Laughing My Ass Off...

At the puerile tantrums still being thrown by the Left over Karl Rove calling a spade a spade and simply pointing out the obvious truth about Liberals.

I love that quote so much - and the fact that it throws them into such a tizzy - that I've made it a permanent sidebar item, right underneath the Zell Miller quote.

The best part is that every stupid pacifist terrorist-coddling titty-baby comment made by MoveOn.org, Michael Moore, George Soros et. al. is there for the reading. Instapundit and Right Wing News have a few but there are so many more.

I hope every Liberal that hits my site sees that quote and loses it.

As Col. Jessup says "You can't HANDLE the truth!"

UPDATE: 10:41pm
Lorie Byrd has an excellent post about this silliness.

And on a side note: The Sully Alert has been upgraded by WizBang to RED - "Filled with heart-ache at such gobsmacking vileness"!

And for posterity's sake, here's the link to the speech, and here are some highlights:

We are seizing the Mantle of Idealism. As all of you know, President Bush is making a powerful case for spreading human liberty and defending human dignity. This was once largely the preserve of liberalism - but Ronald Reagan changed all that. It was President Reagan, you'll recall, who said the policy of the United States was not simply to contain Soviet Communism, but to transcend it. And we would, he argued, was because of the power of liberty...

..."Liberalism is at greater risk now than at any time in recent American history. The risk is of political marginality, even irrelevance.Â… [L]iberalism risks getting defined, as conservatism once was, entirely in negative terms." These are not the words of William F. Buckley, Jr. or Sean Hannity; they are the words of Paul Starr, co-editor of The American Prospect, a leading liberal publication...

...Conservatives believe in lower taxes; liberals believe in higher taxes. We want few regulations; they want more. Conservatives measure the effectiveness of government programs by results; liberals measure the effectiveness of government programs by inputs. We believe in curbing the size of government; they believe in expanding the size of government. Conservatives believe in making America a less litigious society; liberals believe in making America a more litigious society. We believe in accountability and parental choice in education; they don't. Conservatives believe in advancing what Pope John Paul II called a "culture of life"; liberals believe there is an absolute unlimited right to abortion...

...But perhaps the most important difference between conservatives and liberals can we found in the area of national security. Conservatives saw the savagery of 9/11 and the attacks and prepared for war; liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers...

...In the wake of 9/11, conservatives believed it was time to unleash the might and power of the United States military against the Taliban; in the wake of 9/11, liberals believed it was time toÂ… submit a petition. I am not joking. Submitting a petition is precisely what Moveon.org did. It was a petition imploring the powers that be" to "use moderation and restraint in responding to theÂ… terrorist attacks against the United States."...

...Let me put this in fairly simple terms: Al Jazeera now broadcasts to the region the words of Senator Durbin, certainly putting America's men and women in uniform in greater danger. No more needs to be said about the motives of liberals...

...[I]t is also a cautionary tale of what happens to a dominant party - in this case, the Democrat Party -- when its thinking becomes ossified; when its energy begins to drain; when an entitlement mentality takes over; and when political power becomes an end in itself rather than a means to achieve the common good. We need to learn from our successes - and from the failures of the other side and ourselves. As the governing movement in America, conservatives cannot grow tired or timid. We have been given the opportunity to govern; now we have to show we deserve the trust of our fellow citizens...

...At one time the conservative movement was largely a reactionary political party - and there was a sense of pessimism even among many of its ardent champions. You'll recall that Whittaker Chambers, who gave up his affiliation with Communism to join the West in its struggle for freedom, said he believed he was joining the losing side...

...For decades, liberals were setting the agenda, the pace of change, and the visionary goals. Conservatives were simply reacting to them. But times change, often for the better - and this President and today's conservative movement are shaping history, not trying to stop it.
