One-liners

The story: Larry Flynt claims he has 30 solid leads on names from the D.C. Madam's list, including at least one more senator.
The comment: You know the world is a weird place when Larry Flynt is the conscience of a nation.

The story: In Washington, D.C., vandals trash a man's Hummer, leaving an illiterate protest note: "FOR THE ENVIRON."
The comment: Grow up and learn to spell. Since when is property damage a liberal value?

The story: Rep. Don Young of Alaska -- he of the "bridge to nowhere" -- loudly defends an earmark as "my money" on the House floor. He suggests that one reason Republicans lost control of the House in November is because conservative members had challenged too much such spending.
The comment: It isn't your money, Don; it's the taxpayers' money. Time to retire.

Let me ask this question.
Why is "for the environment" a liberal value?. I know it is. Why should conservation not be part of conservatism?
Clubbing vandals values or lack thereof to a liberal's values just demeans the whole debate.

There are many conservatives who are concerned about the environment, even if it's liberals who make up the larger share of the environmental movement. This attack, however, happened in a fairly liberal, granola neighborhood. Hence the assumption that the attackers were liberal as well as stupid.
