Political Irony

1.) Jesus loves you, and shares your hatred of homosexuals and Hillary.

2.) Saddam was a good guy when Reagan armed him, a bad guy when Bush's
daddy made war on him, a good guy when Cheney did business with him, and
a bad guy when Bush needed a "we can't find Bin Laden" diversion.

3.) Trade with Cuba is wrong because the country is Communist, but trade with China and Vietnam is vital to a spirit of international harmony.

4.) The United States should get out of the United Nations, and our
highest national priority is enforcing U.N. resolutions against Iraq .

5.) A woman can't be trusted with decisions about her own body but
multi-national corporations can make decisions affecting all mankind
without regulation.

6.) The best way to improve military morale is to praise the troops in
speeches, while slashing veterans' benefits and combat pay.

7.) If condoms are kept out of schools, adolescents won't have sex.

8.) A good way to fight terrorism is to belittle our long-time allies,
then demand their cooperation and money.

9.) Providing health care to all Iraqis is sound policy, but providing
health care to all Americans is socialism. HMOs and insurance companies
have the best interests of the public at heart.

10.) Global warming and tobacco's link to cancer are junk science, but
creationism should be taught in schools.

11.) A president lying about an extra-marital affair is an impeachable
offense, but a president lying to enlist support for a war in which
thousands die is solid defense policy.

12.) Government should limit itself to the powers named in the
Constitution, which include banning gay marriages and censoring the
Internet.

13.) The public has a right to know about Hillary's cattle trades, but
George Bush's driving record is none of our business.

14.) Being a drug addict is a moral failing and a crime, unless you're a
conservative radio host. Then it's an illness and you need our prayers
for your recovery.

15.) What Bill Clinton did in the 1960's is of vital national interest,
but what Bush did in the '80's is irrelevant.

From [livejournal.com profile] hellziggy, who got it from [livejournal.com profile] theseamster, who got it from [livejournal.com profile] kessadebra:

"Senator, when you took your oath of office, you placed your hand on the Bible and swore to uphold the Constitution. You didn't place your hand on the Constitution and swear to uphold the Bible."

---Jamie Raskin, testifying Wednesday 1 March 2006 before the Maryland Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee in response to a question from Republican Senator Nancy Jacobs about whether marriage discrimination against gay people is required by "God's Law."
