Bookworm on the ethos of the two major parties

I read this amusing post at “Bookworm Room” today on the difference between conservatives and liberals. Forwarded by a reader, it really does capture the essence of the mindsets. A taste:

If a conservative doesn’t like guns, he doesn`t buy one.
If a liberal doesn’t like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.

If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn`t eat meat.
If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.

It’s a short post and I suggest your read the whole thing. Also, for those who enjoy poetry, here is a one written by Bookworm on the subject of medieval Flemish painters. It is really very good, and is more than my short characterization of it seems; again, take a moment and read it, it’ll do you good!

    If a conservative is a non-believer, he doesn’t go to church.
    A liberal non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced.

    How does one reconcile this couplet with the whiny bitch known as Allahpundit?

    Good question Mr. Grumpy. I think it may have something to do with his pre-9/11 liberal mindset. Or, perhaps he feels he’s a srict libertarian constitutionalist…

    For a guy who wants any mention of religion silenced, Allah sure posts about it a lot.

    Pablo,
    I think that as much about him being a provacateur as it is about the hits, and comments, he knows that such pronouncements drive.

    Sometimes I wonder if he’s a harcore atheist or a reacionary one like my younger brother!

    Be Cool!

    Oh, it’s shameless traffic whoring. That’s no secret. I don’t think he’s ideological in his atheism. he just knows that any mention of faith or atheism is good for thousands of hits and a good 800 comments.

    Cute poetry, as in who’d a thunk a Christian Taliban could rhyme.

    There is a great deal to say on the role music plays as both a physical and a spiritual entity. ,
