Now, do you see the exercise? The conservatives might even help out with this if they would show up and make their arguments. But if they don't show, it's no matter. We can do it ourselves. Come on you liberals, make me proud.

Lola:-

New thread eh?Being unfaithful already.Oh dear.
I expected some big long answers when I arrived this morning.

That's not conservatism.There's nothing there for a conservative to have anything to say about.A Conservative is another matter.Stalin was a Conservative.A bank account is conservative.Gee Lola-a purple hat is conservative,Female decor is very conservative.The facts of life are conservative.
Festering is really,serious small "c" conservative.So is nepotism.

I'm afraid I know more meek liberals than meek conservatives. I have met conservatives where there is something seething beneath the surface -- the fear that someone, somewhere is trying to take something away from them. Show me a meek conservative and I'll show you a Martian. But, of course, they are finding reason to believe their are some very low life forms on Mars.

(The only principal a conservative has ever come in contact with was when they were sent to his office in high school).

Oh, sorry. Had I known this thread was going to be based solely on the precept that conservatives were evil monsters who only like to intimidate the poor, innocent, wide eyed liberals, I would have not posted. Perhaps you could post a warning in the thread title or something. Perhaps "CAUTION: Only discussions pertaining to the 5 ridiculous accusations made in this cartoon will be allowed."

Best Conservative-Argument-Style-Facsimile Award Is Up For Grabs!

This is winner take all, folks. One prize only. And it's a dilly worth going to the mat for (whatever that means). Heck, it might be stupendous enough to make worthwhile a modicum of torture in any of the Pentagon 6 gulag gitmos conveniently spread about the globe. It might even be worth dying for, though we confess that criterion isn't what it used to be.

The winner (to be chosen by a panel of think tank experts and highly paid consultants) will receive an all expenses paid weekend leather getaway with Jeff Gannon and Foxfyre!!!


(offer not available to the friends or relatives of Carl Rove who've already had the weekend anyway)

Well, it was a tongue-in-cheek No. 2 because I do try not to classify people solely but what they say or write (some of it crazy talk, stupid talk) which is hard to do because if you lit a match the conflagration from the strawmen arguments going up in flame could be seen on Mars.

McG:-

Don't worry Mac.The conservative cause will be rigourously defended.
How can a liberal be meek?Mrs Thatcher was a liberal and you can't get less meek than that.All conservatives are naturally meek.They have nothing to get strident about.

There ain't nuthin' worth dying for.That's why I stay away from rivers.Too risky.Some silly bint might have thrown herself in as a gesture of indignation and that's not worth dying for.
