CONSERVATIVES BEGIN CRYING ABOUT POOR MARTHA STEWART | 2003-06-21
Respectable conservatives are city people who keep quiet about the insanity of gun control. Since it is soldiers in Holy Uniforms who have imposed the New York gun law in Iraq, this gives them an added impetus to stay silent about it.
So what are the conservatives screaming about? They are sobbing loudly over the Federal prosecution of the hard left limousine liberal Martha Stewart. Martha fights for gun control. Martha likes nothing better than to see a law-abiding people imprisoned when they have guns to protect themselves in DC and New York.
Martha Stewart would be the first to report on an honest person who had a gun and send them to prison. She blames her problems on the "vast right wing conspiracy."
So why are conservatives going to pieces about Poor Martha? For the same reason they are ignoring the false start in gun control in Iraq. If men in Holy Uniforms enforce gun control in Iraq, that trumps any concern about whether it makes sense.
Such a debate would be good for America and for Iraq. But the good of America is never the first concern of respectable conservatives any more than it is for liberals.
For conservatives, anything done by a Holy Uniform is Good. By the same token, conservatives have another rule: Martha Stewart is Rich and therefore Martha Stewart is Good.
