You know what’s difficult?
Having such rational, fair-minded, intelligent opponents. That’s what’s difficult.
It’s hard to argue with people who present their opinions in such respectful, reputable, reasonable terms. I mean, what’s to be said in the face of facts stated so calmly and wisely?
Fortunately, Republicans don’t have to worry about that. We have the opposite problem…
Like down in Tampa, Florida at the Republican National Convention, where Code Pink crazies once again dressed up in giant vagina costumes and held signs saying: “Read my lips. Leave my vagina alone” and “GOP: Respect Women.”
Personally, I’d really rather not read their lips and would much rather them please put those things away. Why can’t they just act like normal liberals and stick to writing nasty tweets?
Samuel L. Jackson, for example, knows the drill. Yesterday, he took to Twitter complaining that he wasn’t “understanding God’s plan” – which was “unfair sh*t” – not to hit the RNC. Of course, he somewhat spoiled that class act less than half an hour later when he went back to tweet: “Apologies to God, Tampa, da GOP&Isaac(sp)! Who played the Race card?!”
No idea what he meant with that last line. Not that it matters much what he says one way or the other. Despite his epic ability to use the F-word, Samuel L. Jackson is really rather pointless.
So is Ellen Barkin, who looks something like Kari Matchett, who plays the no-nonsense boss on that really lame, badly acted, badly scripted show, Covert Affairs. (See how pointless she is?)
Ellen Barkin also climbed aboard a soapbox to retweet something somebody had tweeted to her. It read: “C’mon #Isaac! Wash every pro-life, anti-education, anti-woman, xenophobic, gay-bashing, racist SOB right into the ocean! #RNC”
Far less pointless – in fact, a definite “Oh Snap!” response – was what Bryan Kemper, Director of Youth Outreach for Priests for Life, took from that immature request…
“This is why we call pro-abortion people anti-life.” And he continued: “It is no surprise to me that the pro-abortion side would have things like this to say about other human persons. They already stand for the slaughter of innocent people inside the womb; why not expand that slaughter to outside the womb?”
Well stated. Only problem is that it’s rather wasted on such irrational, close-minded, unintelligent, disrespectful, disreputable, unreasonable opponents.
