Surfing on the wave of the apocalypse

While waiting for defective North Korean missiles to come raining down on us, I used the time to do a little surfing and found a few prime examples of the republican zeitgiest

First we have the Prairie Muffin Manifesto on how to become the Church Lady version of a Stepford Wife. Some highlights:

"3) Prairie Muffins are aware that God is in control of their ability to conceive and bear children, and they are content to allow Him to bless them as He chooses in this area."

"17) Prairie Muffins place their husbands' needs and desires above other obligations, arranging their schedules and responsibilities so that they do not neglect the one who provides for and protects them and their children."

"18) Prairie Muffins are fiercely submissive to God and to their husbands."

"19) Prairie Muffins appreciate godly role models, such as Anne Bradstreet, Elizabeth Prentiss and Elisabeth Elliot. They do not idolize Laura Ingalls Wilder (Little House on the Prairie) or Louisa May Alcott (Little Women); while they may enjoy aspects of home life presented in their books, PMs understand that the latent humanism and feminism in these stories and in the lives of these women is not worthy of emulation."

"Fiercely submissive" Whisky-Tango-Foxtrot? is that like jumbo shrimp or Progressive Conservative? If it weren't for the wholly crappy page design and the super-earnest tone, I'd suspect the `Prairie Muffin Manifesto' was a parody site. Check it out for yourself.

Next we have this boot-polishing, racist, cop fetishist who seems to have a beef with anyone from New Orleans
When will the good people of this country stand up and be heard, and tell the Katrina parasites from Louisiana to go home? Mr. Nagin, you owe the rest of the country more than you can ever repay. You’ve got what you wanted, a subservient welfare culture, and you had them all bussed back to vote your dumbass back into office. Now, why don’t you send those busses back to where your voters now live, and make them come back home? You and your state’s Democratic policies are what have fostered this welfare, “gimme” mentality, and the rest of us are paying a very dear price for it.

A possible new candidate for King of the Dumbasses - Sen. Ted Stevens, explains the internet:

I just the other day got, an internet was sent by my staff at 10 o'clock in the morning on Friday and I just got it yesterday. Why?

Because it got tangled up with all these things going on the internet commercially. So you want to talk about the consumer? Let's talk about you and me. We use this internet to communicate and we aren't using it for commercial purposes

You go girl!
Heather Mallick bitch-slaps (no pun intended) REAL women into a quivering mess over their decidedly anti-equality (what the "ladies" would call counter-feminist) agenda. Hit'em with the chair Heather!

Groups like this that formed back the last neocon heyday of the Mulroney-Reagan-Thatcher years are now rearing their ugly little heads again, now that Harper is playing to them, first to win power and now in pursuit of a majority. Mulroney famously said "give us five years and you won't recognize this country." We (and by we I mean all you morons who voted for the Chin-that-walked-like-a-man, I sure as hell didn't vote for him. I campaigned against him in high school.) gave him nearly twice that and some things still won't ever be the same. It took a dozen years just to undo the worst of the damage and we still have the GST, NAFTA and western separatism. At least Martin balanced the budget.
