  1. I think that President Obama should come out each day making some proclamation to which the Republicans must now be opposed. My suggestions to start are:

    – Babies are cute.
    – I like puppies.
    – Bacon is yummy.
    – Chocolate is good.
    – It’s nice to climb into bed with fresh, warm sheets.
    – Being on fire is uncomfortable.
    – You should say “thank you” to people who help you.
    – Hold the door for people (especially elderly ladies) behind you.

  2. Actually … I think I’m being funny, but since they managed to come out against good nutrition and exercise, I can’t even parody this.

    Why are we always throwing the baby out with the bath water? This is blaming a whole population for the extreme statements of a few bad eggs and both sides are doing this about equally if one listens carefully to both sides. This is a good example of where arrogrance can make us ignorant. I know a lot of conservatives and I don’t believe any of them are against good nutrition or exercise. Most simply object to the possibility of a tyrant telling them when to jump and how high. BTW, certainly a high number of Germans of the 1930s were happy with the Nazi Party actions. Ain’t hind sight wonderful?

    I have finally had a chance to read the subject article and I think most liberal bloggers have completely misread the intent of the writer. Nevertheless, it might have been better to simply point out the President’s rather poor use of our language to make his point. Also, some of the critics might well think about exactly what the opposite of “senseless” is rather grabbing the idea that the opposite is good or right. It’s hard to define it as senseless when it very well achieved the tyrant’s objective. Diabolitical might have been a better description.
