And We Were Just Heading Off to Lunch

posted by on September 3 at 10:02 AM


I thought McCain and the GOP were generally opposed to abortion and homosexuality? What do they have to repent for? Or is the problem that the GOP faithful keep nominating anti-choice candidates—and vetoing pro-choice VP candidates—and electing anti-choice presidents and appointing anti-choice Supreme Court justices and yet abortion remains legal in the United States? Is that the problem?

That van is strafing the RNC for the same reasons the anti-war protesters were at the DNC.

That and the driver is likely schizoid.

Oh, Poe, don't go there. We are a blue state. Liberals abound here; especially in St. Paul - home to many liberal arts colleges. The convention was bound to bring the freaks out of their little hidey holes. That said, I hope that damn truck doesn't drive by my house. *shudder*

What? You expect those people to pay attention to politics? They only care about/see results. Abortion is still legal, ergo, Republicans have to repent.

Re: Redefining the election

Our plans are succeeding. The various stories surrounding Palin center on motherhood and other cultural issues like life, and guns. These are distracting all liberal bloggers into a grenzy of culture wars. As discussed, when the election turns on culture, not the economy, the GOP wins. We have successfully distracted the entire media elite and all liberal bloggers into focusing on cultural issues rather than the economy.

During this period, we have driven out of the debate all discussion of foreclosures, joblessness, competition from China nd India, trade, lack of infrastructure investment in the USA and other issues which would make swing voters realize their economic interest lies in voting for BHO.

Just as in past election we have won, this refining politics to be "about" character, not policy, and culture, not economics, is our path to the White House.

Keep up the good work! Remember:

(1) it's the culture, stupid!
(2) we can fool the left everytime.

I'm from Minneapolis. Durr. And it isn't liberal, it's communist. I can't stand either side there.

These people are coming from Hastings or some shit.

Communist? Too funny! was supposed to be, right? Maybe they are in Minneapolis, but I'm firmly entrenched on the east side of the river. I spent a year on the other side and the driving alone was enough to send me running back. We are a liberal (Really? Communist? LMAO!) people over here. Well, except for that freak on Rice Street that told me I should be "at home making white babies" when he saw me in my military uniform...

They probably are commies. Most RNC operatives are.

It's the fifth columnist effect.

Do you have a higher resolution version? I can't read the smaller print.

This truck was in San Diego shortly after the gay marriage ruling came down in May. I was in San Francisco on June 16th when Del and Phyllis were married at City Hall. Then this truck was covered with giant pictures of men kissing on it with a red circle/slash over them. It circled city hall for hours at a time when gas was almost $5/ gallon in California. The truck showed up in some pictures the next day from the first day of gay weddings in Sacramento. Oh, he's crazy, there's no doubt, but that's one reliable Toyota.
