Sex & Religous Experience
In Puritan America

More therapy. Stat!

Screwed up in the head true crime (& now S-E-X) author Suzy Spencer ("a mostly celibate, middle-aged Southern Baptist with a self-described 'terror of touch'”):
Oh yes. One time when I was living in L.A. and I was having sex with this guy and I’m lying there looking at the ceiling and over to the right filling up practically the entire ceiling, just like Woody Allen in “New York Stories” with his mother filling up the New York skyline, I’m seeing my mother’s face and she’s so upset and saying, “This is wrong! How can you be doing this?” Then I look over to the left and in a teeny tiny corner of the ceiling there is God going, “It’s OK. I don’t like this, but I understand. It’s OK.” I’m still confused about premarital sex, whether it’s right or wrong, but I know God understands and it’s OK.
We honestly don't mean to pick on this apparently-tortured-by-hallucinations-of-her-mother woman (Salon asked: "You start the book off by writing about your 'terror of touch*.' You hated to be tickled or even hugged as a child. You state flat-out that you don’t know whether this arose from abuse in your past, of which you have no memory, or whether you had simply been around so many people who had been molested that you 'absorbed' their feelings." Get that? "... simply been around so many people who had been molested that you 'absorbed' their feelings." All nice families, we assume.) but this is the nature of Southern Bab-tiss religion? A tiny, disapproving (Yet accepting. How morally relative.) hallucination in the corner of the ceiling? While "having sex?"

Their religion has been debased from the already self-centered "personal relationship w/ Jesus" to a personal hallucination starring Ceiling Cat. How truly exceptional this fucking country is.

From TPM Reader LW …
Wondering if you heard the quote from a pollster that EJ Dionne mentionned [sic] on (I think) the Rachel Maddow Show. Anyway, the pollster, according to Dionne, said, “Whwn [sic] I come out with a poll with bad news for Republicans, they want to kill me. When I come out with a poll that’s bad for Democrats, they want to kill themselves.” I think that comes really close to explaining the difference between the two parties and what has been happening since that first disastrous debate.
& to start lashing out in righteousness. Also fear & anger. And hate & pain. Rage, already! What in hell is holding you back? Oooh. Baaaaaa!

Christ, What A Whore

Please bring back the record industry so these lame-ass hos can make a living from crummy records instead of 3.5 min. adverts.Dracula in his coffin, not even the editorial staff here eats those things any more.

Wouldn't bother if we hadn't seen & captured this earlier,
Alas, it & its Stop Obama stickers were on
too public a street for any political action.
but we did, so fuck Todd Akin to hell w/ a splintered broomstick.

Bonus Quote of the Day

"Well, I've taken a look at both sides of the thing. And it seems to me that evolution takes a tremendous amount of faith. To have all of a sudden all of the different things that have to be lined up, to create something as sophisticated as life, it takes a lot of faith. I don't see it as even as a matter of science, because I don't know if you can prove one or the other."

-- Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO), from a recording obtained by Think Progress at a Tea Party meeting this week.

Warning: Anything Can Happen Day

The editor/publisher here has been awake (& functioning) since 0659. We are therefore not responsible for anything that happens from now until the sweet oblivion of sleep or a nap.

Also: Fall is here, no more typoing [sic] from only our skivvies. Now sporting pants & a T-shirt, & may have to close a window or put on a long-sleeved shirt.

(Can't believe those are too long to twit, but ...)

Twice As Long To Get Half As Far

Shocker ... Big Journalism Makes
Big Dumb Mistake

From today's e-mail, Breitbart's ghosts & ghouls can't determine the difference between recent right-wing target Martha Raddatz & long-term Lame Old Legacy Media punching bag Diane Sawyer. Possibly an occupational hazard; it must be hard to differentiate between bottle-blond newshens when you watch FoxNews to excess.
Ms. Raddatz above.
Gack. We thought it would only be fair to provide a link; they did manage to use the a pic of Ms. Sawyer in the story, but we should've known better than to start reading.
Yep, we're seeing all kinds of dutiful coverage, but as hard as some individual reporters are working, those who control The Narrative will never allow Libya to become one -- not with Their Precious One serving them up the distraction-material they crave, like Big Bird and abortion.
(Big John Nolte's bolding, for no apparent reason.)

Waitaminit! What's this? We're on to something here!! Calling a lying political opponent a liar is like herding Jews into boxcars for a long ride to the east. Exactly like genocide, see?

So, John Nolte, you fucking Nazi, stop this now!
But once again Obama's not challenged, he's simply allowed to get away with saying he told us what he knew when he knew it.

Which is a bald-faced lie.

But because Obama's the Sun God, he's allowed to look into The Face of ABC News and lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie.
One "lie" for each of the six million John Nolte killed w/ his bare hands, we guess.
What is especially ironic about Sawyer's rehab job yesterday, is that it's interviews like this that helped to create the Obama debate debacle. Obama's media pals are so desperate to protect Obama and to have him like them, that they never ever challenge their Sun God. Which is why he was a deer in the headlights when faced with a Mitt Romney who challenged, pushed, and pressured like the media's supposed to.
How can we convincingly mock someone who thinks calling Obama "their Sun God" (Because all the Big Bird-loving abortionists allegedly something, something ... But what, exactly?) is the height of mockery?

We'd think it was all a sad joke but for the hateful bitterness.

Open Letter To The King Of The Bloggers

Bugger off, you twit.Maybe if all his fingers were magically broken & Sully had to dictate his daily wig-out to one of his drones he'd realize how full of liquid crap he is, although we must assume he's literally so in love w/ the sound of his own voice as well as his typed excrescence that he probably wouldn't notice or care.

Romney's Hands Must Not Be Clean,
Nor His Heart Pure

New slogan for the Mitt Movement. Yes, it's bullshit from a moron. Here Mitt indicates his love for "sport:"
But why wouldn't they use the original? Oh.
New American Standard Bible (©1995)
He who has clean hands and a pure heart, Who has not lifted up his soul to falsehood And has not sworn deceitfully.
Here, a Mormon uses the original verse from the Psalm while detailing his porno addiction. (We wonder if that all began at a Marriott.)

Righteousness:As to whiny complaints about being accused of talking through one's magic Mormon hat, & all that, "who the cap fits, he must wear it."

We Read, You Deride

The only paragraph you need to read from Jonathan Chait reviewing a couple books at The New Republic, essential sentenceclause bolded:
Already the extremism of the party has advanced to such a point that its most fervent elements are identified less by their ideology—which is nearly impossible to distinguish any more from that of the mainstream—than by the degree to which their detachment from reality departs from paranoia as a mere figure of speech and approaches actual, clinical paranoia. “Radical” Republicans believe that Obama has created death panels, may have been secretly born overseas, and is plotting a United Nations invasion. The “mainstream” Republicans believe in goldbuggery and a massive plot by climate scientists, and deny the dramatic rise in income inequality in America.
It hasn't been a question of politics, ideology or even the theocratic lunacy displayed in the item immediately below for some time w/ these people; as Chait suggests, this is psychological. Once being dropped on the head (accidentally or intentionally) at an early age is ruled out, the 10¢ diagnosis would be childhood abuse; home schooling or worse.

Onward Confederate Christian Soldiers

Have you seen this? No, really.
Battle Flag of The Holy Bible.
Have you? Can it be made any clearer that Confederate Jesus is a racist? As are Confederates, the Arkansas GOP & these astounding Arkansas legislators:
After Arkansas Republicans disavowed a book by state representative Jon Hubbard (R-AR) claiming slavery was “a blessing in disguise” for African Americans, Hubbard’s colleague, state Rep. Loy Mauch (R-AR) has been outed by the Arkansas Times for his pro-slavery, pro-Confederacy letters to the editor over the past decade. Mauch’s run for reelection this year is backed by the Arkansas Republican Party.

In letters to the Democrat-Gazette, Mauch vehemently defended slavery and repeatedly suggested Jesus condoned it:
If slavery were so God-awful, why didn’t Jesus or Paul condemn it, why was it in the Constitution and why wasn’t there a war before 1861?The South has always stood by the Constitution and limited government. When one attacks the Confederate Battle Flag, he is certainly denouncing these principles of government as well as Christianity.
His other letters call Abraham Lincoln a Marxist and celebrate the Confederate flag as “a symbol of Christian liberty vs. the new world order.” He also organized a conference in 2004 praising John Wilkes Booth and calling for the removal of an Abraham Lincoln statue. Mauch has been supported mainly by contributions from the Republican Party and other Arkansas candidates. Now, the state GOP is pulling all funds from Mauch, Hubbard and another state legislative candidate, Charlie Fuqua, who wants to expel all Muslims from the country and thinks rebellious children should receive the death penalty.

Though the party committee has cut them off, the three candidates are still receiving support from other Arkansas politicians, including U.S. Reps Steve Womack (R) and Tim Griffin (R). Mauch has also been endorsed by the National Rifle Association and the Arkansas Right to Life PAC.
Beyond denial; right there in, if you'll pardon us, ebony & ivory. (Well, gray & black because it's all about the nuance here.) And so far beyond any possible parody or spoof it has to be true. The nut-picking of Loy Mauch's letters to the editor is not to be missed, don't be satisfied w/ TP's recap. And Rep. Rep. Mauch must've said/done something else inane; this image trotted out by the Arkansas Times & then TP has been in the Just Another Blog &c.™ editorial hard-drive since November 2010. When not-a-theocrat Mauch was elected.

No Work Today

To the best of our limited understanding, today Canadians have the day off to thank Xtopher Columbus, the mythical & possibly Polack sailor, who discovered the New World & thereby gave Canadians the opportunity not to grow up in the third world hell of Ukraine.

That's what we heard, anyway.

Southern Strategy Surprise

Guy at Slate claims no two ways about it, the Republican Party is racist. Institutionally & structurally, like; he doesn't accuse socially tolerant country club types of being Klan members.

Very long. (Skip pg. 1, even.)
And all those poll-analysis geek websites that continuously report vast majorities for the GOP in the South among white voters (far greater than those in the North) somehow can’t see their way to be forthright about why this is.

I’m not saying that the vast majority of Southern whites vote GOP only because of race. But I think Rick Perlstein’s argument, based on careful polling data, suggests that it is a crucial factor that makes an electoral difference.

Let me put it this way. Is it just an accident, a coincidence, that in presidential elections ever since 1964, the core states of the Confederacy—Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina—and their hundred or so electoral votes have been solidly Republican?

Is it any accident that they fly Confederate flags from their statehouse, as in South Carolina, or incorporate Confederate flag symbols into their state flags as in Mississippi and Alabama, or allow them to be flaunted on state-issued license places, even passing laws that declare they must be respected. If you’ve traveled much in the South (as I have), you see them flying too from courthouses, municipal buildings, and other private establishments. If it’s not unconstitutional, it is, frankly, disgusting.
More righteousness follows. Good alliterative adjectives. ("Rancid racist history," for ex.) Fuck the South, as they say.

This may be why Rosenbaum's so irked:
It’s not just an intellectual exercise deciding whether Southern racism is still a factor. The current Supreme Court could rule the Voting Rights Act unconstitutional this term, on the grounds that all states are morally equivalent and history should play no role in assessing their behavior. They would be wrong to do so.
News to us. Is a Tenth Amendment A.G. from the sticks suing to overturn the V.R.A.?

And the Bob Dylan ending (Not kidding.) is a letdown. Who does he think he is, Saul Alinsky?

Actually Alive

There's a line by the Mad Meltz about a thing so awful it cannot be effectively disguised w/ a gallon of dogsweat. That was 40+ yrs. ago; now The Daily Caller is redesigned, but it's not disguising anything.
Someone there must not like Mick.

Addendum: The masochistic could do worse than read The NYT about Tucker Swanson McNear Carlson & his little operation.

We rest our case:
And he gained attention for his trademark bow tie, which he stopped wearing on TV in 2006. “I had no idea how much people hated bow ties,” he said, adding, “It took me 20 years to realize that wearing a bow tie is like wearing a middle finger around your neck.”
In Tucker's case, more like hanging his scrotum around his neck.
