All the cool kids are doing it

Cross-posted at Bring it On

Anyone who's been around here for a while knows I'm not too fond of organized religion, and that I outright loathe the use of religion as a political tool. And not just because it caused the absolute fucking moron in the Oval Office to be re-elected. To put it bluntly, anyone who attributes a tragic event to God's wrath has no fucking place in the political arena, let alone alongside a major presidential candidate.

Luckily, this time around we don't have to deal with it. After all, they wouldn't support a Democrat if they were begged, and John McCain has gone on the record on, for instance, Jerry Fallwell, that he is an "agent of intolerance." So we should expect a 2008 Presidential election free of the targeted ignorance of these mentally deficient Jesus freak theocrats, right?

It was such a nice thought, too.

What he said: “I believe that the Christian right has a major role to play in the Republican Party”

What he meant: “There’s no fucking way I win this without them so I’m going to be their whore”

Let the record show that anyone who took part in the slander of John Kerry and his "flip flops" in 2004 is a hypocrite if they vote for McCain in 2008. But then again, I suppose that calling those swiftboating squikks hypocrites is like noting that the sun is kind of hot.

I hope I only have to say this once. If you appear alongside the likes of Jerry Falwell, you are tacitly supporting his bigotry. It really is that simple.


  1. hey Bil Frist announced that he wants to run today. Think if they have enough candidates they just might defeat themselves.

  2. The first time I voted was the 2004 election. Looking back on it I don't know if I would have voted the same way. Neither Bush or Kerry appeal to me. I was an impressionable girl so I voted with the people I felt I had to impress at the time.
    I have done a little bit of growing up since then. The 2008 election makes me nervous. I love my country and I want to do what is best for it. I am hoping the next two years will give me enough time to grow up some more and find truth in myself before I vote for another president.

  3. I am not going to touch this... Due tooo, I do not mind religion... but I do loath republicans...

  4. now after saying that would it be bad that I ask...

    Come to my party
    It's my Birthday... wouldn't be a Birthday without you!  Help celebrate my
    last year as a 20-something!!!!

  5. pia: My hope is that the Christian right won't fully get behind McCain, as he called a good deal of them agents of intolerance.

    Samantha: I hope you didn't interpret this as an attack on you. It isn't. Here's to two years of edification. I'm sure we could all use it.

    Alice: Cheers

    Shayna: I have no love of religion, but that shouldn't suggest that I have a problem with it in general. I'm just referring to zealots who use it as a political tool and blame 9/11 on Jews and feminists.

    Wouldn't miss it for the world. Funny. Your last year as a twentysomething is my first.

  6. Pretty Cool Wombat!!!!!!

  7. Our one abc channel here flips over to Flawell hehe.. during the day.. and sometimes I hear his bullshit.. I am amazed at how fucking opinionated and full of general bullshit the guy is! Who the hell can be a follower with that as a leader!

  8. Humph...you just have to rub it in don't ya!!! Your just a baby...

  9. Wow, I can use my response from DawgyDoug's here too.

    If a tree falls in a forest and lands on a politician, even if you can't hear the tree or the screams, I'll bet you'd at least hear the applause.

  10. EW: Not in the least. I love it.

  11. He didn't flip-flop... he didn't flip-flop... he didn't flip-flop!!! It was Republican spin gone haywire, idiot asses (maybe I should masses... I think I'll stick with "asses") believing the shit they were fed and spineless Democrats putting up no fucking fight! Aaaaaaaahhhhhhh!!

    So yes, my way of saying great post, as always!

    Hmmmm? Wonder where I stand on this? ;-P
