Right and wrong

It occurred to me: The liberals are left and the conservatives right. Right? Wrong! If the conservatives are right, then the liberals must be wrong. Right? If the Democratic Party is the party of all liberals, then the Democratic Party is the wrong party; hence the GOP must be the right party. By California speak: ¿No es verdad?

As those of the far right, the Christian right, dwell only in the truth of the word, consider the liberals who won’t admit they are wrong. They, being far out in left field, are just left out with no costume for the party. However, they do try to turn the right side out and put the wrong side in. In which case all can crawl out from A Rock the wrong way!

For those undecided voters who don’t know right from wrong, may they be guided by the Democratic candidates always being the wrong ones. But in the philosophy of that Yankee seer, Yogi Berra: When the choice is between right and wrong, take it. After all, what’s left?

Just as citizen Clinton had questioned what “is” is, surely candidate Kerry needs to ponder the logic in this, too! N’est-ce pas?
