I apparently am more fair than intelligent. I watched some of the Republican National Convention this week. I wanted to hear what they had to say. I went away from the experience feeling dirty, and not just the normal politics-makes-you-feel-dirty feeling. I felt like Americans are being tricked by the Republican party. Here's a hint:
THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT YOU.
They say they do, but they don't. Christian values? Which ones? Small government? Ha. I know it's been said, but this is really stuck in my craw. Giuliani talking about Barack Obama's experience as a community organizer was classic. It wasn't that he was saying it wasn't on par with something specific. He was laughing--literally laughing--at the fact that he did it. What a pussy. Hahaha. What a loser. And the crowd went wild.
So, all you out there trying to make your community better, the Republican party says, people who help others are chumps. Remember how they wanted government out and local and faith-based organizations in? What happened to that?
So much for God and country and family values.
And as Levar Burton on Reading Rainbow used to say, you don't have to take my word for it.
