My Mom is Getting Better at Interpreting Spin: Let's all get Better at It

My mom just passed this on, and all progressives likely agree that we have had enough of this shoved down our throats. Let's not let it happen anymore!

Well, after the recent State of the Union address, this seemed so appropriate.....
Being Republican Today You Have To Agree With The Following:

Jesus loves you and shares your hatred for homosexuals and Hillary.

Saddam was a good guy when Reagan armed him;
a bad guy when Bush's daddy made war on him;
a good guy when Cheney did business with him;
a bad guy when Bush needed a "we can't find Bin Laden" diversion.

Trade with Cuba is wrong because the country is communist but trade with China and Vietnam is vital to a spirit of international harmony.

The United States should get out of the United Nations and our highest national priority is enforcing U.N. resolutions against Iraq.

Woman can't be trusted with decisions about her own body but multi-national corporations can make decisions affecting all mankind without regulations.

The best way to improve military morale is to praise the troops in speeches while slashing veterans benefits and combat pay.

If condoms are kept out of schools then adolescents won't have sex.

A good way to fight terrorism is to belittle our long-time allies, then demand their cooperation and money.

Providing health care for all Iraqis is sound policy but providing health care for all Americans is socialism. HMO's and insurance companies have the best interests of the public at heart.

Global warming and tobacco's possible link to cancer are junk science but creationism should be taught in schools.

A president lying about an extramarital affair is an impeachable offense but a president lying to enlist support for a war in which thousands die is solid defense policy.

Government should limit itself to the powers named in the Constitution which include banning gay marriage and censoring the Internet.

The public has the right to know about Hillary's cattle trades but George Bush's driving record is none of our business.

Being a drug addict is a moral failure and a crime unless you are a conservative radio host. Then it's an illness and you need our prayers for your recovery.

You support states rights but the Attorney General can tell states what local voter initiatives they have the right to adopt.

What Bill Clinton did in the 1960's is of vital national interest but what George Bush did in the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s is irrelevant.

Feel free to pass this on. If you don't send it to at least 10 other people we're likely to be stuck with more Republicans in 2006 and 2008.


I will vote green and orange, too,--if God for bid--some Republicans get really moral for a change and lives out the scriptures in terms of treating their fellow men as Jesus told them , I will consider voting for one or two of them, too.
