The Party of KNOW

Gary Graham is my new hero:

Are we the party of ‘NO’?

Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Dianne Feinstein, et al, have gone on record to call the Republican Party ‘The Party of No’.

Why? Because we say NO to socialism? NO to racism? NO to weak foreign policy footing, kowtowing to despotic world leaders? Because we say NO to socialized medicine? NO to fomenting class-warfare, NO to raising taxes on the affluent? NO to killing babies in the womb, NO to redefining traditional marriage? NO to calling returning veterans extremist nut-jobs to be placed on a watch-list? NO to thinking we can spend and tax our way back to prosperity by saddling our grandkids with a Mt. Everest sized debt?

Okay…maybe they’re right; maybe we are the party of NO. But I’d like to offer a slight amendment to that moniker (thanks, Dr. Kloor):

We are the Party of ‘Know‘.

We know the principles upon which this country was founded. The principles you Lefties are always dragging through the mud. Little things like individual liberty. And respecting the flag. And love of God and country. And respect for our fighting troops. And smaller, limited government. And a dedication to our international autonomy. And the belief in peace through strength. Trust, but verify. Rugged individualism and personal responsibility.

You see…I look upon these values in a very positive light. It’s only when I see them attacked on a daily basis from the likes of the New York Times, the ACLU, the Washington Post, CBS, NBC, CNN, NPR, The Huffington Post, the Daily KOS, the Daily Show, David Letterman, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic Congress and RINO Republicans and every other arrogant, leftist collectivist punk who wants to completely redesign our Constitution and fashion instead a Eurotrash version of a socialist utopia….well…yeah, when I see these sacred principles attacked, I stand up and yell, NO!


Ya see, Lefty… We know all about you. We know the truth. And we know you’re full of crap.

We are the party of KNOW.

Hollywood is so packed with abject fools that it's nice to see an actor who has an IQ in the triple digits.

Note that Mr. Graham's best known roles are as Det. Sykes from Alien Nation and Ambassador Soval from Star Trek: Enterprise. I think there's a trend here. Charlton Heston (Planet of the Apes, The Omega Man), Adam Baldwin (Firefly, Serenity, Chuck), Ron Silver (Timecop), Gary Sinise (Mission To Mars, Apollo 13), Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy The Vampire Slayer), Dean Cain (Superman), Tracy Scoggins, Bruce Boxleitner, Melissa Gilbert and Jerry Doyle (Babylon 5), Shannen Doherty (Charmed).

It seems that a lot of Hollywood's conservatives have worked in sci-fi/fantasy. It shouldn't come as any great surprise that people involved in the most intelligent entertainment genre would also have the most intelligent politics.
