  •  WTF? (0+ / 0-)

    What's the deal with republicans banging their friends wives and then firing the friends. John Ensign did the same thing and then got caught trying to pay off the dudes family. Family values my ass.

    •  I think maybe it comes from having an image of God (0+ / 0-)

      as this celestial bully who severely punishes anyone who angers "Him".

      They then try to behave like they think the guy at the top of the heap should behave towards those "beneath" them.

    •  They're called "family values" ... (0+ / 0-)

      ... not "friends values"  and they harken back to the days of the warlords and the clans, not in any way connected to a sense of modernity and modern values.

      Nice handle by the way.
