The clarion call of liberalism should be, "Do as we say, not as we do." There are a myriad of examples to bear this out. The question that comes to mind is why there isn't a reward for bringing in their pelts.

For instance, in spite of their insistent demand that taxes be raised -- especially on the rich -- people like George Soros, the Kerrys, the Kennedys and Senators Jay Rockefeller and Dianne Feinstein, all receive the bulk of their wealth through low-taxed family trusts and offshore accounts.

As I have pointed out in the past, there's no law on the books preventing them or any of their left-wing cronies from donating all they like to Uncle Sam's coffers. I'm sure he'd appreciate it, and I know the rest of us would enjoy a respite from their self-righteous rants.

Another example of blatant hypocrisy on the left is Arianna Huffington's refusal to pay the contributors to the Huffington Post. While it's true that I wouldn't pay a dime for the knee-jerk propaganda that fills her blog on a daily basis, it's also true that I didn't recently sell the site to AOL for $315 million!

Then there's Michael Moore, whose brain is even sloppier and a bigger mess than his person. He was all over the tube, delivering pep talks to the union thugs in Madison, Wisconsin, giving Governor Scott Walker hell for having the audacity to keep his campaign promises, and voicing his undying devotion to the cause of organized labor everywhere. Or nearly everywhere. It seems he's chosen to use non-union crews on some of his movies for no other reason than to save himself a few bucks. And this bozo claims to hate capitalism?! Right, he and George Soros hate it like crazy, all the way to the bank.

One of the most repulsive characteristics of those who inhabit the left is their lack of a moral compass. It explains why uberlib Steven Spielberg saw no difference between the Arabs who massacred the Israeli Olympians at Munich and those who pursued and executed the assassins.

It also explains why they look at the Middle East conflict, and manage to equate the unrelenting missile attacks on Israel, not to mention the cold-blooded murders of Jewish women and children, by its enemies with Israel's eventual retaliation. Which, in turn, is inevitably described as a brutal over-reaction by the leftist members of the world press.

Those on the left equate the acts of individual madmen like Timothy McVeigh and Jared Loughner with Islamic terrorism, and by trying to connect such ogres to Christianity or the Tea Party, they pretend that America and the world have as much to fear from adherents of Jesus Christ and Michele Bachman as they do from jihadists.

We saw a smaller, but equally telling, example of this in the recent video of the fat Australian schoolboy being attacked by the smaller bully. After absorbing three or four punches to his face and body, the larger boy picked up the nasty little creep and body-slammed him to the ground. All over the world, conservatives cheered as they watched the innocent victim turn on his tormentor.

Among those not cheering were the school administrators, who, in their infinite ignorance, decided to suspend both boys. I have no doubt that Australian educators, like our own, tend to be liberals. And, being liberals, I suspect they wouldn't have been able to choose sides between the Luftwaffe and the RAF.

These are the elitists who see fit to lecture conservatives. In simple terms, I've found that when you're right, you're right, and when you're left, you're wrong.

It was no mistake that when it came to symbols, the elephant, the animal that best exemplifies intelligence and strength without viciousness, would represent Republicans, while Democrats, for all the obvious reasons, would be represented by the braying jackass.
