In my sociology(socialism?) class today, a bunch of kids were whining about the elections. One particularly vocal girl said,"Bush only won Florida because his brother is the governor." I held my tongue, waiting for the ever-present self-contradictory statement in any statement a liberal tries to string together. Sure enough, about 15 seconds later, while commenting on the huge patch of Republican states in the southeast, she said,"Well, they're in the south, and the south always votes Republican." I decided to test her comprehension of the drivel she had just spouted, and presented this glaringly obvious contradiction to her, adding"I'm pretty sure Bush doesn't have a brother in the government of every one of those states that voted for him." The group sat there in stunned silence for a few seconds, then one especially intellectual kid replied"Bush is stupid."
Ever talk to a wall? That was probably more productive than my discussion today.
