Well, I gave him all the chances in the world.. now I’m going to knock him over the head with his own rigid, unwavering, unabashed, damaged train of thought.

I hope this note finds you safe on your umpteenth tour of duty in Iraq, making the world safer from dictators, terrorists and planting the seeds of freedom and winning hearts and minds, all while ‘staying the course’.
Oh wait… nevermind.
I could make a multitude of comments, observations or jokes about any of the above but I’m gonna stick to what I came here for. You stubborn refusal to accept reality and the conviction of your feelings over facts. Well, it’s time to use your own arguments against you.
On [Thu Nov 4 2004 02:01 PM] on the blog post [Horribly Devastating.php] you wrote such infamous quotes as:
” The American people have given this president a mandate..”
“..proves to the world that WE ARE UNITED behind our President in the war on terror.”
“..American people collectively knocked you off your high horses and showed you where the real power in America is.”
51%, and you came to all those conclusions above.
Everyone then collectively tried to reason with you… me, Dave E., Tom, Johan… you’d hear none of it. 51% of the country, the greatest 51%, the moral 51%, the up to date and educated on the issues 51% of the country voted and spoke with ONE VOICE for everyone else. That was fine by you.
Then we had the Ned Lamont fiasco… where he took the whopping 54% of the vote. But in this case what was good for the goose was not so good for the gander. You even had presence of mind to remind all of us good folk that we “..all like to pound on my head <4% does not make a mandate make!” [Sun Aug 13 2006 10:00 PM – Political Earthquake.php]
Here I actually thought you had matured, grown as a person, able to reflect on the past and critically think! I offered the hand of friendship, agreed with your post because you HAD MADE an intelligent post. We did berate you for it, it would be suspect of us to not make the same allowance for the Lamont victory. But like a person going to a priest for confession, it’s not the amount of penance the priest assigns you, or that you spoke to a priest at all, it is that you actually feel sorry/guilt or grief for the wrong you caused and are truly looking for forgiveness. To ask a priest to forgive you for adultery at 10am when you have a appointment with your neighbors wife in an hour does not atone you for your prior misdeed, in fact it condemns you further. And this is the path you chose NJ…
Consider you final remark on the matter while responding to my post. Here it is for clarity so there is no error in judgment…[Thu Aug 17 2006 11:49 PM - Political Earthquake.php]
“I stand by what I wrote when Bush won in 2004.”
I didn’t know if I should laugh or cry for it, in the end I had to flip a coin, laugh, print off your remarks and your twisted logic for all my friends to see that there are actually people like you that do exist on this planet. It is truly terrifying to consider there are many more ‘critical thinkers’ like you that have amassed in the heartland/biblebelt/jesusland of America.
In case all of this was too much for you to disseminate, let me ‘dumb’ it down for you..
-Bush wins 2004 election 51%
-you claim it is a mandate and all Americans are united
-we counterclaim it is not, you call us sore losers
-Lamont wins by 54%, we claim it’s a mandate
-you disagree and use our claim that 51% was not a mandate
-I agree with your logic
-you destroy your own argument and lose claim to use the percentile defense with your defense of the original claim.
I find it sad that I felt I have to do this. You already knew all of the above, so did everyone else. But seeing it laid out from start to finish, seeing how you get from point A to B, the depths you will go to… it’s like watching a healthy cow die from Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy. You really feel for the animal during the final stages.
So now we have 51% of the public wanting the ‘war’ president impeached. 51% NJ. I am now going to use your logic NJ. 51% of the American people, are speaking out in one voice, truly united. Let’s all drop the partisanship now that we’re united and go do the right thing… impeach the m()!#%7u(|<#r!
Or should I start feeling sorry for you?
