From the "We knew they were bugfuck insane, but now THIS?!?" department.....

...if Mad Magazine will kindly forgive the liberal paraphrasing.

Well, the party of the sanctimonious mule-boners, the rabid anti-homo, closeted boy buggerers, the Jesus-preaching mass murdering torturers, the fetus-at-the-dinner-table family values team, the American-ideals-championing terrorist backers, the free-market-touting plutocrats, the freedom-touting prison wardens, the "pro-life" executioners, the Homeland Security-protecting drunk driving gun nuts, the tough-guy draft dodgers, the governmental honesty-restoring liars and cheats, the "heritage-cherishing" destroyers of our political legacy, the coalition-building destroyers of national and international solidarity have managed yet again to blow minds with a remarkable "twofer" that is surely worthy of joining the annals of illustrious hypocrisy for which they have no historical or contemporary peers:

Larry C. Northern, president of the local gun club and model citizen showed his support for our troops by driving his pickup over their memorial crosses.

Also today, the Associated Press has just reported that Bush's Supreme Court nominee John G. Roberts, while under the Reagan Administration (and before his dark days with rabies-berserk Republican pitbull Kenneth Starr) wrote that a different sort of memorial -- one erected in honor of aborted fetuses -- would be an effective way to draw attention to America's "Abortion Tragedy".

Words fail at this point, folks.

Quote of the Day: As I walk through this wicked world
Searching for light in the darkness of insanity
I ask myself "Is all hope lost?"
"Is there only pain and hatred and misery?"

And each time I feel like this inside
There's one thing I wanna know,
What's so funny 'bout peace, love and understanding?
