Jerry, Revisited

Good morning.

Great bit from mediamatters.org re: the Rev Jerry Falwell.

For those of you who missed it...Jer was the "guest-host" of Crossfire on Thursday. Along with James Carville.

(Quick-side note: Patricia Ireland, the fromer President of NOW, was a guest on the program. Or "The National Organization of Witches," as Falwell calls them. God, is he funny.)

As soon as the program started, Carville and Falwell launched into a quick discussion re: Iraq and W's "decision" to add 12,000 more troops to the, uh, situation. And what this "meant."

Here's the exchange:
CARVILLE: Why are we already there for so long and we need more and more troops if it's going so well?

FALWELL: Well, it's going -- it's going -- I think it is going well. You know, CNN does not always get it right, but it goes pretty well if you watch it on Fox.
Yes, Reverend, the war goes "pretty well" if you watch it on Fox.

Man.

You know what?

Thank the sweet baby Jesus for pro-war Preachers. A breath of fresh air, if you ask me. Because they have the guts to preach "The Truth." None of that peace junk....gummin' up The Word of God.

And another thing.

The Good Lord would've had a better time with the Romans had He been pro-war. Talkin' never got anyone anywhere. We were "learned that" from the President. In the run-up to Operation Desert Freedom Lovers.

More fun on "Crossfire." Patty Ireland (and some crazy Republican woman) joined Carville and Falwell for a discussion re: Henry Waxman's report (read my last entry), abstinence, sex education and misinformation. And Carville went nuts:
CARVILLE: Well, I'll tell you what. Right. Well, you know, one of the things that I would like to see instituted is, no one can preach abstinence unless they practice it themselves. But that's for another discussion here.

One of the things that they teach is, is that you can get pregnant through masturbation. I don't know how to say this, but it's something I have some familiarity with.

(LAUGHTER)

CARVILLE: And I have never gotten pregnant.

(LAUGHTER)

CARVILLE: I have never known anybody to get pregnant through masturbation.

(APPLAUSE)
I have. Lots of people. Half the people I know.

More later...
