Forgiveness: The Difference Between Left and Right?

The announcement that Rick Warren, the conservative evangelical pastor at the Saddleback Church in California, will deliver the invocation at Barack Obama’s inauguration has prompted howls of anguish and outrage from liberals and gays.

My first thought was, why are these folks surprised? For over a year during the campaign, Obama repeatedly said he would work for a less-divided, more inclusive country. What a freakin’ nerve! He’s doing what he said he would do!

The uproar also serves to illustrate a basic difference between folks on the right and those on the left.

If a Republican candidate turns out to be a dud (Dubya) or an embarrassment (Palin), most conservatives will grind their teeth, clench their jaws, and vote for them anyway.

But if a liberal even thinks that you might be straying from the left's ideological line, he’ll scream bloody murder and throw you out of the boat.

Sheesh! No wonder we Democrats have so damn much trouble winning elections!

It's the newest way for preschools to teach the alphabet while raising cash.

They get a bank of keyboards and teach the kids to paste a comment into the space and then to type the funny colored letters into the box......
