An open letter to my liberal friend...
My favorite liberal friend (one of the only ones I can stand, actually) left the following comment for me on facebook this morning:
How's the GOP gonna get the Evangelicals now that they
have a WOMAN running for VP? That's about as ludicrious (sic) as a black man
runnin' for PRESIDENT! ....a woman..with authority...that's a good
It was complete with her new profile photo, a McCain-Palin bumper sticker that had been photoshopped to instead read, "McCain-Gimmick." I started to leave a comment back for her on facebook, then realized this would take a little more space, so I'll jot my thoughts down here:
Someone asked me Saturday if I'd heard anything out of you since the Palin selection. I said, "No, she'll have to wait until after the weekend to have her talking-points fed to her."
In typical liberal democrat fashion, you manage to prove that it is the LEFT, not conservatives, who are closed minded, bigoted, race-minded slave-traders:
- "McCain-Gimmick?" Puhhhleeeease! If ANY Republican claimed the same about ANY liberal candidate, you people would be all over it. The double standard is (as always) obvious and laughable to any thinking person. Just last week you were emailing me extolling the virtues of the Hildabeast, who (unlike Gov. Palin) rose to where she (almost) got by riding on the coat-tails of her philandering husband as he spread his DNA across trailer parks all over the Bible-belt. Hillary is a weak woman; when an independent, strong, self-made woman comes along (exactly the kind YOUR side is supposed to be all in favor of) it doesn't take you long to break from your women's lib philosophy and attack, does it? Hmm... kind of reminds me of Clarence Thomas. "Wait! He's not OUR black dude! Attack! Attack!"
- You obviously have not spent much time around evangelical Christians, or you would know that Governor Palin is exactly the kind of woman they rally around. You see, Governor Palin was raised in a nice family life with two married parents, a warm and loving family, and a happy childhood with lots of friends. In other words, there were no neurotic incidents to turn her into a liberal. (Paraphrasing some conservative author I once read.) The left's inability to understand what makes the rest of America tick never ceases to amaze me. But go ahead and continue. If there's one thing I love, it's watching a liberal scratch their head when one of thier "sure thing" attacks falls flat.
- "... a black man runnin' for president..." huh? Again, it's the liberals who want to push Barry Obama's melatonin levels on us, not the conservatives. I could give a flying shit what color the man is... he's a leftist, and that makes his ideas 100% in opposition to mine. It's liberals, with their guided-by-feelings outlook on the world, who can't wait to vote for a black man, no matter the substance (or lack thereof) behind him. I seem to remember a real black leader mentioning something about the content of one's character instead of the color of his skin.
Take care of yourself. And keep registering those NoBama voters. (They aren't going to bother to show up at the polls, anyway.)
