Witchy Woman

[Posted by Jake]

There are few things in the world you can absolutely count on, but here's one:
If Bill Maher says it, it's probably wrong.

On MSNBC, that beacon of journalistic integrity, Maher ridiculed Christine O'Donnell for pointing out, in her recent Delaware Senatorial debate with "bearded Marxist" Chris Coons, that he was confusing the establishment clause, which is in the Constitution, with the separation of church and state, which is not.

This was a sophisticated observation, inexplicably ignored by the spoon-fed law school audience and the mainstream media. Could O'Donnell have explained herself better? Absolutely. One could even question, sadly, whether a modern political debate is the best place for this theoretical argument.

But a strict constructionist interpretation of the Constitution is a fundamental tenet of the Tea Party revolt against an overbearing and intrusive Federal government. Even a celebrity nitwit like Maher should have acknowledged that simple fact.

Let's face it...if Christine O'Donnell was a pro-abortion, global warming, big government apologist espousing Constitutional nuance in the context of a pre-election debate, the media sycophants and the NOW sisterhood would be tripping over themselves anointing the ascension of this next great liberal mind.

But since they disagree with her positions, Bill Maher and his condescending, elitist brethren will resort to petty cheap shots over style, rather than risk being exposed as intellectual posers by this "witch" with substance.

"We are a profoundly ignorant. People don't know anything about their own religions. We know little of our own history, let alone our history in context with the rest of the world. We worship sports heroes who torture dogs, but we point at scientists and laugh. A profoundly messed-up woman like Christine O'Donnell can run on a platform of "See? I can't manage my finances either. I'm you." We had eight years of a dry drunk as president because people thought he was the guy they'd want to have a beer with -- as if that were ever going to happen. Now there are people who would vote to give the nuclear codes to an aging high school mean girl because they'd like to fuck her -- as if that's ever going to happen. Smart people are regarded with scorn as "elites." Ignorance is regarded as a virtue.

This is how an empire dies. And we are going to be around to see it."

Harry Reid, "But for me, we'd be in a worldwide depression."

Nancy Pelosi, (Congress)"has to pass the (health care) bill so you can find out what's in it..."

Chris Coons can't name the five freedoms in the First Amendment.

Obama puts America $3 trillion in debt in just 24 months.

SEIU and NEA continue to coerce their members into dues that support the failing liberal agenda.

NOW supports Jerry Brown in California despite the fact that his campaign called his opponent, Meg Whitman, a whore.

If this is how an empire dies, then we all should hope for a revitalized America inspired by the people who demand a return to traditional values like integrity, frugality and freedom.
