The Left has been in a frenzy since the election over the "moral values" issue.
They don't get it.
They think that it is, above all else, a religous issue.
It's really not so much a religous issue as a common sense issue.
Granted, that common sense may come from a religous basis, but it is older than any Bible.
Common sense told people that anyone who had gained 3 Purple Hearts in Vietnam in 4 months (of which one month would have been spent in training), would be the greatest war hero in American history. That certainly wasn't John Kerry.
In other words, he was lying to gain power. Not much of a "moral value" there.
Common sense told us that a man who would come back from a war and turn on his "brothers in arms" for purely political reasons was not the guy that we wanted in office. Especially in war time.
Common sense told us that George Bush, a guy with degrees from Harvard and Yale, was no dummy as the Left likes to portay him.
Common sense told us that Sadaam Hussein, who had done everything that he could, including trying to assasinate a former President, to bring America down was in full support of any terrorist who was willing to harm America. He had, in fact, written checks to the families of suicide bombers in Israel. Doubtless from money that he had skimmed from the U.N.'s oil-for-food program.
What it comes down to is that the Democrats are increasingly seen as a party that will say whatever is necessary to regain power, even if what they say defies what you know.
And, therein, lie your moral values. It's not religous. It's the fact that Democrats will say or do anything to get thenselves back in power, and the American people are starting to realize that. And, no matter how much we are disparaged as "red-state" morons, we realize that these are not the kind of people that we want in power.
So let's let them install Howard Dean as DNC chairman. Let them ensconce Michael Moore as their disheveled icon.
Give 'em enough rope....
