Liberals: GOP wants us dead

Well, you just can't reason with that level of nuanced, deep, intellectual thought processing, now can you? Full story here, excerpt follows:
Young liberals this week flocked to the nation's capital to hear, among other things, liberal television pundit and Democrat political strategist Paul Begala accuse Republicans of wanting to kill him and his children to preserve tax cuts for the rich.

Begala was featured at the first-ever Campus Progress National Student Conference, which was designed to provide campus liberals with the tools necessary to fight the conservative movement. The event also drew former President Bill Clinton, for whom Begala once worked as an advisor.

A panel discussion entitled "Winning the War of Ideas" centered on topics discussed in the book "What's the Matter with Kansas" by Thomas Frank and detailed the challenges that Democrats face in persuading voters in the American heartland and elsewhere to embrace their agenda and support their candidates.

Begala's presence on the panel created a stir when he declared that Republicans had "done a p***-poor job of defending" the U.S.

Republicans, he said, "want to kill us.

"I was driving past the Pentagon when that plane hit" on Sept. 11, 2001. "I had friends on that plane; this is deadly serious to me," Begala said.

"They want to kill me and my children if they can. But if they just kill me and not my children, they want my children to be comforted -- that while they didn't protect me because they cut my taxes, my children won't have to pay any money on the money they inherit," Begala said. "That is bulls*** national defense, and we should say that."
You just did say that, Paul. Too damned bad America doesn't trust you jerks to be tough on defense. Nothing says "We're pro-defense" like getting orally serviced by an intern when you're on the phone barking orders out to fight a war in Yugoslavia where there is no clear American interest. Or years of on-the-record cuts to defense spending. Or defending the most vile anti-American sentiments in the world (Sami al Arian, the U.N., the PLO, the ACLU). Or opposition to anti-USSR policies (when the USSR existed), wanting to rely on appeasement. Or fighting against counting military absentee ballots in Florida in 2000 because you're fully aware of how they're voting in the armed forces. Or...well, you get the idea.

I do feel nervous, though, that Paul Begala figured out Republicans. Now he knows their secret: they want liberal Americans to die so they can cut taxes and SS bennies! Run, GOP! He's got you nailed on this one! I tell you, if the electorate ever finds out this "truth", they'll run the GOP out of office for good!

Wait...the left has been running on these same tired lies about killing people, starving children, kicking old geezers out into the streets, etc., ever since they lost power in the 1994 elections. It's got them...where?

By the way, this book What's the Matter with Kansas is written by a Kansas liberal who doesn't understand why Kansas keeps voting for Republicans. It's this type of condescension towards the electorate and ignorance of social issues that will keep the liberals out of power for the foreseeable future.
