What A Weekend
While I was off in Nevada drinking, gambling, and firing automatic weapons (thanks to John Hlinko for the referral on that one), the political world was getting exciting. This election season is shaping up as a phenomenal exhibition of the difference between the parties – and that’s not pretty for the GOP.
On the left, you have a guy who hopes to be the first black president, a guy who hopes to be the first Hispanic president, and a candidate who hopes to be the first female president (…two if you count John Edwards).
On the right, you have a whole bunch of old white guys trying to out Christian one another.
We need to fundamentally rethink the party and the damage that has been caused by the constant pandering to the religious right.
