Blessed be the Republicans…

…for they shall know political opposition which immolates itself:

The official website of Washington State Democrats sold magnetic car stickers of the Christian fish symbol and cross emblazoned with the word “hypocrite” on a background of hellish flames. The item was removed about mid-day yesterday after a weblog took note, calling it an example of Democrat Party hostility toward religious believers, especially Christians.

This is an intriguing political strategy, in a quasi-democratic nation where a significant majority consider themselves to be Christians. Democrats like to consider themselves the more intellectual party… and yet they’re so demonstrably and predictably stupid, they’d probably find themselves using a pig as their political symbol in an Islamic country.

Being a demagogue must be tremendously annoying. Sure, it makes it easy to attract a large following. On the other hand, all you end up having to work with are idiots, imbeciles and lunatics.
