DNC Seeking Slogan for Billboard in Rush Limbaugh’s Backyard

The DNC shamelessly reveals both its desperation and its brazenness in recruiting private citizens to join them in attacking… a private citizen. NICE.

My very own “gaffe,” and it’s a doozy.

I have learned that it is neither prudent nor wise to post online when I am barely functioning due to lack of sleep.

This morning I posted on a message board in a thread relating to the UK teen couple who find themselves to be the parents of a newborn baby.  A shocking story, and frankly one I haven’t read up on very astutely… which makes my gaffe all the more idiotic and thoughtless.

I made so bold as to refer to the teen mother as a “slut.”  Even as I look back on my state of mind, I’m in shock.  Considering my history as a youth leader for several years, I apparently completely ignored the factors of her age, maturity level, and the possibility that her home life isn’t the most stellar given that she turned to sexual relationships.

I’ve posted an apology on the board, but it’s really not enough.  It’s not the way I would ever consciously choose to represent myself or my views, and yet there it is.  I could probably delete the post, but I think that’d be a copout from my actions and taking responsibility for them.

In any case, to anyone who reads this or who read my initial post and the follow-up thereof, I again express my apologies and shame.  It was entirely uncalled for, and the teen mother in question deserves my empathy instead of my ridicule.

Obama against lobbyists in his administration…but not so much.

CNN Political Ticker – Obama Picks Defense Lobbyist as Deputy Defense Secretary

Not a good indicator of him sticking to his guns.

Nancy Pelosi on why abortion is good for the economy.

Nancy Pelosi’s Modest Proposal

Yes, I can see how eliminating underfunded pregnancies could save on costs… however, her choice of words and the vehemence of the legislation to make sure abortion is absolutely everywhere (including helping it happen in countries other then our own) seems to me to be tending in a dubious direction.

Nancy Pelosi Strikes Again…

“Yes, we wrote the bill. Yes, we won the election.”

The quintissential example of tact and bipartisanship.  I somehow don’t think Obama would have used this choice of words… but wait…

Obama thinks the economic issue is settled because he “won.”

Ah, Mr. President, if only it were THAT easy.
