An Old Lady Democrat

I have been a Dem my whole life - six months shy of 80 years. Why? Because I've never met a Conservative I could stand for more than a few minutes.

However, the new crop of Conservatives are probably the most nutso that I have encountered in my entire life - in that they are very dangerous and purposefully so.

George W. Bush was dangerous because he was stupid. Not malicious. Not angry. Just a do-do bird who really just wanted to own a baseball team and somehow wound up being president for 8 years.

But this new crop; the Santorum, Bachmann, Palin, Beck/ Limbaugh crazies - they are not JUST stupid. They have darkness in their souls. They have evil eyes. And they call themselves Christians? I think not! The REAL message of Christianity is to HELP all those in need, not spend time reading some old obscure book and shaming young ones for who they love or the hard decisions they had to make. Shame on them all I say!

I sincerely hope President Obama wins again, as he's doing well enough for me. Mitt Romney doesn't even know which side of the fence he's on half the time. He's just proof that somebody with lots of money isn't necessarily the brightest bulb in the box, as Fox News (sic) might have you believe.

Thank you for reading the ramblings of an old lady!!

Your perspective on how crazy conservatives have become today is especially valuable given how long you have had to compare them with. Thanks for sharing.<br />
