Sex With Ducks (… and Pat Robertson)

The other day, Pat Robertson on the 700 Club that same-sex marriage was the equivalent to “sex with a duck“.

…Coming from an Old Goat who hasn’t see his own genitals since the Nixon Administration, I’d say it’s well worth the response!

Since you mentioned it, Pat…

The Puerto Rican Buddha

LipsThe Republicans never seem to run out of utter tomfoollery when it comes to Judge Sonia Sotomayor appointment to the US Suprme Court.  When Rush Limbaugh began screaming about her affiliations with a non-profit, non-partisan advocacy group called “La Raza? (or, the National Council of La Raza).  Rush called the group “a hate group” concluding that Sotomayo “brings a form of bigotry and racism to the court” akin to that of Louisiana’s favorite Grand Duke Wizard, David Duke.

But then G. Gordon Liddy jumped on the Hate Wagon by going out on his radio show and saying:

I understand that they found out today that Miss Sotomayor is a member of La Raza, which means in illegal alien, “the race.” And that should not surprise anyone because she’s already on record with a number of racist comments.

One would have ask these crazy hate-mongers: “Would they call the NAACP a racist group?”

My favorite is when Liddy continues on:

Let’s hope that the key conferences aren’t when she’s menstruating or something, or just before she’s going to menstruate. That would really be bad. Lord knows what we would get then.

So, not only is G. Gordon Liddy a racist slob, he’s doing a bang-up job attracting new women-voters to the GOP by being a sexist pig, too!

Walk out on the stage… “The National Review Online” (via Kos):

Are we to assume that the Republicans don’t know the difference between a Puerto Rican person and a person from Asia?

We need an updated cartoon from Mike Luckovich:

The Church of Guns

fructose_boostKen Pagano, Pastor of New Bethel Church of Louisville, KY has great new plans for the upcoming Fourth of July services:  He’s encouraging all of his parishoners to pack some heat.

“We’re just going to celebrate the upcoming theme of the birth of our nation,” said pastor Ken Pagano. “And we’re not ashamed to say that there was a strong belief in God and firearms — without that this country wouldn’t be here.”

Does anybody remember when church was to be a place of worship?  For me as a child, church was a time of reflection on the life of Christ, a study on the will of God The Father and a notation to reflect the Holy Spirit as the service moved your soul.

Pastor Pagano seems to have figured out how to ignore God this upcoming Fourth of July.  He’s bringing his own new and improved Holy Trinity: Smith & Wesson and The Holy NRA.

I wonder if Pastor Pagano feels he’s bringing around his own Protestant version of “Vatican II“, and I’m suspecting he’ll do it with a semi-automatic.  He can always preach that the Holy NRA moved his soul to go out, and preach the bullets to every the whole creation!

He says he’s not ashamed of what he’s doing, but I think he should be.

Go in Peace; and don’t shoot your eye out!
