Gun Toting Liberal had a pretty good post on the GOP and morality. It concerns allegations that Randy “Duke” Cunningham had a California defense contractor arrange for full service limousine rides. In this case, full service included prostitutes.

Every damned day it seems I look at the latest news, and somebody from the GOP; “God’s party of morality”, is either being indicted, investigated by the FED’s, or hauled off in cuffs to prison. But you know, there is NEVER a shortage of stupid bastards who will point to the neocons who are being hauled to prison and tie it in somehow with Jesus being hung on the Cross. These are the same kooks who believe that dinosaur bones were laid out upon the Earth to test us of our Faith”¦ these clowns never ceases to amaze me.

He’s generally correct, but seems to forget that former Governor (and currently gubernatorial candidate) Don Siegelman is a Democrat. This is most easily forgivable, as GTL’s seems to be supporting Loretta Nall for governor in the very same race. For those of you outside of Alabama, here’s an overview of the allegations on this new trial:

HealthSouth Corp. founder Richard Scrushy paid Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman to gain a political post that would help his company, a prosecutor said in opening arguments in the bribery case against the two men.

“Scrushy had to scramble” to win favor with Mr. Siegelman, the newly elected governor, after backing his opponent in 1998, Assistant U.S. Attorney Louis Franklin told jurors yesterday. “He had to bribe our governor.”

Back to GTL:

On this great day of Faith, let us all please bow our heads, and pray to the Good Lord that these people will someday find out What Jesus Would (actually) DO. And somehow, I just cannot picture Jesus bombing the hell out of Iran just because their leader seems to be a little STRESSED OUT right now”¦

“¦ but that’s just ME.

I propose we start a new “catch phrase”. How about WWJAD? Translation: “What Would Jesus ACTUALLY do”? I like it. And y’all?


I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that Jesus had no problem hanging out with prostitutes, though.

I like tasteful cigars, private property, American whiskey, fast cars, hot women, pre-bailout Jeeps, fine dining, worthwhile literature, low taxes, original music, personal privacy and self-defense rights -- but not necessarily in this order.

  1. i saw a sticker on a car yesterday that had ‘WWJD” on it, except that that the J was part of a graphic that had Jason’s hockey maskI’s much from the Friday the 13th movies. :))))

  2. Long ago, I once ran across an old aphorism: “Justice is what we deserve; mercy is in not getting it.” But it would seem that the quality of mercy has indeed become strained when it comes to these sanctimonious, holier-than-thou hymn singers who, just as the TV preachers of 20 years ago, have been caught with their hands in the Nookie jar. And I need advice from them on how to morally conduct my life? Might as well ring up ol’ Lucifer.

    What this country needs is the same kind of felony disenfranchisement that occurs to regular citizens on drug charges meted out to such people. Permanently bar them from any political office, and not be allowed to step foot within 20 feet of a Fed bulding, and no sweet revolving-door deals with lobbying companies, either. Creeps like that make a mockery of democracy…

  3. As Ghandi once said:

    I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians, they are so unlike your Christ.

    If Christians actually practiced what Jesus preached, this country might not be so bad…

    I would love to see at least one reporter at every news conference ask Bush WWJAD. I mean, he wouldn’t spin his Lord would he?

  4. Morality is like patriotism to a politician. It’s a convenient way to mobilize his allies, cast disparagement upon his foes, and sway the undecided to his cause.

    Unfortunately, because most people are too busy with living their own lives to do the research necessary into a politician and his nonsense, the scoundrels usually get away with it until they get indicted.

    Somehow, I doubt that Jesus would approve of most of what governments do, and would approve even less of the whole lot of false shepherds (Republican and Democrat) that are trying to lead us off of a cliff.

  5. Seems to me that Jesus was an advocate for the libertarian ideal. Not Republican led facism.

  6. I am reading “The Jesus Papers” now. The bible thumpers in office might be surprised to know what Jesus would actually do.

  7. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.

    I do not believe in or advocate the initiation of force as a means of achieving social or political change.

  8. actually, Jesus would be considered an true communist. he did not believe in private property.

  9. Wow… I’m sorry I had missed this until now. Darned Technorati anyways! Thanks so much for the great link and commentary; I truly do appreciate it. Blog ON, and thanks so much again :-)
