The Five Stages of (GOP) Death
By Nancy Greggs
There was no vote tampering, voter suppression, or vote machine manipulation in the 2000 and 2004 elections. Bush won fair and square.
No one could possibly have anticipated using commercial airlines as missiles. No one could possibly have anticipated that the levees would be breached. No one could possibly have anticipated that there would be a strong insurgency.
There was no cherry-picking of intelligence. We all honestly believed that Iraq had WMDs.
We never implied that there was a connection between Saddam Hussein and 9-11.
We never implied that we knew where the WMDs were.
If you disagree with the Administration’s policies you are not a patriot!!!
If you don’t get behind the president, you are aiding and abetting the enemy!!!
The anti-war crowd is jubilant every time a US soldier is killed in Iraq, because they want the terrorists to win!!!
Just give up a few of your freedoms, and we’ll protect you in exchange. Trust us.
Tax cuts for wealthy individuals and corporations will trickle down to the middle class, so it’s a win-win situation. Trust us.
Outsourcing American jobs will actually mean more high-paying jobs here at home. Trust us.
Let us put the country into debt – it will actually strengthen the economy. Trust us.
Spying on American citizens is unlawful, but don’t you want to give the president the tools he needs to keep America safe? Trust us.
Torture is a terrible thing; but isn’t it worth it, if it saves American lives? Trust us.
