Seems that jumping ship is not the answer. It looks more and more like Gonzales is going to have to answer for his lies to Congress soon.

Even though their antics are a bit over done sometimes, Matt Stone and Trey Parker really do make some good points as far as social commentary in their series. Last night as they roasted the tradition of the Easter Bunny, they scored another hit for common sense and sound morals. How? Well it seems that the whole bunny thing is because Jesus intended for Peter…rabbit to be the pillar of his church. The Popes hat, with its high crown was designed to fit over rabbit ears…. You get the idea.
They skillfully mixed the Da Vinci code with a plot hatched by Bill Donohue, president of the conservative Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights and ended with Jesus neatly slicing Bill in half with a Ninja blade and reinstalling a rabbit as the head of the church. (Funny how Donohue bears a striking resemblance to Karl Rove.) Why a rabbit? Because the rabbit makes no pronouncements as to God’s judgements for mankind. He just sits there silent, watching and lets God speak for Himself.
Heady stuff, and it is the kind of plot that has kept South Park fresh and avoided "jumping the shark".

These guys have been spewing hate for years and now finally someone exposes the truth about them. The BBC did a documentary on this alleged church. The congregation is really almost completely the Phelps family. It's a storefront operation and perhaps the most odd bunch of twisted bigots ever born. Watch and cringe.
Is the Bush administration cornering the market on hypocrisy? Can there be a more duplicitous administration than this one? I seriously doubt it. Veiled in secrecy, they don’t even provide microphones for the press conference in the Rose Garden of the White House yesterday for reporter’s questions. That way Bush can "hear" only those he wants to hear.
Come on folks, this crap has to stop. Does nobody in the press see that they are giving Bush another free pass? Do your research and ask some real questions. Your readers deserve that at least.

Well, funny thing. We used to be able to take the moral high ground on these kinds of issues. We stood firmly against torture, and taking hostages. We abhorred human rights abuses and deplored parading prisoners before TV cameras where they gave forced confessions.
Today, we can’t do that anymore. Why? Because we use torture to get confessions from hostages, or as we like to call the "detainees". We parade them in front of TV cameras to show our determination to win the "War on Terror" and we have become serial human-rights abusers. We have no moral high ground left to stand on.
Now we have taken a page from the playbook of the same nations we once railed against and now we must remain relatively silent or risk exposing our hypocrisy to the world. Well here’s the big news. We already look like hypocrites to the world and he America I grew up with is a pale shell of the country I once knew. We must reclaim our heritage and constitution and cease the kind of immoral behavior the Bush administration is awash in. There is a solution and it is in the hands of every registered voter. We must take back America at the ballot box!

More importantly it again shows that the country now finds George and Laura less than scared figures. When the supermarket tabloids begin attacking you, you know your popularity rating is in the dumpster.
I was going to do an April Fools blog on the subject of their impending divorce, however I suspect it might not be all rumors. Any divorce arrangement would only take place after Bush leaves office in order to keep from further deteriorating his standing with the public and more specifically the Christian Right. Marital woes would not play well with the evangelical voters.
Why is nobody reporting this? Most of the world is in an uproar over it but the US media has remained silent. Maybe because they are afraid that they will be the next target. This government is determined to control all information and bend it to their will. This isn’t about security; it’s about control. Don’t let this happen. Write your congressperson NOW!
