NEW YEAR'S: CRITICAL FOR THEM, MEANINGLESS TO ME | 2005-01-01

When the ball reached the bottom in New York City on January 1, 2005, liberal and respectable conservative dialogue changed. Nothing they have done works, so they justify all their horrors, their weakness, and above all, their inability to think, with the words

"This is 2005."

When the question of interracial marriage came up, John McCain said, "This is 2000, not 1900."

Profound, eh?

And just yesterday every liberal and respectable conservative would have sung in unison, "This is 2004!"

What a difference a day makes.
