Junkies unite

Anyone following the 2008 presidential race will really enjoy this post by the Thoughtful Conservative. It’s a gold mine of sites to watch.


  1. Anything going on with Sprinkel?

  2. Just being careful re: Sprinkel. Still following up on two things.

  3. Ms. Cindy, Robi wy jecie paczki na Grubym Wtorku?

  4. You are a challenge! Who knows what will happen Super Tuesday. We can talk about it when we know for sure.

  5. Oh, I’m sorry! The question was: “Do you eat paczki on “Fat Tuesday”?”. Paczki – Pronounced ‘PUNSCH-ski’ where the ‘u’ is pronounced as in ‘putsch’ is a Polish specialty prepared especially for Fat Tuesday – the day before Ash Wednesday and the start of Lent. It’s a Milwaukee thing. To learn more, see: http://culture.polishsite.us/articles/art169fr.htm

  6. Ah, Fat Tuesday and Super Tuesday coincide. I thought you were asking if I would be “eating my words” on Super Tuesday. I’m not spectacular on the language thing.

    I do remember reading once where the old tradition was to use up all of the butter, etc., in the making of Paczki. I’ve done my best to give up those things. I might indulge in a diet Coke, though. I’ve given those up in the past few months, too.

    I’m not the fun I used to be…

  7. I just watched Huckabee speaking again, this time in Georgia.

    I can’t imagine anyone currently in the race who comes closer to the social conservative shopping list than he does. Certainly not Romney and unfortunately not Paul – though I think Paul is the modern day Goldwater.

    I’m supporting Huckabee! I think he and a well chosen running mate could run rings round Hillary Rodman O’Bama. After all, what real experience does she have aside from cleaning up after Monica?

    Anyone out there have reason why he ought not be the Republican nominee?

  8. Shawn Matson says:

    Yes, because Jesus and Justice shouldn’t share a hotel room. I like them both but they just don’t have the chemistry that Liberty and Justice have.

  9. Jesus and Justice met on the same tree, Shawn, to make Liberty possible. Without Him, neither of other two are possible.

  10. Shawn Matson says:

    I don’t like tangled branches, though.

  11. Good one, Shawn.

    I thought we got over this whole “seperation of Church and State” business a looong time ago. Unfortunately, we haven’t.

    I believe there’s more things our country needs to get accomplished over whether or not the Lord moved into the White House.

  12. You clowns arguing over religion/politics need to get in the time machine and go back to the campaign of JFK so you can re-fight the battle of whether we want the Pope to be running our country.

    The reality is that REAL Christians have the character and ethics that the founding fathers had, and it’s just what we so badly need in our political leaders. The people who are afraid of these kind of leaders need to speak up and defend the kind of values they stand for. A man who goes to church on Sunday and gets a “BJ” in the Oval Office on Monday is NOT a real Christian and is NOT my kind of leader.

    Hitler, Stalin, Mao, etal were the kind of leaders you get when you leave Christian values behind.

  13. Don’t many argue that Hitler was a practicing Christian?

  14. BrkfldDad says:

    I always thought he was a practicing Catholic, but if you hit up Wiki, it’s a much different story.


  15. BrkfldDad says:
  16. Never heard that one before. But if he was, he sure wasn’t ‘practicing’ very hard!

    If you want examples of Christians active in Nazi Germany, look to Dietrich Bonhoeffer. He was martyred trying to get rid of Hitler.

    We’ve somehow ended up in this urinating contest over Christians in public office. While I think the fact that it is an issue is the fault of a bunch of suspect ‘christian coalition’ far right yahoos, please don’t confuse the brand name with the product: not everything that looks chocolate is Exlax!

    Also, while you are busily digging through the pile of non-Christian candidates in which you can have confidence, grab a list of the past presidents and check off all of them who did not claim to be Christian. Even Abe Lincoln eventually became a Christian.

    Really, I could care less who you vote for. It just seems so incongruous to exclude someone from consideration just because he was a Christian preacher.

    On the other hand, if your more comfortable doing so, write-in a Mullah by all means! Then we can experience the love and peace and joy experienced by everyone living in Saudi Arabia!

    Anyone want to invest in a burqa shoppe?

  17. For those among us who are afraid of Presidents claiming to be Christian, see: http://www.adherents.com/adh_presidents.html

    Even the beloved Bill Clinton is a Baptist? Bovine Feces!

    By the way, I’m afraid of the same people of whom most of you are afraid.

    Some of these ducks just can’t understand that America is not meant to be a theocracy – Christian or Mohammedan.

  18. Shawn Matson says:

    I don’t care if a politician is religious, i’d just prefer if they didn’t wear it on their sleeve.

    To say you can’t be religious if you are a politiician is kind of bogus and my words were taken a little bit out of context there.
