OPINION

Who's a conservative?

And who just calls himself one?

By Paul Greenberg

This article was published September 20, 2017 at 2:53 a.m.

Rush Limbaugh--yes, he's still going around and around on your radio dial. True to his name, he's still rushing in where angels fear to go. And he still tends to leap to every conclusion in sight except the sensible one. Just the other day, he decried the rush of anyone with good sense and/or a good memory to get out of Hurricane Irma's blustering, shattering and battering way and head for higher ground.

What a bunch of drivel. All that needs to be said is that CONservatives gave us this abomination of a president.

I agree BM. Greenberg's ode to conservatism is about as useless as they come. Just looking at his points, you can find gross exceptions to almost all of them invoked by so-called conservatives today. Conservatives like to project an image, yet hardly live up to it in their daily practices. Opposition to government power? Maybe so, except to enforce their social views.

What a fawning pile of the old smelly.
By the way, the folks who fought the Revolutionary War on our side were Liberals.

Rush is the archetype of today's conservative Republican...a bloviating, blustering bully.

"But what, El Rushbo worry?"
*
El Rushbo tells us we don't need to worry about rising water or hurricanes. But El Rushbo is full of it and El Rushbo floats.
Kudos to Paul Greenberg for pointing out the consistent wrongness and hypocrisy of El Rushbo and for pointing out that stormy blowhards like El Rushbo are not conservatives.

Based on the pithy comments from the common libtwits on this thread Mr. Greenberg nailed it. Nice job Mr. Greenberg. Very nice.

Ah a great case of special pleading.

I say PG beware of using syllogisms;
--All mammals exhibit homosexual behavior,
A conservative is a mammal!

the super sensitive, You sure lost us there PG with any hope of a rare loss of bias, as the tears of many exist in the conservatives if questioning their evidently divine knowledge kept from you or I. Saying that the word dragon , does not mean dragons exist.

So since with all my passion and my skill,
the world's mysterious meaning mocks me still,
Shall I not piously believe that I
Am kept in darkness by the heavenly will?

Pack, without actually providing any detail you follow the "if they're against it, I'm for it" low intelligence model. Hmmm. And you wonder why I say the things I do about the Trump demographic.

Looking over the comments from the "progs", I'm thankful that those THUD-infected losers no longer have their grubby little hands anywhere near the reins of power.
Embrace the suck, losers, and welcome to Oblivion!
