The title is unrelated to this post- it's just supposed to make you laugh.
I've not been keeping up on the news lately, but apparently Tom DeLay called Obama a "Marxist" last week, and got in trouble for it. I got caught up in my email today and read about the episode in Gary Bauer's daily email update:
"Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, who was nicknamed “The Hammer,” spoke to the Washington Times recently about the current political environment and the stakes confronting conservatives in 2008. In his usual blunt and non-politically correct manner, DeLay offered some harsh criticisms of Obama’s radical agenda, which, in my view, underscore the importance of conservative unity in the days and weeks ahead."
"I’m a member of [the Second Baptist Church in Houston] because they reflect my values, my understanding of my faith, and I love listening to Ed Young preach because he is challenging me about the values that I hold dear. ...The only thing I can assume in trying to analyze Barack Obama is, he was a member of a church for 20 years that believes in black-liberation theology, which everybody knows is a Marxist-humanist religion, preached, I assume, because it’s the worldview of the church, every Sunday. If his values are the church’s values, then he must support black-liberation theology; therefore, he is a Marxist-humanist."
I think Mr. DaLay said it right. Obama is a scary man, and as Samuel Adams said, "The public cannot be too curious concerning the characters of public men." It also seems like Obama can't stand under any sort of pressure. I hope he gets pounded in these last few month before the election, so people can see how he would handle a situation even less serious than a phone call.
And Mrs. Obama is just as bad as her husband:
"What's with the Democrats, anyway? It's bad enough that they keep coming up with creepy candidates for president, but look at their idea of a first lady. Hillary Clinton, Teresa Heinz-Kerry and Michelle Obama, remind me of the three witches in 'Macbeth,' but without their cooking skills." ---Burt Prelutsky
Another quote for the times:
"The Grecians and Romans(insert Liberals and Democrats) were strongly possessed of the spirit of liberty but not the principle, for at the time they were determined not to be slaves themselves, they employed their power to enslave the rest of mankind."

Here's another issue:
"The foundation of national morality must be laid in private families. . . . How is it possible that Children can have any just Sense of the sacred Obligations of Morality or Religion if, from their earliest Infancy, they learn their Mothers live in habitual Infidelity to their fathers, and their fathers in as constant Infidelity to their Mothers?"
- John Adams (Diary,
I didn't mean for this to be a depressing post- I just wanted to use all these great quotes I found while cleaning out my inbox!
