Driving Miss Ruth

The young lady on the right, with Chimpy's Vienna Sausage between her fingers, is Ruth Malhotra. The Georgia Tech student is pursuing legal action against the institution so that she may exercise her God-given right to insult homosexuals. Did I mention she's the chairman of the Tech College Republicans?

Taken by itself, Ruth's ridiculous campaign is worthy of a guffaw and a place for her on the Wall of Shame two spaces below Michelle Malkin. But, when you add in an attempt in Tennessee to ban dildos, a bill in Missouri protecting pharmacists who refuse to dispense Plan B/the morning after pill, another Missouri bill attempting to have Jesus declared State God, and, the capper, the proto-simian Bill Napoli's South Dakota abortion ban(and a real tearjerker of a christi-virginal exception), it becomes just the latest example of what I like to call the Massive Fundie Tantrum sweeping this nation.

The Republican Party's "Pay for Play" farce is in shambles, the pretendsident is growing steadily more out of touch, batshit crazy, and unpopular, and the house of cards that the evangelicals built on the backs of Bush and the GOP is cluttering the floor of the church like a Mardi Gras 52-Pickup Orgy.

So, these whackjob fundies are backed into a corner, dinosaurs catching a whiff of asteroid in the air. All of their recent insanity is but the kicking and screaming of the youngster avoiding a bath. I like to think of myself as a firehose.

With her lawsuit, the 22-year-old Malhotra joins a growing campaign to force public schools, state colleges and private workplaces to eliminate policies protecting gays and lesbians from harassment. The religious right aims to overturn a broad range of common tolerance programs: diversity training that promotes acceptance of gays and lesbians, speech codes that ban harsh words against homosexuality, anti-discrimination policies that require college clubs to open their membership to all.

The Rev. Rick Scarborough, a leading evangelical, frames the movement as the civil rights struggle of the 21st century. "Christians," he said, "are going to have to take a stand for the right to be Christian."

THE civil rights struggle of the 21st century. The movement (interprate that anyway you like) to free those poor oppressed evangelicals to spew venom! I don't know about ya'll but I'm writing a check today.....
