why do we keep using the word conservative to describe the right-wing nuts who foul our politics? inhofe isn't a conservative, but a throwback. biblical purists substitute belief for thinking. let's relentlessly call such folks "antisocial," enemies of civilization, ignorant dummies, because they are. the failure to pound on the fact that the gop has impeded normal govt functions, has worked to disenfranchise many, and has no platform other than giving the already privileged everything they want (ala dick cheney), has left the field to the right wing liars and spinners. obama has been too collegial with these thugs, let them attack him without fighting back hard enough. and dems in congress and governorships haven't backed him as much as they should have. let's get a bit more politics ala carville, unless dems LIKE losing.
