Every family has at least one. You know the loud mouth who ruins family gatherings by calling all those who don't slobber over Rush's every word a communist. The "your against America" if you don't follow Bush with mechanical hero worship mantra you heard at the Labor day barbeque.
Mine...well mine is in a state of anger, bordering on panic, bordering on self delusion.
"stay the course" is over now. The catch phrase gap has begun. It's a lot like the cold war missile gap except this one is real. Without a catch phrase to rally around our followers, our Bush worshippers, don't have anything to say exactly. They have their marching order, but didn't get their talking points.
The argument has broken down. My neocon parrot has taken to bringing up the bumper stickers of old in a futile, but scripted, attempt at coming up with some argument, any argument.
"The weapons are in Syria", "Saddam gave money to terrorists", "freedom on the march", anything.....
It's a little sad to see their hope die, their undying love falter, their once proud idol turn to stone.
However, in their self pity and their, "it will get better", hope against hope. They are happy to continue to sacrifice the lives on innocent Americans. Day after day the bodies roll in, day after day it's more "it will get better".
How many dead Americans will make it better?
Oh right..."I'm against America" because I want to know the answer to a simple questions.
How many dead Americans are worth the installation of a Shiite dominated Islamic government in Iraq? I really want to know that answer. My neocon won't answer, he just attacks with, "you want the terrorists to win".
News flash, the terrorists are winning. WTF are you going to do about it?
"Stay the course". Oh right that's over now.
