As I was driving to Indiana this weekend, I tuned into AM 700 out of Cincinnati to listen to my Reds beat Pittsburgh (wonder of wonders). While I was entertained by the game, I nearly swerved off I-70 while listening to a radio spot for the upcoming election in Ohio’s 2nd district for the US House. The hypocrisy of this ad was too much for me not bring up in a short rant.
It seems one of the Republicans running for the position wanted us to know he was a good family man, and would say no to the evil democrats who are ruining America from Washington. He went on to mention that the Democrats in Washington continue to tell us how to live our lives (yes they try to), they raise our taxes (or certainly would if they held a majority), they spend our money (amen brother), and try to make us live with their “definition” of marriage (WHAT?).
Now I will be the first to admit that I don’t read the paper every single day. And there are times that I will read about a story that is clearly a week or so in the making and wonder why it is the first time I’ve heard about it. But I have never heard of a Democrat trying to enact a law that defines marriage. I have however read a lot about a law defining marriage being written by REPUBLICANS. Apparently this candidate doesn’t so much have a problem with the fact that the Democrats are trying to tell us how to live our lives, but that they are trying to tell us how to live our lives in a way different from the way HE wants to tell us how to live our lives. Follow me?
It isn’t limited to the gay marriage “crisis” either. All I hear lately is that liberal activist judges are going too far in their rulings and must be stopped. Well, as it turns out, Republicans like activist judges as well, they just prefer them being activist in opposing directions. Why isn’t the mainstream media calling them on this?
