Mr. Gibbs, I knew Ronald Reagan, Ronald Reagan was a President of mine, Barrak Huessain Obama is NO Ronald Reagan.
So, Obama must be a Republican, first Lincoln, now Reagan.
Bob Parks gave a speech about Dems trying to steal our history. I think it’s on his web-site at Black and Right.
Rush was really ticked today by the Obamamedia’s attempts to link Obama’s vision and Reagan’s vision.
More like Jimmy Carter!
Pray for America

Nearly all the "oxymorons" listed aren't really oxymorons at all. The word literally means "pointed dullness" or "sharp stupidity." When done right, it has a poetic or paradoxical quality about it, as in Sappho's "bittersweet."
Most of these constructions don't make the cut; they're simply two superficially contradictory words paired with each other.
I do like "genuine imitation" though. Funny stuff.
I wasn't sure, but I thought it was funny.
No, because it's not a phrase of "pointed stupidity" that serves a poetic thought.
It's just straightforward stupidity -- brazen and ridiculous, that only serves the Marxist's inflated ego.

Oh, wait. that's coming...
