What is the epitome of a lesser evil?

PatriotPost.US "Americans are fed up with voting for the lesser of two evils. What is the epitome of a lesser evil? A 'Me First' politician masquerading him or herself as a loyal member of a political party. As a conservative, I'll leave Democrats to deal with their own phonies. On the Republican side, despite all the hysteria emanating from those who think they know better, the electorate was three-for-three: a trio of GOP Me Firsters -- Lisa Murkowski, Mike Castle and Charlie Crist -- have all been given the heave-ho. As evidenced by their actions, it couldn't have happened to a 'nicer' group of duplicitous hacks." --columnist Arnold Ahlert

"'Politically correct' views all derive from anti-Western, secular ideologies such as anti-capitalism, anti-imperialism, utilitarianism, feminism, multiculturalism and environmentalism. These all share the aim of overturning the established order in the West. So any groups who have power within that order can never be offended or hurt because they are themselves offensive and hurtful, while 'powerless' groups can never be other than victims. This obsession with power is, of course, a Marxist position; indeed, 'political correctness' is a form of cultural Marxism." --columnist Melanie Phillips

"Why ... is President Barack Obama pursuing an international nuclear disarmament agreement? It cannot be because he thinks it will work. Even if he were foolish enough to believe that, virtually anybody in the Pentagon can tell him why it won't. His political advisors, however, can tell him how great that can be for him personally -- if he doesn't already know that. It would be 'historic' and an 'achievement,' just like ObamaCare. His political base -- the young, the left and the thoughtless -- would be thrilled and energized. That can translate into money donated to his campaign coffers and people willing to walk the precincts to get out the vote for him in the 2012 elections. It is by no means an irrational thing to do, from Obama's self-centered perspective." --economist Thomas Sowell More: http://patriotpost.us/edition/2010/09/22/chronicle/print/
