Auf Weidersehen

*Yawn* In the world of politics, either you're in, or you're out. Tom Delay decided to leave Congress and not seek reelection. As expected, Delay tried to come out of the whole ordeal the better man: the poor, persecuted soul that fell victim to a liberal Democrat ploy to unseat a God-fearing Texas Christian.

"I guarantee you if other offices were under the scrutiny I've been under in the last 10 years, with the Democrat Party announcing that they're going to destroy me, destroy my reputation, and that's how they're going to get rid of me, I guarantee you you're going to find, out of hundreds of people, somebody that's probably done something wrong." "You can't prove to me one thing that I have done for my own personal gain..."

In a move (literally) typical of sleazeball politicians, Tom Delay has found a loophole in Texas election law that would trigger a special election that will most likely replace his seat with yet another rubber-stamp Republican: he's relocating to Virginia. In Texas, a candidate has to lie or move out of state (post-primary) in order to be removed from the ballot. The GOP can offer up another candidate during a special election and more than likely, they'll regain Tom's seat. *Thanks to the bloggers at Burnt Orange Report for their wicked-fast reportage. More Idiocies of the Right Quote of the week:

He's trying to figure out how he can get involved in the deal down there at Duke where the lacrosse team [...] uh, supposedly, you know, raped, some, uh, hos. --Rush Limbaugh March 31, 2006

Oy. Moving on... Stephanie Miller braved the ideological-zombie attacks of Sean Hannity this past Friday. Check it out in its entirety on YouTube. Though her youthful demeanor and voice didn't match her dowdy outfit, she absolutely killed as far as shooting down Hannity's talking-points. There was some other GOP-clone on the show, but I can't remember his name. The highlight of the show came at the end when Stephanie told Sean: You're a big satanic hunk of stud meat. Sadly, I have to agree. I wont try to understand the men I find attractive: Sean Hannity, Chuck Hagel, Young Rummy, Rick Santorum... Unfortunately, none of the sacks of meat on Hannidate don't quite meet my standards...plus they're like totally into death, destruction, line-dancing, and they probably think Ann Coulter is hot. Meanwhile in McCainville John McCain totally switched his position on radical cleric Jerry Falwell. Back in 2000, he said: "Gov. Bush swung far to the right and sought out the base support of Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell. Those aren't the ideas that I think are good for the Republican Party." Yesterday, on Meet the Press, he came to his radical, right-wing senses and stated that he didn't believe Falwell was still an agent of intolerance. People change, see. Here's a smattering of Falwell's oratorical gems courtesy of Positive Atheism:
  • The idea that religion and politics don't mix was invented by the Devil to keep Christians from running their own country.-- Rev. Jerry Falwell, Sermon, July 4, 1976

  • I hope I live to see the day when, as in the early days of our country, we won't have any public schools. The churches will have taken them over again and Christians will be running them. What a happy day that will be!-- Rev. Jerry Falwell, America Can Be Saved, 1979 pp. 52-53, from Albert J. Menendez and Edd Doerr, The Great Quotations on Religious Freedom

  • I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People for the American Way -- all of them who have tried to secularize America -- I point the finger in their face and say, "You helped this happen."-- Rev. Jerry Falwell, blaming civil libertarians, feminists, homosexuals, and abortion rights supporters for the terrorist attacks of Tuesday, September 11, 2001, quoted from John F. Harris, "God Gave U.S. 'What We Deserve,' Falwell Says," The Washington Post (September 14, 2001)

  • The Jews are returning to their land of unbelief. They are spiritually blind and desperately in need of their Messiah and Savior.-- Jerry Falwell, Listen, America!

For now, I'll sit patiently and wait for the great reptilian menace to fall from the sky, signaling the beginning of the end.

The reptilian menace won’t come form above, but from the bowel of the earth…any good conspiracy kook knows that

Thanks for posting the great photos of Bush and Condoleezza. Do you have the one of Bush kissing her while her weird face looked blissful as if she just married Bush? Jesus, these people are freaks!
I have believed since 2000 that these 2 were together, but it will be difficult to prove since Condoleezza has no fat friend to blab to. I believe Bush picked her for national security advisor in the 1st place because HE COULD BE ALONE IN A ROOM WITH HER WITH A HANDY PRETEXT. She is not remotely qualified for the job (nor for her present one), so that must be it.
