Dan at Cerulean Sanctum is refreshingly candid about why he is disallusioned with politics. It’s reasonable to be disallusioned, it is at least a decision, and better than ignorance.
I don’t think Christian is a voting block.
There is a religious wing of the Republican Party that would loudly disagree with me. They have in the past, the most vile hateful emails coming to this blog are from this, er,Â voting block.Â
They call themselves ‘value voters.’
I doubt Max Blumenthal will continue toÂ be permitted into these conferences and bring out videoÂ -Â The Value VotersÂ Summit. Â Blumenthal stood back and letÂ leaders speak.
The scroll is a fun touch.

Oral Roberts University has filed it’s papers with the courts, requesting a gag order. Three professors are suing for wrongful dismissal. The attached document to their amended complaint is what everyone is talking about, it’s good fodder for gossip, speculation, innuendo;Â Â and I think for helping the timid come forward and tell it like it is.
There is nothing new under the sun.
Two books came outÂ around 30Â years ago, ‘Ashes to Gold’ (1983)Â by Richard Roberts first wife Patti Roberts Thompson,Â and ‘Give Me that Prime Time Religion’ (1979)Â by a former Oral RobertsÂ producer named Jerry Sholes.Â
It was business as usual againÂ in no time at all.
The court denied the University request today to have the court filings speeded up. ORU is in full damage control mode, but I don’t think this one is going to go away soon.
Another one. This is sad. This WashingtonÂ stateÂ politican has a wife and kids.
But hey, he’s not gay.Â
I didn’t know Ed Sullivan called Robert Goulet the American Baritone from Canada.
Goulet died today. He was 73.
