‘I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet.’  ~ I Timothy 2:12  


The worm has turned.  Whereas Obama was once referred to tongue-in-cheek (or perhaps not so much) as the Messiah, he has been displaced as the Anointed One by Sarah Palin.  The endless gushing by ‘conservatives’ over John McCainiac’s choice for running mate is so insufferably saccharine as to require an insulin injection prior to listening to talk radio.  It is worth noting that Rush Limbaugh has taken time out from his warmongering and imperialistic cheerleading to fawn over Gov. Palin like a hormone-driven teenager.  It’s quite embarrassing, actually.

This circus sideshow of an election has left me, more than once, asking myself, What exactly is it that so-called ‘conservatives’ are trying to conserve?  This modern incarnation certainly bears little–if any–resemblance to the conservative ideology of our forebears.  In fact, the conservative movement is anything but.  With the exception of the Pro-Life issue–which, I am convinced, would be jettisoned with all dispatch if it would mean certain victory over the Democrats–I can tell very little difference between to-day’s ‘conservatives’ and yesterday’s liberals.

It’s enough to make a grown man cry.










  • ‘Sarah palin may be as sincere as can be, but if after a combined Reagan/ Bush I/ Bush II run of 20 years you still think the Republicans are going to shrink government, stop babies from being killed or reverse the slow erosion of 2nd amendment rights then you haven’t been paying attention.’








‘Conservatives come to Washington knowing that it’s a sewer. Trouble is, most of them wind up treating it like a hot tub.’  ~ Stan Evans
