10 Things I Hate About Commandments | Main | To Hell With Immigration
May 15, 2006

Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire!

I have frequently surfed over to Polipundit for political discussions, but right now I'm beginning to wonder what's in the water over there. There should always be room for civil discourse within the Right, even on the superheated issue that immigration has become of late, where people are quite plain in their harsh pronouncements.

Even so, I have to gaze in astonishment at two competing posts on display over there. Has it really come to this? Either Bush (or as some wags say, El Presidente Jorge Arbusto) is LYING with every word of his speech (thank you, Polipundit), or, if you aren't wildly applauding the speech and unreservedly supporting Bush's plan, and claim to be a Republican and a conservative, then "you are not a Republican. You are not a conservative. You are a LIAR. A LIAR." (Thank you, Mr. McClure) Oh, and don't disagree with Mr. McClure's definition of 'amnesty', or you might have to decide whether you are "a moron, or a liar."

I have sympathies for both sides of this debate. I'm not happy with how President Bush is handling a number of issues, this being a big one, but I'm also more interested in seeing that something positive and constructive takes place.

Frankly, sirs, a pox on both your houses. Get a grip and try again. Please.

Update: As noted in the comments, it appears that Polipundit is imploding and Lorie Byrd is leaving. I wish Polipundit well, but this is not why I have been reading his site, and so I will look elsewhere for daily reading.
