    It's over, the right wing is now officially too stupid to parody. They came close with Sarah Palin when all Tina Fey had to do was repeat her statements verbatim but this is a new level.

    Now it's one thing to mistake The Onion for a serious news source and respond. It is another thing entirely to know what you are responding to and crank up the outrage machine anyway. I don't know how you make fun of them anymore. There is nothing I could ever dream of that would be dumber than what they come up with themselves.

    I've said it before, and I will say it again. I pray nightly to His-Noodlieness that the republicans continue down this path. Continue to entrench, continue to believe that they just had the wrong candidate, continue to eat their own, and continue to believe that they lost to the "entitlement culture". They are working on consolidating Democratic leadership for decades to come, and I absolutely approve.

    Last two presidential elections the Republicans selected arguable, the two most moderate of the available candidates when pretty much only republicans are voting. They then go and select two very conservative VP candidates as running mates to 'energize the base' that just selected the moderates. At least this time they didn't pick a running mate out of the special-ed class. It would seem these decisions are not being made to make the 'people' happy but those who are bankrolling the whole mess.

    While I agree, it does scare me that the crazier they get, the more chances they have to actually win and the rest of us are stuck with crazy running sh!t.

    If anyone else saw Mike Huckabee on The Daily Show post election, you would know just how crazy they are.

    I don't recall an election prior to 2008 where the Republican VP candidates gave me reason to doubt whether or not they were capable of doing the job (despite obvious political differences). The choice of Sarah Palin for VP was shocking because the GOP picked someone who not only was clearly under qualified, but didn't even know the job description.

    Didn't see that episode, but did see Huckabee on during the primaries. And I have to say, I liked the guy, seemed to be a rational, intelligent politician. Then he came out of the closet for the Chick-Filet of Jesus anti-gay day. Sorry to say but I had to go straight Dem. ticket this last go around. Safe to assume at this point that the GOP really are Republitards Hell bent on infusing Christianity into government.

    Thanks

    Both of them skirted the real issue, separation of church and state.



    If you are Governing by Christian principles you are in effect endorsing a state sanctioned religion, which is indeed an "egregious violation of religious liberty". Does it not say that in the first amendment that the Federal government shall choose no one religion ? How does this not get more attention ?

    I have no problems with people worshiping or not. But the idea that one religion is mightier than an other is fvcking appalling. We have a constitutional right to not be governed by someone else's religious views.

    Joe Biden said it best when pressed on the issue of abortion during the VP debate. He said that he stood by his church's position, but would not enforce his views on any other religious group (hindus, Muslims, etc.).

    What he F'ing said!!!!

    Are these not by and large the same group of people who want strict adherence to the Constitution? They hypocrisy is mind boggling..........

    This is the exact same kind of thinking that caused me to walk away from evanglical Christianity. Preach strict adherence to the Text but regularly misuse said Text...........I'm done........
