Seems to me this is the choice facing America's voters this November. Dumb and dumber.
Exhibit 'A' for the Dumb (Republican) Party--George Dubya Bush, who had a swell time with the lovely Muslims at a recent Ramadhan dinner (AKA 'iftar') at the White House earlier this week:
Well, there's Dubya's approach to Islam--argh! If you're done retching from John S's post from yesterday, I think we can all agree this approach is a terrible, terrible mistake. Islam is not going to become a friendly ideology, no matter how much we suck up to it! And remember, the Beltway Mahdi has been doing this sucking up for his entire tenure in office.
Bush has hosted an iftar dinner annually for the last six years in the State Dining Room. This year, he opened with the traditional Ramadan greeting of "Ramadan Karim" and praised Islam for bringing "hope and comfort to more than a billion people around the world."
The courses were listed on menus decorated with the crescent moon and star that symbolizes Islam.
The other choice on the ballot is the Dumber (Democratic) Party. Here's exhibit 'A' for these lovely people, who are on the verge of electing the first CAIR Muslim to the Congress (info courtesy of the Gates of Vienna):
Now comes Keith Ellison, former member of the Nation of Islam, running for Minnesota’s Fifth District. This candidate is a piece of work.
Don't forget, Minnesota's Fifth Congressional District voted 71% for Kerry. They're likely to find Ellison much to their liking. So then it will be up to the Democrats in Washington to keep him in line, and to try to convince the rest of us that they are not really the party of treason and that their candidates really will make America a safer place.
It's profoundly depressing to see that very very few people in the realm of power actually 'get it' about Islam. A few of them are conservatives and an even smaller number of them are liberals. Sure, there many be a fair number of us counter jihad bloggers in this part of the blogosphere. But how many of us in the counter-jihad are actually on the ballot?
So, are you having some difficulty trying to figure out who to vote for this November? Are you voting for Dumb or Dumber?
