Sorry to have been missing for so long, but Blogger doesn't seem to agree with something on my system when using AOL, so I can't post anything. I discovered, though, that using IE I can post, so I'm back!
Anyway, I can't begin to tell you how disgusted I am over the whole Rush L. uproar. That man is just sick. Not the kind of sick where we would have to feel sorry for him, take him chicken soup, place a cool washcloth on his fevered brow. The kind of sick where one should call the police and the local Insane Asylum, and have him put away.
Although, I do have to say that while RL is truly disgusting, Santorum and Gingrich don't seem much better, and Mitt... well, he's just creepy. He's seeking to become the first AI elected president.
Santorum wants religion to run the country. He's trying to prove that our Founding Fathers always intended it that way.Guess he didn't really understand the history classes he took. There's absolutely no way in Hell Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, et al, ever dreamed that the Church would ever hold sway in the American government. They weren't, for the most part, even really Christian. Unless you include Deism as one sect of Christianity. They didn't so much believe in "God the Father" as they did in "God the Watchmaker", a very different sort of God. And they made clear their intentions in numerous writings about religion and government, not just in the Constitution. And given that most of them actually wrote the Constitution, I think it behooves us to give them credit for knowing what they intended.
And then there's Gingrich. He doesn't really want to be president, I've decided. He wants to be the American God/King. Hmmm. People are losing their homes, going hungry, losing hope? Let's build a moon colony, and when He has packed the colony with 1,300 of the right kind of people, let's make it the 51st royal colony, er, state. The Constitution doesn't agree with Him? Well, the Constitution is wrong. Narcissicism is just wonderful, isn't it?
