The presidential candidates probably won't be the major stars, mainly because yours truly is already sick to death of their lack of collective talent. Instead they will have minor roles - just in case a few stray Fox-News listeners happen to saunter in.
ACT I: Those Crazy Christians and Jews
Proving once again that he has cracks in his belfry, crackpot televangelist suggests that the cracks in the Washington Monument caused by the August 23 earthquake could be "a sign from God, and the natural disaster 'means that we're closer to the coming of the Lord.'"
Rabbi Yehuda Levin is apparently blind to God's message about love as he declares that the earthquake and gay marriage are connected. "'We don't hate homosexuals,' he says. 'I feel bad for homosexuals. It's a revolt against God and literally, there's hell to pay.'"
For the love of God. A pastor falls back on a fail safe message used at Tea Party rallies a year or so ago. The sign in front of his Hazlehurst, GA Baptist Church reads:
America's Voice contributor Mariano Cardoso writes about his first experience facing an anti-immigrant crowd at the Secure Communities Task Force Hearing in Arlington, VA.
Arizona, the state that wanted to deny organ transplants to the poor because it was so financially strapped, has found enough money to sue the federal government over the 1964 Voting Rights Act. "Arizona is the first state to challenge the constitutionality of sections of the federal law that forbid states from enacting a law or process that denies or limits someone's right to vote based on their race or color."
ACT III: Marching to McCarthyism
GOP Congressmen put constituents who ask tough questions on a "Watch List." Reps. Dan Webster (R-FL) and Tim Griffin (R-AR) don't want none of your bull. Guess they don't want none of your votes either.
ACT IV: Comedy Hour
Grover Norquist's most hysterical Twitter moment. His audience was rolling in the aisle and screaming with laughter. What a comedian this fat head is.
ACT V: Kiddie Korner
An online coloring book, called "We Shall Never Forget 9/11 - The Kids' Book of Freedom," book for children over five years-old is receiving some unfavorable reviews. ". . . critics say that the book portrays all Muslims as radicals or extremists. Some have also expressed concerns that the images of the Twin Towers on fire and a bullet heading for bin Laden are too graphic for children." No applause here.
GOP Congress "diverted $30 billion in bailout money allocated to help struggling homeowners prevent foreclosure in order to pay down the national debt instead."
