It seems very strange indeed that even the radical Christian right would want Don Wildmon on any committee to examine the beliefs of Republican presidential candidates. Aren't Republicans also the party of Big Business? The GOP was better known as "white country club" before they added "white Christians." After an unsuccessful nine year campaign to bring to heel or send to hell the Disney Corporation - which employs about 50,000 at Disneyworld alone (many unionized) - Wildmon is now willing to destroy Ford Motor in order to save America's soul. What can Wildmon possibly ask, say, Jeb Bush? "Governor Bush, do you believe - as a convert to the Papist conspiracy - that Earth was created 6000 years ago and that Disneyworld is a sinful stain on the map of Florida?"

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  Why would the Bush family (4.00)
    team up with a nutjob like Wildmon?

    I have no idea. But perhaps the Bushes have learned from the example of their good friends the Al Saud family of Saudi Arabia. There we see a corrupt dynasty that grows ever richer off of oil revenue and gained and maintains its political power through an alliance with a radically puritanical sect of powerful Theocrats.The corrupt dynasty pays lip service to the religious beleivers at the same time they break every rule in the book (the book being the Koran) and stealing everything they can lay their hands on, divvying up the spoils amongst themselves and their toadies and retainers.

    Ah, I'm just running off at the mouth here--I'm sure none of the above has anything to do with the big-money Rethugs and the hypochristians of our country.

    Al Queada is a faith-based initiative.
