Wednesday Afternoon Moses Blogging
I think it’s obvious by now that the McCain campaign has always been and always will be until election day a soulless black hole into which is mightily sucked virtually every right wing lunatic in the universe, including a Rush Limbaugh who valiantly resisted its irresistible gravitational pull. Among countless others, over the last year we’ve seen hurtling toward the Straight Talk Express lobbyists, two insane evangelists, Col. Bud Day, Phil Gramm and Joe Lieberman.
Joe Lieberman, as with virtually all the moral black hole fodder that’s gotten sucked into McCain’s orbit, has proven to be a loose cannon. Because even though McCain belatedly let drop from his sleeve the hole card that was John Hagee, Lieberman is still taking up his cause. In fact, Jesse Hamilton of the Hartford Courant pretty much has Lieberman’s stubbornness nailed when he writes,
Though McCain and Lieberman have been nearly inseparable on the campaign trail, Lieberman hasn't followed McCain's example and disavowed Hagee. Instead, the Connecticut independent senator has been demonstrating, as in his campaigning for the Republican, that he'll do exactly what he wants to do.
At the Christians United for Israel confab at Washington last night, Holy Joe said, “Dear friends, I can only imagine what the bloggers of today would have had to say about Moses and Miriam.” It ought to be noted that this is the second year in a row in which Lieberman compared Hagee to Moses.
So, in Holy Joe’s fevered mind, this is what we would’ve seen a couple of thousand years ago:
SF Chronicle: Is the Exodus All Exit Strategy?
The SF Chronicle published a story today that pretty much says it all. Moses’ Exodus is not only a bust but apparently, after going on 40 years, it appears that God’s Chosen One has only an exit strategy with no entrance strategy whatsoever.
If Moses was smart, he’d cut and run and hightail it back to Egypt. It’s been going on four decades now and Moses is still insisting there’s a Promised Land. In stubbornly insisting on getting his way, Moses stood by while millions of innocent Egyptians died during ten, count ’em, ten terrorist attacks with an 11th terrorist attack when he turned the Red Sea as a weapon against the Pharaoh’s Egyptian soldiers who were trying to save them from their own confusion…
Forget the fact that Holy Joe is using a religious forum from which to launch a pre-emptive salvo about national security (Read: Israel’s national security). This wacko that Republicans put back into the Senate still insists on painting John Hagee as a Truthiness Giver who was martyred by those evil lib’ral bloggers, despite the fact that McCain was forced by political expediency to jettison that crazy fat fuck from the giant sucking black hole of his campaign.
