    Primer on ‘Dominionism’… must read

    Danger, Will Robinson! Danger!

    If only that naive robot were on hand to issue such timely warnings about ‘Dominionism’, to which Palin is an adherent:

    Theocracy, or stupid as usual?

    I’ll take stupid, thank you.

    This is commentary on a posting by a ‘former’ GOP operative:

    RollingStone Politics: Apocalyptic GOP Is Dragging Us Into a Civil War

    (And this is the article by that former GOP operative: Goodbye to All That: Reflections of a GOP Operative Who Left the Cult)

    Civil war? Well, if he means the covert movement whose motto is: “The South Shall Rise Again!”, then he is correct.

    Flailing about in self-righteous rage,  the GOP/Tea Partiers are operating from the base instincts of fear and resentment. And I mean MIGHTY resentment.

    A perfect autumn day,
    blue, sunny, cool.
    By the roadside–
    dandelions bloom.
