Say the opposite, say the opposite

As Ze Frank jingled back in 2006, we should know by now that whatever platform a Republiscum harps on about or champions, that they in fact really mean the exact opposite. A few cases in point:

Republicans say they are for small government, but under every single Republican leader since Ike, the government has grown - and it has outgrown Democratic governments.

  • In the 2000 elections, George W. Bush ran on a platform of "compassionate Conservatism." Does anyone remembering ever seeing any of that?
  • George W. Bush declared "Mission Accomplished" - well, we know how that went.
  • George W. Bush said "we do not torture!" But waterboarding is torture. We waterboard. Therefore, we torture.
  • John McCain said he was going to run an honorable campaign just about the issues. Yet, we have seen almost nothing from McCain on the issues, but instead have seen only negative and dishonest personal attacks on Obama.
  • John McCain is using the campaign slogan "Country First" while every single action he's taken - most importantly with his choosing Sarah Palin as his VP - has shown that he is indeed putting "Campaign First" and no telling where he's putting the country.
  • John McCain said he was "suspending his capaign" to fly off to Wershington to save the economy, yet he still has attack ads running in local and national markets. More to the point, his surrogates are still making the rounds with the talking heads, attacking Obama. This morning, Nancy Puffinfucker, or whatever her name is, was on Fox attacking Obama, and then went to a live chat with the Wershington Times.

Just remember, whenever McCain or the Republiscums get all fired up about something and start chanting it from the tops of soap boxes, just try a little mental trick and find the exact opposite meaning of whatever it is they are championing, and run with that, because that is what they really mean.

This list of "say the opposites" with Republicans can go on for a bit. Feel free to add your own in the comments. Meanwhile, check out this blast from the past!
