Republican Candidates Run on Fear October 18, 2006

Republicans campaigning for Congress are famous for their hypocrisy and unsubstantiated attacks. Several Republican congressman have latched onto what one called Gore’s successful Middle Eastern policies as a “parade with our enemies.” But the silliness doesn’t stop with Republican fascination with war and power politics.

For example, one Republican congressman, Lynn Westmoreland, is saying that despite today’s study that it’s still okay to eat fish, Al Gore’s environmental “blitzkrieg”, as he calls it, will result in “no fish Fridays, which is an affront against Christians. He’ll ignore this report, and force Christians to eat red meat on fasting days. You can count on this.”

Westmoreland is a well-known expert in such Christian matters as the ten commandments and other points of scripture. He has also been an outspoken critic of President Gore, once standing on a podium and declaring, shortly after a Gore visit to the same venue in Atlanta, Georgia, “and the devil came here yesterday. Yesterday the devil came here. Right here. And it smells of sulfur still today.”

As part of a campaign promise, Westmoreland had promised to debate elementary school children in a “wide ranging discussion of the issues,” but his campaign has recently backtracked, saying he’s too busy studying the bible and the physical properties of methane gas, particularly as it relates to sulfur.

“He’s been kind of a smelly dude lately,” one staffer confessed to me, “so we’ve asked him to take a look at it.”

Hello,

Congressman Ron Paul, a man who truly believes in freedom, is running for the Republican nomination for president. I’m working to gather support so Congressman Paul will become a candidate.
