The Annointing of the SUVs

(from Dan Savage, SLOG.com)

Pentecostal Bishop Charles H. Ellis III, who shared the sanctuary’s wide altar with three gleaming sport utility vehicles, closed his sermon by leading the choir and congregants in a boisterous rendition of the gospel singer Myrna Summers’s “We’re Gonna Make It” as hundreds of worshipers who work in the automotive industry—union assemblers, executives, car salesmen—gathered six deep around the altar to have their foreheads anointed with consecrated oil.

While Congress debated aid to the foundering Detroit automakers Sunday, many here whose future hinges on the decision turned to prayer.

Well, it's better than hundreds of autoworkers storming the CEOS' homes in the suburbs of Detroit. But if Hummers are wiped away from the roads because of people seeking cheaper, smaller, more maneuverable, less gas-guzzling or (heaven forbid) alternative fuel cars and the "concept men" run out of ,well, concepts... we'll see Detroit turn into a - what else? - museum of antique cars.

Bill O'Reilly Entertains Again: Going To War Against - Himself!

Merry Holidays!
Happy Christmas!
Merry Happy!

Oh, F**k! Just Have A Good One!

Taking potshots at Bill O'Reilly is, well, fun. There, I'll admit it! He's hypocritical, dogmatic and incredibly stupid. O.K., there I go again, having fun at someone else's expense. He, he! But I just can't help it. It's so damn...easy!

It's as natural as falling off a log!
He tries to act "fair and balanced" (like FOX News, uh huh!), but he comes across as unfair and slightly unbalanced. As we've stated many times, there are two types of Christofascists: the Elmer Gantrys and the Elmer Fudds. O'Reilly has not yet evolved from Fudd to Gantry. And it looks like he never will:

What? Bill O'Reilly Doesn't Drink His Own Kool-Aid?
(Reported by Melanie - November 18, 2008)
Bill O'Reilly's annual frontal assault on the (ahem) legions of bomb-throwing liberals out there who are waging a "war on Christmas" is just around the corner. But looky here: an alert reader found this on the gas bag's own website: "Bill's holiday reading list."
Now check out Bill O'Reilly's

“Great American Holiday Quiz” up on the Parade Magazine website:

That's the Great American HOLIDAY Quiz. I took the quiz and found out more about Hanukkah than Christmas. O'Reilly doesn't seem to get the fact that "Happy Holidays" was phrased so as not to offend Jews. It was, in fact, phrased to INCLUDE Jews, but Bill's covert anti-Semitism results in over-compensation.

His quiz also socks it to the ACLU. Apparently, knowing about nativity scenes in public places is as important as who was the first person to sing Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer (Gene Autry).

See what I mean? It's soooo easy to poke fun at this hypocrite!

Just a thought.
