Leonardo"s Notebook by Mattheus Mei

I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.

File this under 'WTF?!'

Pat Robertson, one of the paragons of the Religious Right and main proponents of Christianism is critisising Rush Limbaugh for hoping the President fails.

Why? It's all a matter of - in the words of St. Izzy - the idolatry of patriotism, also known as American Exceptionalism. This is a bizare form of ideological canibalism.

The Republican long night of the soul continues....

I like that phrase "ideological cannibalism," Matt. Describes very well what's going on with these groups, as members turns on member.

I suspect we'll be seeing a lot more of this. When groups with grand old pretensions suddenly collapse in on themselves and lose power, they tend to turn on their own members, in an act of final ideological cannibalism. Can't happen soon enough, for me!
