    The fringe left often says anyone who is for the war in Iraq is a hypocrite unless they are willing to serve.

    If that is true, then shouldn't those who support gay rights, which is another hot-button issue, who write sports for a living, lobby to expand coverage of the Gay Olympics, including televised coverage on an ESPN that covers spelling bees and dog shows but not gay sports? And if they aren't sports journalists, how many gay rights parades have they marched in? If they haven't, or aren't, are they equal in hypocrisy to the "chickenhawks" or is it another liberal double-standard?


    Maybe an answer or two before a liberal whines and gets the thread locked.

    There's a chapter called "Justifying your logic when it truly doesn't make sense." Which is why the Gay Games aren't on anyone's Page 1. Don't ask, don't tell, right JR? When it comes to push or shove.....

    Remember when Yawn decided to abandon his divisive political schtick and was an actual, productive member of the board?

    Man, that was a great ... couple of hours.

    Only Yawn could relate the Gay Olympics to the war in Iraq.

    Don't you accuse environmentalists of hypocrisy if they don't ride horses to work instead of driving cars?

    No, shitnose. I'm relating a passion for something, a belief in something, to action on behalf of something.

    And so far, liberals have only proven that they're talkers.

    And insulters. Because they can't argue it. They have no action to show for their yack.

    It's a false premise.

    No matter how it's argued, it can only lead to a false conclusion.
