JESUS FREAKS, OUT IN THE STREETS*
This is nothing new, but Bill O'Reilly pisses me off. When I was in Israel a few weeks ago, my girlfriend and I were in one of these 'Minerals-R-Us' type places near the Dead Sea and she said, "maybe I should get a new loofah," and I thought of that dick. That pissed me off big time. There's a little place in my 'hood called Mr. Falafel, and whenever I walk past it, I think of that douche. That also pisses me off. And when I see a pile of dog shit on the sidewalk, I think of him. And that pisses me off too.

His latest bit of douchebagery is his revival of the Right's "War On ______" series. A week ago, he let his viewers know that the 'War on Easter' was surging ahead full bore. But now Mr. Falafel says there is no 'War On Easter'. But I'm not gonna let him change his tune. Not gonna let him flip-flop on this thing. I want a war dammit. I need a war. You tossed the first egg my friend, it's time to throw down.

If O'Reilly thinks the War is off, he better let his field generals know. They've been up to some seriously batshit guerilla warfare in the name of Jesus lately. To wit:

The Bush administration, and its reliance on playing the faith card, have brought these folks out of the closet. And yet, the actions of the Bush administration -- war, torture, disinterest in the poor, disregard for the environment -- are about as un-Christian as you can get. Despite that, they've managed to paint themselves as the preachers on the hilltop, here to save us all from the evils of the world. It's total bullshit, but it works.

That's why we see folks like Tom DeLay, whose photo is next to the word 'corruption' in the dictionary, cry that he's a victim of persecution because of his Christianity, not because of his arrogant, unethical, outwardly corrupt power-wielding. It's why DeLay's compatriot in corruption, Jack Ambramoff, surrounds himself with the hyperbolic frontmen of the Religious Right. These are not Men of God; these are men who've appropriated God for there own evil purposes. Most frighteningly, it's why Rove plays the "he's on a misson from God" card when he needs to go to war. Hell, it's happening now with Bush's messianic posturing on Iran.

God save us all. And Happy Easter.

Standing ovation on this one, Jed. What made O'Reilly back off of this batshit crazy bullshit? Could it be that Shep Smith, Fox anchor, even made fun of his ass and Shep has more pull with Amurikans than batshit crazy O'Reilly? Soon, my friend, soon, O'Reilly and Hannity will have to be pulled off of prime time and relegated to talk radio crazy time like Limbaugh.
 
You say "God save us all", well that's what He would like to do. He does ask that you will first humble yourself before him, though.
