An "oxymoron" isn't an cleaning agent like Oxyclean it's more like a "fine mess" or "congressional wisdom," or "a blind eye." Yes, an "oxymoron" is a contradiction of terms. What do you think? Is "truth in politics" an oxymoron? It's a question I ask myself many times in the course of a day. After all, it's what I do--evaluate the news and deliver it to my readers.

In today's news, Joe Biden awoke from his lazy slumber to call the Tea Party "TERRORISTS." That's right, "Vice President Joe Biden joined House Democrats in lashing tea party Republicans Monday, accusing them of having “acted like terrorists” in the fight over raising the nation’s debt limit, according to several sources in the room.
Biden was agreeing with a line of argument made by Rep.Mike Doyle (D-Pa.) at a two-hour, closed-door Democratic Caucus meeting. We have negotiated with terrorists,” an angry Doyle said, according to sources in the room. “This small group of terrorists have made it impossible to spend any money.”
Biden, driven by his Democratic allies’ misgivings about the debt-limit deal, responded: “They have acted like terrorists.”Doyle has a "BS" degree from Penn State and prior to his Congressional position, he was a "business man." Wow. Do you think I can get a job at the White House?
He said; He said

Now Doyle "regrets" his using this term and states he SHOULD have used "hostage takers." "If only he'd said "hostage-takers" instead of "terrorists." U.S. Rep. Mike Doyle, D-Forest Hills, said he wasn't comparing Tea Party members with terrorists when he used the word during a closed-door caucus meeting Monday, but was expressing frustration at President Obama's negotiating tactics, which he said gave in too quickly to GOP demands in the debt ceiling debate.
"Had I simply said hostage-taker, there wouldn't be this reaction. I certainly wasn't out to defame anybody," said Doyle, who couldn't recall the exact statement he made. "I wasn't talking about the Tea Party. I was talking about the tactic (of) telling us if we don't go along with this bad deal, they're going to blow the economy up."
To add insult to injury, "Biden told Democratic lawmakers that the deal would take away the tea party’s “weapon of mass destruction” — the threat of a default on U.S. debt obligations.
“They have no compunction about blowing up the economy to get what they want,” Doyle told POLITICO after the meeting."
It is sounds more like they need weapons of MATH INSTRUCTION (more fingers and toes) so they can COUNT to $14,346,961,183,760.84.Pants on Fire
This sounds a lot like a contradiction to me. First JOE said it and then MIKE said it. Nonetheless, if you're going to LIE GUYS--GET YOUR STORY STRAIGHT!
And please Joe, go back to sleep. I've said it before and I'll say it again--READ MY LIPS--the real victims of "terror" are the AMERICAN PEOPLE. We are the ones who have been held hostage over the "Debt Ceiling." Just a reminder, it's our money and our lives which with you are playing.
