    Letting Republicans run the government is like putting Atheists in charge of a church. They don't believe in it, don't care if it works - and they take no responsibility for the results.

      I've been trying to come up with an analogy to make clear why putting government in the hands of Republicans is absurd. I think this does it pretty well, if I do say so myself.

      Ironically, it may be a reaction to listening to Rush the other day ranting about people "who think Government is God." Once you realize he's saying Republicans are "Godless", the rest follows.

      This puts what Republicans stand for in a context that can be easily grasped by anyone - and they're the ones who've supplied the framing.

      "No special skill, no standard attitude, no technology, and no organization - no matter how valuable - can safely replace thought itself."

        you I have no desire to run any churches.

        Well... maybe "buddy Jesus" .  I would ask them to love each other and take care of the least of us and stuff... I just don't anticipate any cooperation..  sigh..

        bumper sticker political lines and think that many, if repeated often enough could have the brainless "R's" spinning in circles.  

        Sadly, I've lately lost some of my fighting spirit, after being hippie punched from the fearless Dem leadership (make that Third Way).
