Cognitive Dissonance Reigns Supreme

OK. So Anthony Weiner is a dog.

I get that. But lots of men are dogs. This kind of idiotic crap goes on all the time. I know it’s a cliche – but it’s a cliche for a very good reason:  IT’S THE HYPOCRISY, STUPID.

Among all the things that are bugging me these days, one of the things that bugs me the most are all these sanctimonious, eyes-rolled-up-to-Heaven “Family Values” idiots who are constantly claiming to be superior to us heathen liberals by virtue of the fact that they’re Jesus’ special pets. Yes, Jesus loves them best, and the rest of us? Not so much.  And, simply because they’re Jesus’ special pets, they can do anything they damned well please – and say “Oops! Jesus, forgive me!” and poof! They’re forgiven. The score card is cleared and they get a mulligan.

Rush Limbaugh actually expects us to believe that *he* – poor thing – has an illness because he got himself hooked on hillbilly heroin (oxycontin) and obtained his drugs illegally – but he feels ever-so-superior to Anthony Weiner who – OH MY GOD!!! – tweeted a few naughty pics of himself to adult women on line. Oh, and by the way, according to Drugbaugh, everyone else who is addicted to drugs is a worthless, spineless criminal slug – and probably a liberal, to boot.  Can I get an eyeroll?

And all those sanctimonious Mormon folks in Utah… we all know how freaking holy they are; no coffee, no soda, women wear dresses (damned ugly ones, too) and they even have their “magic underwear”. So, with all that, would someone please explain to me why the state of Utah leads the nation in consumption of pornography…? Why is that?

You know what else just kills me?

We hear Republicans every single day weeping and wailing and gnashing their teeth about the debt, and blaming Obama for it. Jerks like “Flipper” Romney, Pawlenty, and all the other Tea Kluxers are always calling for less regulation. They demand that we cut programs that benefit the poor, the elderly and middle class Americans – and insist that we hand over huge wads of cash to the top 1% – the wealthiest people in the country.

The thing that gets me is that these Republicans are *actively* working against this country. They are *actively* obstructing programs that will help create jobs. They are throwing temper tantrums, and making threats: “Cut Medicare — or the country gets it!!”  They are literally holding our nation hostage – they’ll destroy this country unless we give them what they want.

And then you hear guys like Clark Howard on the radio, going on about the stock market slumping, angrily ranting about banks trying to cheat people out of their homes, that credit card companies are scamming their customers – do these people ever freaking *hear* themselves??

They want no regulation – and yet they complain that corporations cheat people?

They complain that stocks are falling – but they demand that the government do no spending to stimulate the economy?

They complain about homeless people, and even make laws against feeding them – do they ever freaking wonder WHY there are so many homeless people…??

These people are just crazy.
