  •  Ah! But those are the Jehovah's Witnesses, (0+ / 0-)

    and I actually have some respect for them, for no other reason than they literally are willing to die on principle, which is a good deal more than most right-wingers will do. By the way, even though I fall into the habit myself, I try hard to differentiate right-wingers from Republicans or from conservatives, because I work at a relatively conservative academic institution, and I know that many of the folks around me are Republicans. But I also know they would laugh as heartily at global warming critics as they would if someone proposed that Adam and Eve wandered around on the backs of dinosaurs. It IS possible to be Republican and intelligent. It just isn't easy to make it through the meetings.

      running the party. The sort of Rep you're describing would be a centrist Dem these days=-- Ford himself said he had more in common with Dems these days than his own party.  So did Barry Goldwater.  I suspect while theya re like lies till registered Repubs, they may actually vote Dem thes edays.

      And I REALLY hate anyone waking me up at an ungodly hour to  testify to me--I dont care WHAT religion they are or how willing they are to die for it.  They're still fucking annoying, and I reserve the right to  be as rude as I wish to them.  We had a couple of Mormons (or SBC, hard to tell thema part these days; they're all blond, toothey and terminally well-gromed) when I had jsut goten out of the shwoer. I greeted them soaking wet in a not very big bath towel.

      WHen they asked me "Have you found Jesus?" I merely looked at them in a bemused way and answered, " Have you guys lost him again? Tell Mary toput him on a leash."

      The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.
