taking the passive out of passive-aggressive

Sunday, March 13, 2005

Ugh. Debbie and dogfaceboy are so right on this, I'm so wrong. In my 'hood we have a lot of republican assholes with impeccable taste. They all shop at the fancy grocery store, women in expensive shoes elbowing each other out of the deli line in their quest for proscuitto, climbing into their suburbans with the lacrosse stickers and W: The President bumper stickers.

But this other subset--the tacky one--also exists. And I can't help but wonder what these two groups have in common--the upscale conservative assholes and the downmarket variety? What possible common cause do these two groups think they have?

At least the rich Republicans are being honest. Yes, W. actually does have their best interests at heart. But the other type of conservative--Joe Sixpack--needs to wake up and read the writing on the wall. I suppose that's why the populist variety of conservative enrages me even more than the honest-to-god ruling-elite variety.

Right on, sistuh! You have it. I belong to a forum on which one or two of the tacky ones reside. They shop (heck, they WORK) at Wal-Mart, and they believe in God, Guts, and Guns.

My husband said he's sick and tired of seeing all the God Bless America bumper stickers, and he wants one that says, "God Forgive America."

I was thinking of doing this: "Why, Did America Sneeze?"

But I digress. :)

yeah, i think this "downmarket variety" right-winger is all about the g-o-d. they may live in trailer parks and shop at wal-mart, but they feel morally superior to us liberals with our sinful lust for abortion, gay marriage and stem-cell research! the issues that *should* matter to them, and would make them hate W as much as we do, just don't stand a chance in their narrow-minded, god-fearing world.
