It’s Perfectly Logical to Take Government Handouts While Simultaneously Ranting Against Government Handouts
Once in awhile I go surfing through some of my “favorite” rightwing blogs. It’s entertaining in a sick sort of way (what’s that say about me?), plus “Know Your Enemy” and all that. Afterwards I sit there feeling kind of dirty, and thinking “Why do I keep doing this?!?!?”
I found this yesterday at an unnamed unlinked site:
“I am sick to death of idiot liberals and stupid pundits making a big deal out of Republicans who rail against big government somehow benefiting from government services…It’s both inane and indicative of the fact that liberals just don’t get it; it is not government that conservatives oppose, it is big government that is at issue. The fact that the left has no clue as to the difference classifies them as first class morons. One can support Medicare, Social Security, and even some subsidies that are designed to encourage beneficial economic activity and still oppose Obamacare, FinReg, card check, and heavy handed interference in our schools from the Department of Education. There is no hypocrisy.”
(Incidentally, both of those above links are worth checking out.)
The same blogger also got into a writhing pantytwist when this columnist pointed out that a large part of Rick Perry’s “economic miracle” is the result of an expanding military presence in Texas, plus a lot of jobs that were made possible by Obama’s dreaded stimulus package.
Anyway, that was today’s glimpse into the teabag mind (or is that an oxymoron?). Now, aren’t you feeling sort of dirty?
