So Sayeth The Savage

Here's a quote from Dan Savage over at SLOG referring to Huckabeeeeesssssss latest idiocy about bringing the Constitution of the United States more in line with "God's standard"

"There’s a lot of interesting stuff in the Bible about family life—when it’s permissible, excuse me, righteous to allow your daughters to be raped, or the correct way to sell your daughters into slavery, or when you’re allowed to kill your children—but Mike isn’t talking about any of that. Not to worry, heterosexuals. None of the crazy-ass crap in the Bible that applies to you will be written into the U.S. Constitution under a Huckabee administration, just the crazy-ass crap that applies to the homos.

When I brought up the fact that fundamentalists ignore plenty of stuff in the bible that applies to them—like a ban on eating lobster—he assured me that Jesus’ blood on the cross he redeemed even lobster. “But not me?” I asked. “No, not homosexuals.”

Rejoice, shellfish! You are redeemed and the followers of Christ can boil you alive and serve you with melted butter and hush puppies! Repent, homosexuals, for the blood of Christ wasn’t powerful enough to redeem you."

This would be funny if it weren't so downright frightening. I went through a period where I wasn't too concerned about the eventual Democratic candidate because ANY of them would be better than what we have now, but I'm realizing that I better vote for whomever has the best chance against the GOP.

I really think the best chance against the GOP is Obama. There is too much negative baggage with a Clinton re-run. And I don't trust her. I feel Clinton would be just as secretive and reflexively attack dog as Bush has been. you have me started, Obama thinks. I know he would be a more thrughtful, even President. He will not be afraid to here what other's have to say. As for the whole experience meme the Clinton camp keeps pushing? Obama has more legistlative ecperience than Clinton - two years more.

Anyway..Go Obama!
