A Political Fantasy League

Share

The Pink Flamingo was thinking about politics and baseball. They are both related. Baseball has a fantasy league, so why can’t we have fantasy politics.

I have a dream.

Just think how much fun it would be to create my own version of hearing in the House. I could get to select who I wanted to take on the Dems, and interrogate them in a dog and pony show, humiliating them the way they do those poor souls they put on the hot seat.

There would be no opening statements. There would be no pontificating, only cold, hard questions. Those who are being interrogated must provide concrete answers or they will be held in Contempt of Congress (and they are contemptible).

Pardon Me While I Laugh (at Harry & the Dems)

Share

They are creepy and they are kooky!

Michael Medved, in the opening moments of his Monday’s radio show brought up a very salient point. We DO NOT want Harry Reid to resign. We want him right where he is, running for re-election. We want Harry Reid as one of the faces of the Democrats.

You gotta love the Dems. They are so very adorable, cute, and just plain fun to watch.

Then again they are creepy and they are kooky!

Politics, Evil, Mental Illness, and Perceptions

Share

There is a fascinating article in American Thinker by Andrew Thomas about the role of “evil” in politics. As a Christian I happen to believe there is such thing as evil, pure, unadulterated evil. As a thinking person I also know that almost all of what we consider “evil” is not actually “evil” but is mental illness, character disorders, and perception.

I disagree with Thomas’ perception of Democrats as “evil”. Democrats like Republicans have an agenda. Unless that agenda is abjectly intent on actual harm, it should not be defined as “evil” the way Thomas does. Thomas assumes anyone who disagrees with his political thesis is “evil”.

Having piddled around with politics since I was a little kid with my mother, I’ve met people good, evil, and indifferent. Some of the nicest people I’ve ever met in politics are Democrats and liberals. They are good people. We simply disagree on a political agenda. One of the worst acts of personal harm done to me (as an adult) was executed in cold blood. It was calculated. It was manipulated to do the worst possible harm to me – personally. The person who did it is still a very highly a “respected” conservative political operative, scholar, and writer. I am still dealing with the personal heart-ache this person created. The dirty deed was done over a decade ago and may never be repaired.
