Annals of Inanities -- Liberals Edition: Dissent is Now Unpatriotic, Repubs Are Always "Extreme," & Will Race Trump Sexual Tilt at McDonald's?

Republican Dissent is Unpatriotic:  Remember when liberals proclaimed dissent to be the highest form of patriotism?    Remember when being anti-war was the moral high-road?  Remember when kinetic military actions in a petroleum-rich Muslim country was just a war for oil?  Remember all the vicious anti-war protests?  Well, that was during the Bush/Hitler/Darth Vader/Haliburton administration.  Now wars are OK.  A virulent hateful ultra-liberal speaks up (link) about Obama's Libyan war:  "Republicans are attacking the Commander-in-Chief during a time of war! . . . There should be no debate: we should be kicking [Gaddafi's] ass . . . Whose side are you on, Sarah: are you with the terrorists, Sarah, or are you with the President of the United States? . . . Where's the patriotism of the Republican party? . . ."  This is what liberalism is to many -- a principle-free 24/7 all-politics zone.  You can't make this stuff up.

Democrat Schumer Being Honest:  Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York, the No. 3 Democrat in the Senate and a vicious liberal partisan, lets the cat out of the bag in an open mike flub, which even the liberal New York Times felt compelled to report(link):  'apparently unaware that many of the reporters were already on the line, [Schumer] began to instruct his fellow senators on how to talk to reporters about the contentious budget process.... Schumer told [fellow Democrat Senators] to decry the spending cuts that [Republican Rep. Boehner, the Speaker of the House] wants as extreme. “I always use the word extreme,” Mr. Schumer said. “That is what the [Democrat] caucus instructed me to use this week.”'  Jay Homnick at The American Spectator comments (link) on Schumer: "To me he is the Bernie Madoff of moral capital. He got all the Orthodox Jews to invest their moral capital with him and he cleaned them out."

Watch liberals' heads explode -- does race trump sexual orientation, or is it the other way around?:  Black girls feel disrespected and so beat the crap out of a transgendered man (link).  Although my observation in these situations is that the race card trumps the homosexual rights card, these two factors more or less cancel each other out, so that not much will come of this from the liberal grievance lobbies.
