It really is them. I know I’ve said before that I don’t like a lot of the weirdo stuff that goes on at political blogs; a lot of it seems like childish name-calling and in-crowd cliche, but when I looked at this, I realized that maybe it was justified. Some. To make some small amends, I present you with An Open Letter To Conservatives.


You can’t flip out — and threaten impeachment – when Dems use a prlimentary procedure (deem and pass) that you used repeatedly (more than 35 times in just one session and more than 100 times in all!), that’s centuries old and which the courts have supported. Especially when your leaders admit it all.

You can’t vote and scream against the stimulus package and then take credit for the good it’s done in your own district (happily handing out enormous checks representing money that you voted against, is especially ugly) — 114 of you (at last count) did just that — and it’s even worse when you secretly beg for more.

Listen, I can’t excerpt it to do it justice. You really should go read it all – and then forward it to your cousin LeRoy who keeps sending you those things. (Not to imply that all LeRoys are that way, if you know what I mean.)

And here; to lighten up, Spring in Helsinki.
