And so it begins...Part Deux

In an earlier post, I observed that we were going to witness a level of scrutiny directed at prospective presidential candidates that was woefully absent when the candidate was a Democrat named Barack Obama. To illustrate the ridiculous obviousness of this phenomenon, I detailed the largely absent MSM when it was learned that one of Obama’s “biggest influences” was none other than an America-hating, black liberation theology professor named Jeremiah Wright. I very easily could have elaborated by including those paragons of ethics and virtue, Bernadine Dohrn and Bill Ayers, but frankly, those two unapologetic cretins rightly warrant all the attention their fellow terrorists deserve – while their acts were barbaric, to discuss them further is to delay their being cast onto the ash heap of history, as fondly remembered as a fart in the wind, if you’ll pardon the momentary crassness.

In any event, in addition to Gov. Rick Perry being some sort of Christianist blindly determined to enslave us all to his repressive, fundamentalist dogma, Salon.com and ThinkProgress (you know, those wonderfully tolerant, intellectually honest journalists) have apparently uncovered damning evidence that Gov. Perry is a confederate sympathizer!!!

A 1998 voting guide published by a leading neo-Confederate group and obtained by Salon not only endorses Perry for lieutenant governor but also describes him as “a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans.” Perry’s office did not respond to a request for comment about the governor’s possible membership in the Sons of Confederate Veterans.

Oh my.

Of course, Salon doesn’t specify just how much time they gave Perry’s office to respond, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it was only slightly less time than it took for them to readjust their carpal tunnel braces.

For the record, Perry has denied this ridiculous assertion. I, for one, am actually looking forward to watching their fables grow in direct proportion to their fear.
