Villagers With Pitchforks

The flaming torches were delayed in transit, sorry.

One would think, that this weblog - a forum devoted to cynicism - would have a Daily Dubya feature. This weblog would, but time is short, and other folks pounce on Bush (metaphorically of course) much better than I ever will. See Making Light/Electrolite off to the left for examples and pointers.

And I am a gentleman. Gentlemen don't fight unarmed opponents, and that's what a battle of wits with Dubya would become. Rather quickly.

But I can't resist this photo guide to Rumsfeld fighting techniques.

Excellent post, and AWESOME Rummy fighting techniques! I am new to American politics and am still learning. For example, hubby has TRIED & TRIED to explain the difference between a Republican & a Conservative, but I just don't get it! First, because we have the Conservative Party & the Liberal Party in Canada, but most importantly because it looks like an American Conservative is the exact opposite of what a Canadian Conservative is! I'm so confused! But all confusion aside, your average kindergartner out there understands the absolute poison to America AND the world that Bush & his buddies are. Hopefully, this year's election we'll see a stinging defeat.

"Conservative" is just a label. Its meaning changes over time. Look up the views of leading conservative (in 1964) Barry Goldwater, and compare them to the so-called "Conservatives" now.

Have you gotten into the distinction between a social conservative and a fiscal conservative yet?
