Rachel Maddow Gets It

Having been an evangelical Christian before, I know exactly what it is like to really believe the world is ending soon. Unfortunately, I have a feeling that many non-Christians don't really understand that these people really believe this stuff or have any idea how popular this thinking is. Let us remember that 68% of Republicans do not believe in evolution AT ALL according to the recent Gallup poll. Nothing can be done to persuade these people of things they refuse to acknowledge. It is easy to be a Republican when you think everything happens due to God's will. The same mindset is prevalent in the new age community where any event can be rationalized as a planned lesson from on high, and nobody should get all up in arms over gross inequality because karma irons everything out. When you believe that Father God is watching and controlling everything, and that the world is ending soon, of course global warming doesn't matter. Of course health care isn't a great issue. And a Democrat like Obama speeds up the coming of the one world government which will be ruled by the antichrist, whereas making America an outcast to the rest of the world (and as different as possible from Europe) merely means to these people that we are bucking Satan's grand plan. If you think these thoughts do not go through the heads of tens of millions of Americans before they enter the poll booths, think again. I was once one of them.

This was a very good post.

Yesterday, I saw, and approached, a book with a woman's body on its cover. "Ann Coulter," the author's name read. I was vaguely aware that she was some type of (psychotic) political journalist celebrity figure, but otherwise knew nothing about her. I still don't. I got closer and closer to the book cover, trying to get a better view of Ann Coulter. Just inches away, I noticed that her mouth was--I can think of no other word for it--ajar.

Yes, her mouth was ajar.

And then it struck me all at once. Ann a lizard. She isn't even a member of our genus and species--not by the very wildest stretch of the imagination, not even by a clean break with reality precipitated by the most powerful hallucinogens.

Just moments ago, I found her website and read this on it:

"But as long as the nation is obsessed with historic milestones, is no one going to remark on what a great country it is where a mentally retarded woman can become speaker of the house?"

This is pure hatred, Aaron. It's unworthy of any human being. Therefore, it's a good thing that Ann Coulter isn't one.

I believe in freedom of speech. I do not, however, believe in freedom to abuse others. This is a violent, poisonous lizard that needs to be kept away from humans in order to protect us.

Here we have yet another example of a universe that not only permits, but seems to breed, malevolence.
