L-dotters LOVE Ann Romney
The highly critical view of Mrs. Romney’s speech expressed by Laura Wood, Kidist Paulos Asrat, and me could not be more different from that expressed by the Republicans who post at Lucianne.com. To a man and woman, they love it, are thankful for it, are overjoyed by it. At the same time, let us remember that these are same people who worshipped at the feet of George W. Bush for eight years, who thought Sarah Palin was the greatest conservative in America, and who would have felt themselves transported to heaven if Romney had picked Condoleezza Rice as his VP. When I said earlier today, “Where is the American right-wing that will correct the delusional Republicans? It doesn’t exist. The Republicans are as right-wing as America will ever get,” I wasn’t just speaking of the party establishment. I was speaking of the party rank and file, including the L-dotters.
A family member inherited a fair sum of money some years ago. As she explained the details to me, she mentioned the amount in taxes taken before she and a sibling divided the remainder between them. As I recall, the tax was around fifty percent. I reacted in disgust. She said to me in reply, “But I’m happy. I’m just glad to be left with something.”LA replies:
Think of the glass-half-empty / glass-half-full opposition. Well, for the L-dotters and many other conservatives, if the glass is nine-tenths empty, they see it as one-tenth full!
