So, a candidate walks in to a foreign language class and says 

Q: Europeans call people who speak two languages bilingual and those who speak one language trilingual. What do they call Americans who speak one language?

A: American.

From TPM (the language thing is near the beginning, hang out to the end to see McCain hop off his stump long enough to tread onto Obama's (Obama "is living proof of the greatness of America")

It's so easy to be a right-winger 

Beth was on a tear,

Well, it didn't take me long to think of another frustrating idea. Some on both the left and right want to give amnesty to illegal immigrants, citing that these people just want to make a living for themselves. Yet, they deny the right to unborn children to make a living EVER. So, just because these illegal people are HERE in this country, they should just automatically be granted citizenship, but a child in the womb of an American woman is HERE (and always has been) in this country but is not a citizen until born.

It wasn't hard for her to "think of another frustrating idea" as her only guiding principal was to get pissed off.

First, she thought of immigrants and their supporters - not the west-bound Ellis Island or Plymoth Rock type of immigrants who made us great, but those who ooze northward, unbalancing the westward perfection.

Then she thinks of baby-killers and instead of acting to stop the perceived genocide, she thinks about the liberals who both support legal abortion and allowing undocumented immigrants with jobs to stay at their jobs.

See, it's easy to be a right-winger. You can just sit there and imagine being really pissed off - you don't have to think of solutions to your complaints as you already know it's all the fault of liberals.
