Of Red Cows And Rabbis

The corporate media outlets are either clueless, in the case of the major networks or papers, or duplicitous in the case of Fox news when it comes to the nasty little corner that is the Rethuglican wing of the Republican party This coalition of nudge-nudge wink-wink racists, military fetishists and some of the most truly bizarre cults in modern Christianity. Why oh why does the media ignore these dangerous wingnuts? They are the creators of the central modern conservative policies. Israel ,our infallible ally right or wrong, finds its roots in Dominionist Christianity

Dominionist Christianity was once just an amusing branch of the Republican party that somehow managed to join anti Semitism with zionism. Claiming to be biblical literalists, they torture the most bizarre beliefs out of some mythology that was pretty strange to begin with. John McCain has suddenly found himself reeking of the stench from some of his best dominionist friends, John Hagee and Rod Parsley.

Rethuglican elder statesmen are forever showing up at "Conservative Citizen's Council" luncheons and delivering gaseous bilge about family values. The CCC perhaps should be better known by its old name "White Citizens Council", or the Klan with neckties and white shirts.

In the intermountain West the militias and Birchers run the Rethuglicans. In the old Slave Owning South the clinic bombers call the shots. Anti-coastal ruralists pull the strings in the Midwest. Doesn't anybody ever notice?

Just To Annoy Some Of My Closest Relatives....

I think I will go to California this Summer and gay marry an illegal alien. A couple of my Republican siblings (You know who you are) should have a perfect right wing meltdown of combined moral and nativist outrage. Don't say I never do anything for you.

No Cute Headline.

Huckabee, in his good-ole-boy Southern redneck Republican way, has broached the subject, so I feel free to discuss it. The elephant in the coat closet is the strong possibility of an assassination attempt on Barack Obama. There are tons of cracker gun nuts with a raging desire to see the hopes of America's first black President thwarted. A lot of us old farts saw our country wrenched apart by assassin's bullets. Had Bobby Kennedy lived, would the Viet Nam war ended in 1969? If Oswald had missed his ride to work, perhaps that war never would have happened in the first place. Perhaps Nixon never would have been president, and Watergate would just be the name of an obscure DC hotel. There is an unprecedented pressure building up behind the Republican political dam, and a simple murder will not change that, but it will crush the hopes of millions who have invested in the message that is Obama. Politics shouldn't be a personality driven process, but none the less it is. People elect other people, not ideas or values.

The Secret Service is well aware of this whole elevated threat level against Senator Obama, and I'm sure they are doing their level best to protect the man, but life is fragile and people, even racist nutcases, are ingenious. I'm holding my breath until January 20th. If I prayed, I'd do that too.
