Democrats And Republicans No Longer Have A Common Understanding Of Decency

Democrats And Republicans No Longer Have A Common Understanding Of Decency: I was listening to Rush Limbaugh talk about the Wellstone funeral yesterday and he reeled off what I think is the quote of the month…

“What concerns me about the future of our country is that we used to have a common understanding of decency. Now we don’t. We used to have a common understanding of propriety, of what’s right and what’s wrong. We used to have a common understanding of what’s insensitive and what is ghoulish. Now we don’t. We used to have a common understanding of what is proper, and what’s improper. We used to have a proper respect in this country for fairness, honesty. Now we don’t.”

To me, that quotation sums up everything from the Wellstone “memorial service”, to the aftermath of the 2000 election, to the Dems getting Laufenberg put on the ballot in New Jersey, to Bonior & McDermott saying Bush couldn’t be trusted from Baghdad, to even the gleeful Alzheimer’s jokes some lefties were telling about Heston. Ideology and politics are without a doubt important, but they’re not everything. That’s something I think we all need to be reminded of from time to time.
