why the left keeps losing

This post is a year old, but the mindset it reflects never changes. Ask me again why the left keeps losing elections.

The people clapping as the troops ship out in 2005 clap because they know that the war is fucked beyond recognition and because of their own, personal guilt over being part of the electorate that put this damned Kriegsmaschine in power (twice!) that is now turning our youth into splatter from IEDs.

Huh? I never realized my real reasons for applauding our troops until the "Donkey Hottie" psychoanalyzed me. I thought I applauded because I wanted to show my support and acknowledge their courage, committment and dedication. Boy, was I mistaken.

Anyone who supports an actual, moral, culture of life canít respond to sending troops to death in Iraq with applause, only with indignation.

Or by being furious and then weeping, as the writer did, just before launching into a typical leftist stream-of-consciousness screed of psycho-babble. Just damn! If the writer received such a barrage of vivid imagery and symbolism from a fucking beer commercial, I shudder to think what psychic overload a decent book might cause.

But what do I know anyway? I must be a member of that "seeming majority of Americans who want a theocracy." See what I mean about psychic overload? That's why the left doesn't win elections.

Too many furious, weeping, psychic dingbats on that side.

I knew you would rise to the occasion. Very well said. Personally, I was too dumbstruck by what I read to formulate a cogent sentence.

Yesterday I attended a military funeral of a 21-year old soldier, Pfc Caesar Viglienzone. No problems at the service. Afterwards, at the reception at the VA hall, there were people protesting about the illegally declared war. If that wasn't bad enough, they asked people to honk if they agreed. Yep, the dimwits of northern California were out in force. I have never been so ashamed of my state as I was yesterday. You have the right to protest but damn it all to hell, no one has the right to add to the pain of a grieving family.

I'd love to see what is considered a 'Donkey Hottie", but alas, I could find no pic. Probably just as well.
