IN THEIR OWN WORDS

We have decided to make this an ongoing feature of our blog. They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Sometimes just allowing all the various nefarious characters on the radical right, from the Prez on down, to speak their own words is worth more than all the cleverly worded essays we could dream up. So we will be combing the news and keeping our ears to the ground. Holy cow!--there's a lot to choose from!

Here's a few didies from the April issue of The Progressive:

"Press passes can't be that hard to come by if the White House allows that old Arab Helen Thomas to sit within yards of the President." --Ann Coulter writing in a February 23 column. (Thomas has been reporting on the Presidency for forty-five years.)

"Syria is the problem. Syria is where those weapons of mass destruction are, in my view. You know, I can fly an F-15, put two nukes on 'em, and I'll make one pass. We won't have to worry about Syria anymore." --Republican Representative Sam Johnson of Texas, speaking to a crowd at Suncreek United Methodist Church in Allen, Texas. (Gimme that ol' time religion!)

From the March 28th issue of The Nation:

"The death penalty is no big deal to practicing Christians who believe in an afterlife." --Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
