The National "Pryority"
Slow-witted, pathologically self-centered, lazy, envious, racist, unhappy and resentful. Most Democrats fall into one or more of those categories. Their self-absorption is boundless.
Take for instance Tom Pryor. In a letter to the editor of Salon (via James Taranto), Pryor weighs in on U.S. aid for Iraq:
I'm as big a liberal as the next guy, but I've been out of work for a year now and my unemployment insurance is long gone, and frankly, I couldn't give a flying f--- about the plight of the Iraqi people. I've got my own problems. What the hell have they ever done for me? Why should I subsidize their healthcare when I can't even afford my own?
I was against this war and this president from the beginning, and since nobody seemed to want to listen to me, I really do not feel any personal responsibility for the plight of the Iraqi people. I say let the Republicans choke on their mistakes in Iraq--or better yet, let Fox News, Halliburton and the Trireme Group pay for the costs of reconstruction. If these clowns love privatization so much, let's see how they handle it. Then, after they f--- up, let's let the U.N. handle the rest of it, so we can bring the troops home and start worrying about dumping Bush and fixing the economy, healthcare and the national debt.
If Packer and Berman (and their ilk) still want me to support $87 billion for Iraqi reconstruction, how about they pony up $87 thousand for my own personal financial reconstruction?
Behold the Pryor Doctrine. The Pryor Doctrine holds that urgent matters pertaining to national survival and security cannot be addressed until Tom Pryor is provided a job and his living expenses are covered by taxpayers.
Do you care that thousands of innocents were murdered on September 11, 2001? Tom Pryor doesn't.
Are you worried that terrorist nations may attack America again? Tom Pryor isn't.
Do you care if Iraq resumes sponsoring terrorist attacks on the United States? Tom Pryor doesn't
Because -- his fellow Americans be damned -- Pryor's only priority is himself. In other words, he's a typical Democrat.
Interesting, though, that someone complaining of being unemployed and broke for so long has a computer, internet access and time to read online magazines and write whiny letters to the editor.
