A Shred of Decency
I can't help but wonder about the many people in America who are "conservative" in outlook, who do what they can everyday to make their world a better place, to help others, to improve our society and enrich our culture--and who facepalm everytime Rush Limbaugh or Newt Gingrich or Ann Coulter appear as a talking head and groan, "Oh, god, not again!" Can you imagine being saddled with such cretins? Everytime they try to propose fiscal responsibility, up pops Rush Limbaugh? Or when debating educational reform there arises from the crypt Newt Gingrich? Or examining the value of social services Ann Coulter fouls the well? It may be the real danger of these neo-con icons is not regression but paralysis. Stagnation.
