Muth's Truths, 11/14/04


Conservatives can’t help but enjoy the pain and agony running through the ranks of Democrats, assorted Hollywood liberals and “old media” left-wingers over the November 2 results. As is pointed out in my soon-to-be released book on the 2004 election - “Ketchup With Your Crow, Mr. Moore?” - the left pulled out all the stops and stopped at nothing in their effort to win at any cost.

They funneled money from wealthy Bush-hating liberals into the pockets of anti-war front groups who used the money to register voters who, in many cases, weren’t legally eligible to vote...including Mary Poppins and Dick Tracey.

They lied about Bush lying about WMD’s. They over-hyped the Abu Ghraib “abuse” story. They manufactured a story about missing munitions. And they buried the story about John Kerry maybe not getting an honorable discharge from the military until Jimmy Carter “pardoned” him.

Speaking of which, they tried to make a stink about President Bush’s fully-disclosed military service records while steadfastly refusing to release Sen. Kerry’s. Dan Rather and CBS even went so far as to use some “doctored” Bush records to try to make a story out of a story that wasn’t there.

John Kerry made claims of meeting with “foreign leaders” who he claimed were backing him...only he refused to name any names. The only one David Letterman could come up with: Queen Latifah.

They threatened college students with false stories about President Bush bringing back the military draft...even though it was DEMOCRATS in Congress who had actually introduced such legislation.

They ransacked GOP offices, vandalized cars, beat the tar out of a cop at the GOP convention, ripped a Bush sign out of the hands of a 3-year-old sitting on her daddy’s shoulders, slashed tires, kicked, pushed and shoved. Hey, remember Al Franken tackling that Howard Dean heckler in New Hampshire?

They assembled an army of legal vultures who hovered over the election just waiting to swoop down and snatch any close victory away from Republicans. Fortunately, the election results were outside the “margin of litigation.”

John Kerry dressed up as a hunter for Halloween in an attempt to (a) make people think the gun issue is about hunting, not self-defense, and (b) make people think he was actually a friend of gun owners despite his abysmal gun rights record. Talk about an “October Disguise.”

They used a fake voice for an automated phone message falsely telling voters that Gen. “Stormin'” Norman Schwarzkopf was endorsing John Kerry. If Schwarzkopf ever finds out who did that, you can bet they’ll need the jaws-of-life to remove the boot from where the general is going to stick it.

In essence, the other side’s campaign can pretty much be summed up in three words: Lie...Cheat...Steal. And they wonder what “values” people are talking about? Totally clueless.

On the other hand, all this fear-and-loathing about “Jesusland” and the rise of the religious right isn’t completely without merit. Unfortunately, ordinary American church-goers are being broad-brushed into the “Crazy Christian” camp of folks such as Joe Glover, president of an organization called the Family Policy Network. You see, Joe’s really steamed at President Bush. Why? I’ll let him explain...

“The day after George Bush was elected president again, because of this morals revolution taking place in our country, he allows his vice president to not only put his lesbian daughter on the platform, but to bring her lesbian 'partner' up on the stage with him,” Glover laments. “It almost seems to be a slap in the face from the get-go against the very conservatives that re-elected the president at a time when he ought to be paying them some homage and respect."
Yes, the Chicken Little left is running around yelling, “The Christians are coming! The Christians are coming!” But un-Christian, un-American, homo-centric wing-nuts like Joe Glover - who get their knickers in a knot over the gay daughter of the Vice President of the United States joining her father on a victory stage - are giving the rest of us mainstream live-and-let-live Christian conservatives the bad rap.

It’s not just the Democrats who need to reassess their “values.”

If a school tells a student (a child) not to do cartwheels, then the school must back up that order with some sort of discipline. Learning there are consequences to disobeying rules is an important, no an essential part of growing up.

Chuck, that was as succinct and accurate a description of the events of the past few months as I have seen anywhere. Fair and balanced, too, as you included a criticism of the intolerant Christian loonies, too!
