Talibangelical Palin: Dobson's Choice

Well, guess what?

The Republican party is now being run by James Dobson.

You remember Dr. Dobson.

James Dobson, the guy who (himself an adult survivor of childhood physical abuse) advocates the whipping of infants with real whips, the belt-beating of one's "beloved" (sic) Dachshund Siggie, and advocates having grown men shower naked with little boys to compare penis sizes so the little boy won't grow up to be homosexual.*

No, I'm not making this up.
I don't have to. I never have to.

So, it seems that war hero POW John McCain, a manly man if ever there was one, was not man enough to stand strong on his choice for Vice-President of the United States. Seems McCain wanted Joe Lieberman or Tom Ridge. But the Talibangelicals, led by James "Dogbeater" Dobson, wouldn't let him.

So McCain caved.

That's not very manly.

The Talibangelicals wouldn't back either Lieberman or Ridge because both of them oppose government-forced maternity. And that's the cutting edge this year, and that's why Mrs. Sarah Palin is Dobson's choice. (Oh, and in case you were wondering, Mrs. Palin's chosen church is scrubbing its website so no one can do a Rev. Wright thing on her and find out about all her Talibangelical views. Um, can you say 'consciousness of guilt'? I can.)

How Talibangelical is Mrs. Palin?


Talibangelical enough to fire the Wasilla town librarian for resisting her efforts to ban books that she, Mrs. Palin, found morally or socially objectionable.

Which behavior happens to be morally and socially objectionable to me.

How about you?

P.S. Is Mrs. Palin a Dominionist? Just askin'.

The original link appears to have been scrubbed, but here's a little clip: -- 'James Dobson even wrote a treatise on how fathers can cure their children of homosexuality, including the following tips: "He can teach him to pound a square wooden peg into a square hole in a pegboard. He can even take his son with him into the shower, where the boy cannot help but notice that Dad has a penis, just like his, only bigger."'

Here's a Dobson newsletter that contains said quote -- not that anyone should read it, mind you... yep, he's still a nut. May the Flying Spaghetti Monster touch him with His noodly appendage.

She's a slightly smarter, female version of Boy George. The slightly smarter part is scary, because she requires less strings to be pulled by the puppet master.

No Blood For Hubris:

It doesn't have to be father's and sons. Lots of full growed reptilicans can shower with other men and notice that they also have bigger penises.

People that like Sarah Palin have shit for brains anyway, but there might be a few of them who wouldn't want Dickhead Dobson to be appointed VP after JohnnyPOW mysteriously dies after being shot by his wife for diddling Sarah. Oh, what am I saying! That's as preposterous as flying from Texas to Alaska after your water breaks!

Funny how manly maleness has become all about caving in to power these days. Maculinity has certainly become a reflected feature, now, and nothing more.
