Ahhhhh the truth is so refreshing…

A few fun quotables from some fun quotable people:

From Balloon Juice’s No Shit Department:

Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is poised to announce his campaign for the 2008 Republican presidential nomination in two phases early next month, a top adviser told The Associated Press on Friday.

To which John Cole so appropriately responds:

This is but a technicality. Mitt Romney declared he was running for President months ago when he began to sound like another bigoted, knuckle-dragging, fire-breathing, religious right troglodyte. Nothing to see here, really.

And from Pam’s House Blend:

Squirm, GOPpers, squirm! That's the problem with Conservatives Regressives: They set up a beautiful, perfect artificial imaginary reality, but then facts and reality keep intruding.

This is why we can't talk about Mary's baby, but also why we can't see photos of coffins landing at Dover, or focus on a child without health care, or a homeless man with no job opportunities, or a two-income family losing their home to foreclosure. Nasty reality forces Regressives to face the consequences of their policies.

Gays are easier to hate, wars are easier to fight, and trickle-up economics is easier to support when you can't see a human face on it.

"If people let government decide which foods they eat and medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny." -- Thomas Jefferson
