IN YOUR GUT YOU KNOW SHE'S WRONG

One of the great reliefs of moving operations from the US to the UK is a sense of relief that I am finally out from under the miasmic cloud of the uniquely American form of the insane Christian Right, the demented hillbillies, the aggressively ignorant, and the grasping shadow billionaires who manipulate them. I am, of course, well aware that Britain has it’s own more than adequate portion of nasty nuts – Enoch Powell through Oswald Mosley in recent history – but I’m very happy to be spared what was previously that daily chest-beating barrage of doomsday scenarios, dates for The Rapture, lectures on how zygotes have immortal souls, the need for holy assault weapons, and images of Jesus Christ riding a dinosaur six thousand years ago, plus all the routine lemming lurches to the horrors of theocracy. But don’t get me wrong, I’m under no illusion. If the United States went zealot crazy, the impact on the rest of the world would be disastrous and perhaps even nuclear terminal (the missiles are flying) but at least I no longer have to listen to it day in and day out.

In your guts, you know she's nuts. Old anti Goldwater button. How would 1 go about getting a signed copy of Speed, Speed, Speedfreak?

Yep. Pretty much sums up everything that drives me mad about the colonies and fuels my desire to leave.

I'd give my left nut to never hear the name "Sarah Palin" ever again. OK, maybe not my left nut...but certainly a toe or something.

She don't scare me half as much as Phil Jensen. See http://motherjones.com/politics/2011/02/south-dakota-hb-1171-legalize-killing-abortion-providers

That crazy ass excuse for human intelligence was run out of Canada when she tried to spread her Right Wing bile here. Personally, I'm terrified she'll actually get somewhere in the next election. If there's any truth to all this 2012 apocalyptic jive she's certainly a contender to be one of the four horsemen.

Palin as the 5th horseman (err, horseperson)? Let's see, Death, War, Famine, Pestilence and... Dumbass.
