.... because I kinda couldn't get it together yesterday, but I didn't fool you, did I?
Let’s get started by awarding this week’s WTF award to Virginia Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, aka “Long Dong Silver” for those of you who remember his confirmation hearings.
Virginia, a supporter of the Tea Party movement, has created a nonprofit lobbying group whose website will organize activism around a set of conservative "core principles," she said. The group plans to issue score cards for Congress members and be involved in the November election.
Now here’s the kicker: She said it would accept donations from various sources -- including corporations -- as allowed under campaign finance rules recently loosened by the Supreme Court -- a decision made possible in part by her husband’s vote of support.
WTF! If stuff like this doesn’t scare the crap out of you, you’re just not paying attention.
And while we’re on the subject of scary crap… Anyone got kids in the
public school system? Texas
Gone -- the philosophy of Thomas Jefferson. Replaced by religious right icon, John Calvin.
Gone -- any teaching of the Constitutional separation of Church and State
Gone -- any teaching of the difference between sex and gender in sociology classes because it “might lead students into the world of transvestites, transsexuals and who knows what else.”
Gone -- any teaching about liberal or minority (aka “civil”) rights groups. Replaced by studies about leading conservative groups, including Phyllis Schlafly, the Contract With America, the Heritage Foundation, the Moral Majority and the National Rifle Association.”
Are we having fun yet?
Glenn Beck takes on Jesus…
…and manages to piss off Catholics, Mormons and Christians of all denominations. Could he possibly have gone too far this time? Oh, please God. Say yes.
On his radio show last week, Beck told his listeners that they should “run as fast as you can” from any church that preached “social or economic justice” because those were code words for Communism and Nazism.
The leader of the National Council of Churches had this response:
“Mr. Beck called for his listeners to disregard central tenets of their faith because they do not conform to his political ideology. He is advocating that they abandon the full Gospel message in favor of a hollow idol, and he is doing so for worldly gain. His statements cannot be allowed to stand unchallenged.”
Jesus had this response:
Robbery Industry Hit Hard By Recession...
A Riverside County, California, woman armed with a semi-automatic pistol robbed 11 customers at the La Chicanita Market for a total take of $6.00 before fleeing the scene in an old car... She was last spotted heading for the nearest Starbucks.
Finally, lest I be accused of not calling out the Democrat sleazebags... Much has been said and printed about "Tickle Me Elmo" Eric Massa, Congressman from NY, busted for groping a subordinate. He even managed to out-crazy Glenn Beck on Beck's own show. Quite a feat. But it really takes Saturday Night Light to do this whacked-out perv justice.
So was it worth the wait...?
