    Re: McConnell aides secretly taped ripping Ashley Judd

    Conservative political philosophy at its finest.

    Judd's voice: I call it the American anesthesia. You know, I come back to this country. I freak out in airports. The colors, the sounds, all those different ways of packaging the same snack but trying to, you know, make it look like it's distinct and different and convince consumers that they have to have it. I mean all of that. The last time I came home from a trip, I absolutely flipped out when I saw pink fuzzy socks on a rack. I mean, I can never anticipate what is going to push me over the edge. [Laughter.]

    But in a few weeks, you know, I'm driving along smooth roads and I think nothing of it. I'm, you know, choosing between four different brands of cereal from plastic dispensers so that I don't have to have, you know, ugly, mismatched boxes on my shelf, and I don't think anything of it. You know?

    Presenter: So pink fuzzy socks are of concern. [Laughter.]

    You act like this is the first campaign to do this. It was just a discussion of an opponent and possible options, they didn't even act on it. What's wrong with what they said?

    I would have thought the [laughter] portion would have indicated that the presenter was being facetious. I mean, I get the inclination to be as dishonest as possible in hopes of convincing somebody that the opposition is evil, but when it's this blatant it's just pathetic, dude.

    Just because it isnt the first, or the only time this has happened doesn't make it right. Are you going to pretend that any immoral activity is ok as long as enough people are doing it?

    That's the thing: he wasn't. Conservatives actually believe rot like this.

    I don't see anything immoral here. What did they do that you find so abhorrent?

    Re: McConnell aides secretly taped ripping Ashley Judd

    Presenter: She's an open advocate as you can see. Anyhow I know this is sort of a sensitive subject but you know at least worth putting on your radar screen is that she is critical…[inaudible] sort of traditional Christianity. She sort of views it as sort of a vestige of patriarchy. She says Christianity gives a God like a man, presented and discussed exclusively with male imagery which legitimizes and seals male power, the intention to dominate even if that intention is nowhere visible.

    And this is sort of an interview that sort of manifests this sort of I would say oddly syncretic approach to Christianity.
    "A syncretic approach to Christianity" -- wow, that's a real issue for the American people. I'm glad McConnell is honing in on that and saving the nation from syncretism.

    And Republicans wonder why nobody takes them seriously anymore except people who talk in tongues.

    It's isn't immoral to discuss the quotes and statements made by your opponent in order to determine how to fight against them during an election...it's ****ing logic.

    No, I just actually listen to what conservatives say all the time. It's mostly freakish, like this stuff.
