Conservatism unaffected by Conscience

I suppose if your criticism of the Obama Administration's drone policy is that it isn't used on enough weddings and funerals, making an 11-year old girl cry is a piece of cake (that you yank out of a child's hands of course).

Rep. Scott DesJarlais (R-Tenn.) told an 11-year-old girl who spoke out at a town hall meeting last week that her undocumented father should be deported, saying "we need to follow" current immigration laws.

Of course, given DesJarlais' history, deporting the father means one thing quite clearly...the mother is available.

They’ve saddled up the crazy for one more ride.

We're assured this will be the last time.

Conservatism is, by definition, not having a conscience.

I'm so old I remember back when the entire menagerie of Reich-wing racists, crackpots and borderline mentally-ill religious freaks demanded that 6-year old Elián González not be returned to his father in Cuba.

There is never enough bad acid to keep up with conservatives.

Ther are no conservatives anymore. The Republican/Teabagger party is in the thrall of Reactionary Regressives.
