Some things to ponder about conservatives

Conservatives favor market forces and open competition. Unless you're talking about Halliburton and its subsidiaries getting no-bid contracts in Iraq, Qatar and Louisiana (it's due to their vast experience...in working on other no-bid contracts).

Conservatives favor limited public spending. Unless you're talking about this administration. Exactly where did that surplus go, again?

Conservatives favor intelligent design. Yet something went hideously wrong with "intelligent" and "design" if Bill Clinton got elected not just once, but twice, and Michael Moore can make millions of dollars.

Conservatives favor original intent of the framers. This is evident in their support of Iraq's Constitution, which doesn't give women the right to vote, either.

Conservatives equate assent to patriotism, and dissent to sedition and treason. Unless you dissented when Bill Clinton was President. Then your dissent was patriotic.

Add one more - Conservatives favor father figures - unless the child is Elian Gonzales and his dad happens to be Cuban.
