Sleepy Time Thought: 4/13/2012 Greased Lightning Edition
You know how people use hyperbole to make a point in politics? Like when Rick Santorum made the claim that legalizing gay marriage could just possibly lead to man on dog marriage? Well, it doesn’t work so well in the other direction. Liberals would like to use hyperbole to show just how crazed the GOP has become but it’s become absolutely impossible. We’re so far down the slippery slope that the right swore we liberals were making up that it’s a struggle just to keep up with the ridiculousness, never mind get ahead of it.
For instance, Arizona just defined pregnancy as starting two weeks before a woman has sex. What could possibly be next? Should we start counting from the first time a couple kisses? Speaking of kissing, that, along with holding hands, is now considered a “gateway sexual activity” to be discouraged when teaching abstinence only sex “education.” Does that mean sharing a soda at the local burger joint might be naughty as well? What about singing a song about summer nights? Are John Travolta and Olivia Newton John now dangerous dealers in pre-sex sex?
Republicans are busy fighting pointless culture wars to distract their gullible and extremely hypocritical base. The same base that is more than happy to pronounce their moral superiority to anyone that is different while their bank accounts and retirement funds are looted by the 1%. They say a fool and his money are soon parted and conservatives have elevated it to an art form. And then they thank the people that robbed them blind for being such good Christians and passing laws to punish homosexuals.
Modern conservatism is a plague on the world.
Sleep tight you filthy liberal scum!
