Quote of the day

The radical religious right has succeeded in taking over one of America's great political parties. The country is not yet a theocracy but the Republican Party is, and they are driving American politics, using God as a battering ram on almost every issue: crime and punishment, foreign policy, health care, taxation, energy, regulation, social services and so on." -- Bill Moyers

YEP! Bill is entirely right.
Which is why, even though Obama is still an unknown, he is looking ever so much better than the repuglican fundies are, especially now that they've got a vice-president who doesn't believe in sex education and believes we should have prayer in schools. Who believes that abortion should be outlawed.

I dare anyone to tell me that Obama would do the same damn thing. This country WILL become a theocracy (or theoCRAZY if you ask me) if repugs are allowed to keep the presidency.
