Maybe Satan's Values

How the Republican Party stays in power as the "party of values" is a 21st Century wonder. A party that advocates liberalized gun laws, even in the face of this weeks tragedy in Lancaster county (by the way, shame on you Rendell). A party of bigotry. And lest we forget, this is the party that went on a witch hunt with Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky, but it has its very own long, long list of sex scandals. Here we have a party of "personal responsibility" (aka it's all your own damn fault what happened), unless you were an alcoholic survivor of a pedofile priest, like Mark Foley. Of course, this is the party of Jesus, wherein the leaders, such as Tony Perkins, blames Foley's foibles on the godless Democrats and Liberals. This is the party that didn't see it fit to get to NOLA and rescue the thousands of poor, black people from the worst ravages of Hurricane Katrina (remember Hotel Rawanda?) This is the party that has sent thousands of our young soilders--men and women--to their death based on a lie. This is the party that legalized torture.

I could, of course, go on. But, I think you get the point.
