Liberals - 1, Republi-Trolls - 0

I think I make it as glaringly obvious as I can on this blog that I am an unabashed liberal. Always have been, always will be; and the older I get, the more liberal I become. So, it was with great delight that I read Erin's post from yesterday, where she slam dunks on a Republi-Troll who didn't have the balls to give her his contact info (maybe because he knows his views are skewed?).

Erin's blog is "Jesus Was Not A Republican", and the reason she chose this title is to point out the hypocrisy of the Right Wing by choosing Jesus as a mascot, and thinking He only works for them. Of course, George the Troll was incensed to think that Jesus could be referred to as *shudder* A Liberal. Oh! The Horror! So, he posted a bunch of bullshit, and Erin countered him point for point, never missing a beat. And she did it all with intelligence and coherence, something I am not capable of in a debate. When I'm angry, I become extremely flustered, and can't form a rational thought (hence, the "incoherent ramblings" I refer to in my header), and end up devolving into using "So there" and "Neener-Neener" immature-style arguing techniques. This is to the great amusement of my husband, a man who couldn't find a debate he didn't love. Seriously, he'll argue about anything if thinks it would make a good debate, especially when it comes to religion. Yes, it can be annoying, however, after 11 years, I've learned to ignore his bait most of the time.

Anyway, I would really love it if you took the time to stop by her blog and have a look around. She's a really great, intelligent, open, honest person, and hers is a voice that definitely needs to be heard, especially before Tuesday's important mid-term elections. Thanks!
