It’s sad but true that when you are a conservative, your enemies are not only the Democrats but RINOs from within your own party. There is no doubt whatsoever that the “mainstream” media and other Leftists have declared all-out, no-holds-barred war on Michele Bachmann.

As you likely know, in the world of the liberal mind, many things are completely backward and upside-down. To the liberal mind, truth is a lie, and lies are the truth; good is evil, and evil is good; those who speak the truth are speaking hate, and those who speak hatred are practicing “tolerance.” I often wonder if they see their blatant disconnect from reality, and I’m certain that at some level—however deeply it may be buried in their consciences—they do. So it is with the members of the radical homosexual movement.
