    Have you been alerted? There are new rules...

    1) Being a drug addict is a moral failing and a crime, unless you are millionaire conservative radio jock, which makes it an illness and needs our prayers for your recovery.

    2) You have to believe that those privileged from birth achieve success all on their own.

    3) You have to believe that the
    US should get out of the UN, and that our highest national priority is enforcing UN resolutions against Iraq
    .

    4) You have to believe that government should stay out of people's lives but it needs to punish anyone caught having private sex with the wrong gender.

    5) You have to believe that pollution is ok, so long as it makes a profit.

    6) You have to believe in prayer in schools, as long as you don't pray to Allah or Buddha.

    7) "Standing Tall for
    America" means firing your workers and moving their jobs to India
    .

    8) You have to believe that trade with
    Cuba is wrong because it is communist, but trading with China and Vietnam
    is just dandy.


    9) You have to believe that you love Jesus and Jesus loves you, but that itÂ’s OK to dismiss or even hate AIDS victims, homosexuals, and Hillary Clinton.

    10) You hate the ALCU for representing convicted felons, but they owed it to the country to bail out Oliver North.

    11) You have to believe that the best way to encourage military morale is to praise the troops overseas while cutting their VA benefits.

    12) You believe that group sex and drug use are degenerate sins that can only be purged by running for governor of
    California
    as a Republican.

    13) You have to believe it is wise to keep condoms out of schools, because we all know if teenagers don't have condoms they won't have sex.

    14) You have to believe that the best way to fight terrorism is to alienate our allies and then demand their cooperation and money.

    15) You have to believe that government medicine is wrong and that HMO's and insurance companies only have your best interests at heart.

    16) You have to believe that providing health care to all Iraqis is sound government policy but providing health care to all Americans is socialism personified.

    17) You believe that tobacco's link to cancer and global warming are "junk science," but Creationism should be taught in schools.

    18) You have to believe that waging war with no exit strategy was wrong in
    Vietnam but right in Iraq
    .

    19) You have to believe that Saddam was a good guy when Reagan armed him, a bad guy when Bush's daddy made war on him, a good guy when Cheney was doing business with him, and a bad guy when Bush needed a we-can't-find-Bin-Laden diversion.

    20) You believe that government should restrict itself to just the powers named in the Constitution, which includes banning gay marriages and censoring the internet.

    21) You have to believe that the public has a right to know about the adulterous affairs of Democrats, while those of Republicans are a private matter.

    22) You have to believe that the public has a right to know about Hillary's cattle trades but that Bush was right to censor those 28 pages from the Congressional 9/11 report because you just can't handle the truth.

    23) You support state rights, which means Ashcroft telling states what locally passed voter initiatives he will allow them to have.

    24) You have to believe that what Clinton did in the 1960's is of vital national interest but what Bush did decades later is stale news and irrelevant.

    Great post Steve. The nation would be in a much better place if we'd start a "War on hypocrisy" instead of a "War on terror" or a "War on drugs"

    A war on Hypocrisy? Sounds like what Tupac said, for all the good that did him.
