E.W. Jackson on an American flag background
Today in E.W. Jackson news, E.W. Jackson Jacksplains the Democratic Party to a Virginia radio host:
"I believe that the Democrat party has become an anti-God party, I think it’s an anti-life party, I think it’s an anti-family party. And these are all things I think Christians hold to very dearly."
The best Virginia could do. It was Ken Cuccinelli first, and this guy second.

I think we Americans maybe just need to shut up a while about how bad certain governments in other countries are. We're well on our way to some sort of Gilead-Hunger Games mashup ourselves, we've mostly just all been too preoccupied by what's on television to really put much effort into getting there. It's only a matter of time before the Republican Party platform devolves into "we need to forcibly harvest poor people's kidneys because Jesus", though, and E.W. Jackson is just the sort of fan-fiction inspired candidate who could pull a message like that off.

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.
