YO! I just surfed onto the F-Word "News" Channel's latest piece of anti-American fecal de bull: Britt Hume's documentary on the separation of church and state. The music used on the soundtrack sounds like that which MSNBC uses on it's prison documentaries every evening.

Anyone who surfs these hallowed and skeptical halls thinking that there isn't an effort to alter this liberal democracy into a covert theocracy needs to watch this right wing propaganda piece.

OY!

OY!

As indeed, anyone who follows the antics of Perkins, Dobson, and Rocky Roy, among other psychotic clowns knows well.

But more effective than these are their more rabid followers. They are willing to send the rule of law and the Constitution down the tubes at a quiet word from the leaders. Check out Randall Terry for an example of someone who never bombed an abortion clinic nor shot a physician, but suggested that it might be a good idea. He was the one who made the general threat against the clinics, and their staffs (paraphrased): "We'll find you and punish you!"

If these peckerheads ever manage to actually get organized with each other, they will be a much larger problem. Fortunately, many of them are too busy with their individual power trips, and indeed, stealing, a'la Kent Hovind, to get much going beyond spouting trash and endorsing second-rate politicians like G.W. Bush.

"If only we could impeach on the basis of criminal stupidity, 90% of the Rethuglicans and half of the Democrats would be thrown out of office." ~~ P.Z. Myres

I think the bully pulpit of TV news is more significant than the Randall Terry's getting a bullhorn in a news clip on an abortion protest or a Schiavo water run.

Here is another example:
