More like "impredatory"...
Learned a new word today.


As in "imprecatory prayers".

As in, groups of Christians pushing to get McCain elected, intending to then perform "imprecatory prayers" about him (i.e. pray for his "salvation and speedy death"), so God will kill him and we can have President Palin.


I mean, just... wow...

praying for speedy death

There is no end to what they'll do to put a right wing pitbull into the Whitehouse. No matter what they say, this is all about the future of the supreme court.

Re: praying for speedy death

Exactly so. Hell, we're already past the breaking point. With Roberts and Alito, Bush has already established a 5-4 batshit-insane right-wing majority.

With the next oldest Justices being "liberals" (the definition of which now being "anyone to the left of Attila the Hun"), the BEST we can hope for is to replace like with like, and not drift any FURTHER into madness.

Eight years ago, when McCain was still trying to be a "reasonable Republican" (a truly threatened species) -- I wouldn't have been quite so scared.

But NOW... after eight years of sucking up to Bush, Cheney and Rove every chance he got... McCain is quite capable of nominating more Scalias. And as you suggest, if PALIN actually became pres... well, I can't imagine what would be WORSE than another Scalia, but I have no doubt she'd find it.

The right wing have finally figured out that no matter HOW much evil they do, as long as we have a functional Supreme Court, it can be corrected. But pervert the Supreme Court, and literally anything is possible.

As we are already seeing... :(

Oh crap.

That is depressing.

Why hasn't your wife posted in a while? I miss her.
