  1. Remember the Blues Brothers were on a mission from God, too.
    Besides the lunacy that is Cruz, I seriously doubt his eligibility due to the circumstances of his Canadian birth, eh?

    1. Jono -- At least the Blues Brothers could make music. Cruz just makes right-wing noise.

  2. Writing vows in blood, self flagellation and notes on "prevention of the seed." Thanks for another trip around the crazy religious right, Ahab.

    1. Donna -- Nothing is quite as trippy as reading up on the Religious Right.

  3. I love how the Mormon church has distanced itself from the Oregon issue. It's convenient that the Oregon men's religion is the source of their rhetoric, but the church surely doesn't stand beside them.

    1. Heather -- This must be embarassing for the church and awkward for the Oregon dorks.
