Cynthia Yockey raised the ugly specter a few days ago. And, frankly, I couldn't stop thinking about it.
Then the beast appeared, yet again, at The Confluence.
How is it that the Democratic Party has managed to dupe so many Social Liberals with it's Socially Conservative / Fiscally Liberal dog and pony show? And is this what we PUMAs recognized, intuitively, in 2008? What made us so uneasy. What we could not quite put a finger on??
Personally, I am a Social Liberal first. Fiscally, I can go either way... depending on the issue. (That is why I liked Bill Clinton so much.) But.... I am *not* about to be led, by the Democrat Party... or anyone else... into some Socially Conservative/ Fiscally Liberal world that will damn women and gays to the same kind of hellish second classness that already exists for them in The Catholic Church, and many (dare I say Black) Southern Christian Denominations.
In fact, I broke with the Catholic Church over it's Social Conservatism. Almost 30 years ago. (I never picked a bone with their Fiscal Liberalism.)
PS. Remember THIS? Well, I tried to find a photo of Barack with his friend Donnie McClurkin to head this posting. Alas, they do not exist in Google. Strange, isn't it?
