Dispatches From The Neoconservative Father, Round 7,365,978


My Daddy ONCE AGAIN sends an email to his list o' LIBRUL HATIN' bretheren, and of course adds me to said list. This one is that widely circulated tale of how Barack Obama is a RADICAL MUSLIM, BLAH BLAH BLAH RARR!! *FROTH*FROTH*FROTH*...

There's a part of me that has to wonder if he's not deliberately trying to get me to kick him in the ass for sending me this tripe, because all I need to do is click twice, maybe, and blow his shit out of the water with these nifty things I picked up somewhere called COMMON SENSE, LOGIC, REASON, AND TRUTH, otherwise known as conservative kryptonite.

When will he ever learn? Probably never - yeah, that would be the right answer. But I'm the only person in my entire family that will go toe to toe with him on an issue and never back down, no matter what it might cost me. It's called a standard for a reason, people - you're the same with everyone in your life, or you're a fucking pussy and you're not to be trusted with anything sacred or serious.

I never ask him to stop sending me emails - even if he knows I'm not interested in the subject and he knows that - I take responsibility for myself and read or not and reply or not should I choose to. This was me thinking that the subject of "Interesting Information" wouldn't be loaded with this kind of bullshit. W-R-O-N-G!

So here's what he sent and here are my responses to it.

[EDIT 12:40AM]
He's responded, and so have I. It's starting to get good again.

Pat Robertson: 'I’m A Complete Moron'
Earlier this week, Christian broadcaster Pat Robertson said God told him who will win the 2008 presidential election. “He told me some things about the election, but I’m not going to say,” he said.

Last night, Robertson appeared on Hannity and Colmes. When asked by Alan Colmes whether God had spoken to him about the election outcome, Robertson said he was “a little shaky on it” and was “not sure.” But Robertson then implied God told him a Democrat would win the White House:
COLMES: You said that you convene with God on a regular basis. You go into deep prayer and mediation, and you just recently say to you was revealed who would be the winner in November. Is that correct?

ROBERTSON: I felt so. But I’m a little shaky on it and I didn’t want to say anything about it publicly. I’m not sure I heard from the Lord. And if I did, I hope I heard wrong.
Sean Hannity then followed-up and asked who Robertson heard would be President. “I’m not saying publicly Sean,” Robertson replied. “
My lips are sealed
.” Watch it:

In 2004, Robertson claimed that the Lord told him it would “be like a blowout” re-election for President Bush. Bush, however, received just 51 percent of the vote that November. In 2006, he incorrectly predicted that “the outcome of the war and the success of the economy will leave the Republicans in charge.”
