Hoist. Petard. Dumbass motherfucker.

[Greetings, Pharynguloids. Pay no attention to the colourful language -- I just say the things PZ only wishes he could get away with. That's my excuse, and I'm sticking to it, Goddammit. Whoops ...]

Oh, man ... this is too delightful for words. First, there's the Mittster (all subsequent emphasis added)

Let me, uh, let me offer just a thought. And that is, uh, one of the great things about this great land, is we have people of different faiths and different persuasions. And uh, I'm convinced that the nation, that the nation does need, the nation does need to have people of different faiths but we need to have a person of faith lead the country.

And the absolutely delicious blowback:

Romney's Mormon faith, which has been a central topic of discussion here in recent days, is yet again playing a prominent role. A flyer being distributed by the U.S. Christians for Truth asks, "Would Jesus Christ vote for Mitt Romney?" It urges attendees to "join us to spread the truth about Mitt Romney and save America from his Mormon cult values."

Followed by the frantic and thoroughly hypocritical defense:

Matt Rhoades, communications director for Romney, condemned the flyer. "Attacks of religious bigotry have absolutely no place in politics today. It's unfortunate other camps stoop to such levels." (It's not clear, however, that the group has ANY affiliation to any other GOP campaign.)

How shall I put this delicately? Fuck you, Mr. Rhoades, you worthless piece of shit. Explicitly claiming that the U.S. must be led by a person of faith is pure religious bigotry and nothing but. As ye sow, so shall ye fucking reap. Deal with it, you jackass.

: And, once again for all you Pharynguloids, while you in the Excited States of America have the world-famous Discovery Institute, we up here have ... several idiots and their badly-designed web page.

You win again.

I just love it when the Evangelicals go after the Mormons.

And the mormons go after the evangelicals, effectively canceling each other out.

These twisted minds need to be set straight as to which cult is number one with the cosmic muffin.
How can we insert Kathy Shaidle into the mix to lay down the law and put these pretenders in their place?

The guy with the ruby slippers said Catholicism is it, end of story, no others need apply.
It melds nicely with that peculiar American obsession of needing to be constantly reassured they're number one.
Who else to defend the Holy Roman Empire/New World Branch than the Holy Roman Umpire herself?

She'd call 'em as she sees 'em;

Rudy, you've fouled out, foul lies, foul 9/11 evoking and you look like a foul slut in drag.

Mitt, you keep swinging but you keep missing.
Five sons and not even one enlisted, a con artist charged with a 23-count indictment to do your fund raising and cruelty to roof mounted animals.
You're outta there.

Law 'n Order Freddy, the uncandidate, your stealth campaign doesn't even make it to first base.
You just look like you're acting the part, the gravitas, the dignified bearing.
I'm a serious poser and this is serious role.
The scenery can't take all that chomping and that trophy wife you show up with sometimes, gack.
Get her to cover those puppies up.
She always looks like she just left a Big 'Uns centerfold reunion, yeah, but May 1972 was a little while ago and gravity can be a bitch.
Go back and keep the pine warm.

Three up, three down.

First up for the Dems, that Kerry fella.
What's this, he's RC, baptized with holy water, confirmed, takes communion, even circumcised?
What to do Kathy, what to do?
Obviously you must give him a walk and let him steal the the rest, after all, he's in the club.

Hey, maybe this mixing of religion and government isn't too hot an idea after all.

Good commentary for all the non-believers at:

The idea of America needing "a person of faith" (i.e., a delusional person) for the presidency is too absurd to comprehend. Mitt makes such a ridiculous assertion and then gets upset when his own delusion is examined. He can't have it both ways.

I'm sincerely hoping for a president who is oriented to reality. We've seen the damage a delusional leader can inflict, and I hope my fellow Americans will agree that this is not a mistake to repeat.

Yeah... cuz people of faith have done SUCH a good fucking job so far.

The bottom line is that all the powerful money making churchly types are afraid that under an athiest they'd lose the billions of tax freed dollars they scam from their flocks every year...and the 'white male Christian' power structure BillO holds so highly would be disrupted.

It's all bullshit of course.
