTRY for bigger profits. Less manufacturing base = fewer, lower-paying jobs = less in tax revenues = more in government payouts. Surely even dimwitted rightie twits like Rubin and Brooks could grasp these simple facts?
notice the utter lack of discussion of increasing revenues, cutting waste, cutting "Defense" (but I repeat myself), etc. Note the obsession with the "welfare state" and blaming it all on the poor and on minorities, while the wealthy and big corporations continue to get ALL sorts of tax breaks, privileges, etc. from these same folks.
Liberalism ran things just fine until the Reagan Reaction in the '80s, when the far right began to hijack government and the debate over how to govern. And with the religiuos right, the tea party, and Libertarians out there adding to the noise quotient, things are only getting worse. The GOPee actually seeks to DESTROY governmetn as we know it, no matter the effect on our economy and on Americans.
This article is disgusting, but typical of the crap the right is fililng the media with. The Post needs to dump this hag ASAP.
Jennifer Rubin is an American conservative columnist and a blogger for the Washington Post. Previously she worked at Commentary Magazine, the Pajamas Media, Human Events, and the Weekly Standard. She also published at Politico, New York Post, New York Daily News, National Review, the Jerusalem Post, and a variety of other media publications.

Rubin's political views are widely characterized as conservative. She was also called a supporter of Tea Party movement. She has opposed Barack Obama on multiple occasions, calling him “the most anti-Israel U.S. president (ever),” and writing that “Obama isn’t moderate, doesn’t like the free market, and isn’t interested in waging a robust war on Islamic fundamentalists.” Rubin consistently supports the Likud government and other conservative factions in Israel, and has been a harsh critic of Hamas and of the PLO leadership.

She a "blogger".

A teabagger "blogger".

Which means like the entertainers on FAUX, they can say and claim anything.

Opinions are not facts, unless you are a teabagger.
