Idiots on Parade

An interesting twist in the Florida/Michigan primary issue - Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz says that the date for the primary was set by the Republican-led legislature, who inserted the provision into an overall election package that included provisions such as a manual recount and a paper trail. Wasserman-Schultz explains that none of the Democrats wanted to vote against the latter, so they ended up voting for the former, despite that putting their delegates at risk.

Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), the man who brought us H.R. 847, On Recognizing the Importance of Christmas and the Christian Faith, remarked on Friday that 'The radical Islamists, the al-Qaida ... would be dancing in the streets in greater numbers than they did on Sept. 11 because they would declare victory in this war on terror.'

King arrived at this conclusion by way of Obama's middle name (which King went out of the way to avoid using, since it holds 'different meaning' for the terrorists), Obama's stand on withdrawing troops from Iraq, and his childhood in Kenya (where he attended the madrassa-that-wasn't-a-madrassa).

An Israeli researcher claims that Moses' encounter with God on Mount Sinai - which resulted in his returning with the Ten Commandments - may have been due to hallucinogens rather than divine inspiration.

The problem with that idea is that if Moses was seeing burning shrubbery because he was on drugs, he returned with some pretty cogent laws. If that wasn't Moses' work, then someone came up with it afterward - bringing into question both Hebrew and Christian doctrine.

This isn't the first time that researchers have come up with the idea; another researcher had suggested Christ had shared psychoactive mushrooms with His Apostles, accounting for some of their behaviors and accounts.

People suggesting either a Hillary/Obama ticket or the converse are banking on the supporters of the proposed VP holding their noses and voting.

Hillary will not become more palatable if her arse is stapled to Obama's coattails. She's a bad deal for America, and I don't want her anywhere near the White House.
