And Their Opinions
I realized by just sitting here typing tonight that the folks who are most angry with Silly Sheehan and the Protest People are folks like my Moms. For all those with questions, my Moms represents the folks who are Fox News and Weather Channel junkies. A kidnapping in Aruba is more important to them than national security, they think folks like me are trying to destroy the country and want to tell me all about it when I'm trying to watch football.
That's your "Center?"
I'll show you who is middle America, Joe Six-Pack, ordinary guys and gals stuck in extraordinary situations and mad at Hell at people who really screwed up because they lived through the screw ups. The folks who hate PETA and FEMA and can give good reasons why. Go check GulfSails' deconstruction of what happened down in Louisiana, and find out what folks in the middle are really thinking about. Read the comments, too, if you really want an expose!
Let's see the right tell us how much safer we are these days now that the "National Security and Catastrophe Management Government" lost the first American metropolis since the Civil War. Let's see how many more "unprecedented" disasters can befall us with the right at the helm. Let's see the right tell us how moral they are in the midst of so much incompetent cronyism. Let's see the right sell us on how much more we need to worry about Silly Sheehan and the Protest People while we're drowning in standing water. Let's see Barbara Bush tell us to eat cake one more time down in the midst of catastrophe.
Which way will the Center go this next time? I think we're all wet, and it ain't all rain.
