The last couple of days with no news was a bit refreshing, and I think I am gonna take a few more days off, as I am just sick of the political scene. I tried to get back into things this morning, and the first thing I read was Bill Kristol attempting to determine political world views by analyzing campaign Passover statements. Seriously. Up next, Red State attempts to figure out the candidate’s tax policy by examining past Hallmark Mother’s Day cards they have sent.
Maybe I should have started my day with something other than Kristol, but maybe I just need a longer break. Besides, it isn’t like anything interesting is happening. The Democratic primary isn’t going to end for another 6 months, anyway. I will be back in a few days, but I will try to throw up some open threads every now and then so you can keep us all up to date with the stupid.
*** Update ***
Apparently Red State will not be examining Hallmark cards, as they are too busy sniffing out godless communists at google. In all seriousness, this Red State piece has to be considered an early frontrunner to sweep the 2008 Golden Wingnut Awards. If you really want to sample the hilarity of that post, go deep into the comments where we are informed that Diana Ross is a gay icon and blah blah blah:
But the video itself featuring Jesus singing and dancing to a *WELL KNOWN* gay bar/nightclub anthem (Diana Ross is still a gay icon) and then getting hit by a bus is probably the most offensive thing I’ve ever seen him do. Of course, this kind of stuff is how Larry Lessig became a rockstar in the first place.
One problem- Gloria Gaynor sang I Will Survive, the song in the video that offended Red State. They are so offended, they don’t even know what they are offended about. I await their deep thoughts on Julie Newmar and Ethel Merman.
