I'm here to evaluate your Church's patriotism.

Wow.

caryabend found this and put it on his LJ. Wanted to put my comment here too.



The Bush campaign is asking for volunteers to "serve as a coordinator in (their) place of worship."

That'll be a fun Sunday:

"I'm here to serve as Bush Campaign coordinator in your place of worship."

Why would Bush want reps on the ground in churches?
What message are they sending?
What information are they collecting?
What is the relationship between faith-based initiative money and the role and location of these reps?
When do I get to send a rep from my church to coordinate activities at the White House?

Democracies get what they deserve.
California deserves Arnold Schwarzenegger.
America deserves George W. Bush, because we're close-minded, self-righteous assholes.

But tomorrow is another day.
