LIKE LAMBS LED TO SLAUGHTER | 2005-02-26

Most media pundits credit Bush's narrow victory over Kerry to the "traditional values" crowd who were opposed to the "gay marriage" agenda. They are probably correct.

But even though Bush has given only lip service to their concerns, these folks seem to worship the ground he walks on. He can do no wrong in their eyes.

Of course, it is this kind of blind, stupid obedience that has brought us to where we are today. It is what causes sheep to follow the "Judas goat" down to the slaughtering pens.

Of course, sheep have a bit more of an excuse than do white American human beings. As they say about sheep, "If you aren't in the lead, the view never changes."

Funny thing is, the words coming from Respectable Conservatives never change either.

Probably because they can't tell much difference between the average white American and a dumb sheep.

And to be honest with you, neither can I.
