Liberals are not the enemy. Satan is.

Last night at work, I was unfortunate enough to have to listen to Ann Coulter on Piers Morgan Tonight on CNN during my lunch.  As she was rambling on with her usual anti-Liberal rhetoric, I was reminded of a time when I too bought into the crap the cable networks tried to pass off as news and blamed the Liberals for the deterioration of morality in American society.  As she plowed through  her laundry list of ‘Liberals-are-evil’ complaints, the only thing that I could think was: “Liberals are not the enemy.  Satan is.”…kinda neat to see how open your eyes become when you choose to not be blinded by the world.
