I am now a Democrat

After Tuesday, isn't it time to redefine loyalty, commitment, and integrity?



It's clear the Republicans have missed the point on Iraq and deserved to lose big this election year. Tuesday's Democratic surge proves that we need to reconsider our committment to that country and heck, let's not stop there. What other rigid loyalties do we stubbornly hold on to despite the difficulties?

For instance, it's true that I authorized the justice-of-the-peace to marry my wife and me, but I didn't know that he was actually going to proceed with it. Due to this deceptive miscalculation, I find myself locked in an expensive and protracted struggle that requires me to come home at night, stick around
even during arguments, remember anniversaries, birthdays, and worst of all sacrifice my money on people other than myself.

Also, it was never made clear to me (and apparently many others) that "marriage" would mean an end to seeing other women. It's true this was mentioned, but not discussed in a bi-partisan fashion where alternative viewpoints could emerge.
"For better or for worse" is outmoded needs clarification in light of the lies told at the outset of this effort.

Further, while I "sponsored" the act that led to my daughter, I never at any point authorized the many encroachments upon my time and money that being "a father" demand. Now, I learn that I may be on the hook for her education, security, and general welfare until she turns 18! I did not sign up for that when I said, "I do." That's for sure.

It seems that the judge who performed our ceremony rushed headlong into the wedding, but had no plans for our marriage. As such, isn't it time I reconsider my oaths in light of these new developments? Fairness demands it, I believe.

Thank you John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi, Howard Dean, and Harry Reid for helping me to see the light. I owe it to myself to reconsider these things.

After all, give me convenience or give me death.

If we follow your argument, we should go back to Vietnam and finish off the rest of 'em.

Considering the hell hole Viet Nam is today, we probably should.

Or better yet, how about we commit to an effort once we start and let the soldiers and generals fight?

Apparently, Abizaid tried to do this yesterday, but the Democrats know better -- you know..being on the ground in that country and all...
