Ted Rall for July 03, 1999
The Linguist Man 1: George Quincy Bush is driving me nuts. His "compassionate conservative" schtick implies that we republicans are all mean and don't care about the downtrodden! Man 2: But you could also interpret it literally. Maybe he means to simply reiterate his belief that conservatism is compassionate in a redundant kind of way. Of course, you guys are cruel and soulless. Man 1: People like you will be killed after the election.
