For those who weren’t there

At CPAC this weekend I answered the question of why the left is ahead of the right online. My quote, which I believe you can find on any number of left wing sites, was along the lines of “because we have family lives because we don’t abort our kids and we believe in capitalism so we go to work.”

I stand by that quote. It’s a great line. I’ve used it on several occasions. It got a great bit of laughter from the room, which was its intention. Some people, however, have no sense of humor. Probably because it hits too close to home for the humorless.

    “Probably because it hits too close to home for the humorless.”

    What does the quote have to do with Bill Simon?

  2. Great line Erick. Reminds me of the pro-life leader who was asked how they were going to make America a pro-life nation. He answered “just give us a few generations and we’ll breed them out.”

  3. As for Icarus’ comment about the humorless Bill Simon – I get the joke but I wonder if it isn’t about time for a new page on PP explaining all our little inside jokes.

    Here’s the thing Erick.

    I get called a Democrat a lot because I tend to associate with Democrats more often than Republicans.

    The reason I hang with Democrats more often?

    Because even when I disagree with them they tend to not say things that make me want to vomit.
