The '00s are the new '50s

Today, my friends at the Washington Times printed an editorial denouncing news organizations' use of the term "conservative" in describing the hard-line Islamic candidates for Iran's Parliament, and "liberal" to describe the reformist candidates seeking to loosen the Islamic restrictions imposed on the public.

After all, the editorial says, "The absolute power of the Iranian ayatollahs is an anathema to all conservatives, fearing as we do the power of big government to take the small liberties away."

Also today, President Bush called for an amendment to this country's Constitution. The proposed amendment would add language to place nationwide restrictions on whether homosexuals can have government-recognized marriages and/or civil unions. The proposal clearly springs out of the President's religious beliefs, and essentially would write a specific form of discrimination into our Constitution.

Ahh, irony; she is a beautiful thing.
