You know you are a Republican when:

...Saddam was a good guy when Reagan armed him, a bad guy when Bush's daddy made war on him, a good guy when Cheney did business with him and a bad guy when Bush needed a "we can't find Bin Laden" diversion. with Cuba is wrong because the country is Communist, but trade with China and Vietnam is vital to a spirit of international harmony.

...A president lying about an extramarital affair is an impeachable offense. A president lying to enlist support for a war in which thousands die is solid defense policy.

...Jesus loves you, and shares your hatred of homosexuals and Hillary Clinton.

...the best way to improve military morale is to praise the troops in speeches while slashing veterans' benefits and combat pay.

...providing health care to all Iraqis is sound policy. Providing health care to all Americans is socialism. warming is junk science, but creationism should be taught in schools.

...being a drug addict is a moral failing and a crime, unless you're a conservative radio host. Then it's an illness and you need our prayers for your recovery.

Saucy Posse Returns

Went to Burlington Vt yesterday, on the Port Kent Ferry, to watch my daughter and her roommates race in the Vt City Marathon (Relay portion). Last year in the Open Womens Division they placed 8 out of 91 relay teams with a total guntime time of 3:32:11 (7:45 pace). This year they placed 5/94 with a guntime time of 3:17:37 (7:33 pace). They have to knock off another 10 min to get into the top 3. Maybe next year. I'll have some pictures of the ferry crossing in a day or so.
