Just musing.

Being a drug addict is a moral failing and a crime, unless you're a conservative radio host. Then it's an illness and you need our prayers for your recovery.

The United States should get out of the United Nations, and our highest national priority is enforcing U.N. resolutions against Iraq.
"Standing Tall for America" means firing your workers and moving their jobs to India.

The best way to improve military morale is to praise the troops in speeches while slashing veterans' benefits and combat pay.

Group sex and drug use are degenerate sins unless you someday run for governor of California as a Republican.

Providing health care to all Iraqis is sound policy. Providing health care to all Americans is socialism.

Global warming and tobacco's link to cancer are junk science, but creationism should be taught in schools.

A president lying about an extramarital affair is an impeachable offense. A president lying to enlist support for a war in which thousands die is solid defense policy.

Fifteen of the nineteen September 11 hijackers were from Saudi Arabia.
None were from Iraq. It was therefore imperative that we go to war with
since Saudi Arabia is our friend?

Trade with Cuba is wrong because the country is communist, but trade with China and Vietnam is vital to a spirit of international harmony.

The best way to create jobs is to lay off workers.

The best way to get people to "Believe In Wisconsin" is to denigrate it at every appearance.

You have to believe that America has never been in worse shape and that we must do all we can to not change anything.

You have to believe that an ex-VP like Al Gore should be marginalized and ignored but that an ex-VP like Dick Cheney should be treated as if he were the second coming of John Adams

This game is easy.

You have to believe that Arlen Specter is a man of no principle because he changed parties and that all union members are thugs but that Ronald Reagan, former Democrat and Union President was a better Republican than Lincoln.

You have to believe that Miss California facing public vilification for what she said is, somehow, a curtailment of free speech but that Wanda Sykes crossed some unwritten line and should be cast out from polite society.

They have to believe that President Obama is a jackbooted Fascist bent on enslaving us all and trampling those who get in his way while being too mushy to keeping torturing people, which we really never did anyway.

You've got to believe that it's evil enough to give taxpayer dollars to private businesses that you're willing to march on the Capitol and at the same time believe that the state is evil for not getting in a bidding war and cutting huge incentive checks to private businesses.

And lastly, After you work so hard to convince yourself that all Union members are evil thugs you have to reconcile these facts.

The crew of the Maersk Alabama is all Union. The pirates are not organized although the UFCW is handing out flyers.Chesley Sullenberger and his heroic crew are all in the Union. The geese were not organized.

The game of "you have to believe" gets even easier if you switch to the subject none of you people even want to talk about - because it's all taboo around here:

You have to believe that there is an entity - and only one - that never started, will never end, is not made of anything, knows everything, is everywhere and made everything. You have to believe that it made us evil out of infinite love, and now holds it against us. You have to believe that it is one although made of three parts, and that it decided that one part had to suffer and die to made the other feel better - provided you believe all of the above, without which you will suffer forever, burning without a body in an impossible eternal life in a hell created out of the same infinite love.

Playing "you have to believe" around these parts is skating on thin ice. Did I just hear the brains of 86% of a country exploding? "Hell" no. Dialog, anyone? Dare ya.
