BRANDOLAND: Talking to God...For You!

Here's a great idea:

"Christian Exodus Planned For South Carolina"

Not your regular run-of-the-mill "Christian-Exodus," but an Uber-right theocrat exodus.
Plans to reform our government to more Christian-like principals are in the works and we may feel the effects, right here in the Upstate. That is because South Carolina has been chosen as the place for hundreds, even thousands of Christians to move to, in hopes of impacting the government.

Mormons did it in Utah.
Here, is South Carolina: the chosen location for the Christian Exodus, a non-profit group organizing Christians to move to the Palmetto State to concentrate the number of Christians in one location with the intent to influence how the state governs.
These are folks who want to put God's law before man's law, BTW.

Not sure if they want Jesus' law (love thy neighbor) or the laws in Deuteronomy (do not cook a young goat in its mother's milk).

We'll see.
The Group says they plan on having 2500 Christians moved to South Carolina by September 2006, and will begin several political campaigns at that time. They hope to have a major impact on State government by 2014.
I'm down with this plan...and encourage other groups to do the same.


All Irish folk to...PA? MASS? Which one looks the most like Ireland? We'd lose the beauty of the "west coast" with the landscape in PA, but, damn, there are already tons of Irish folk in PGH and PHL. We could take it over by X-mas.

Then again, we could paint all the towns on the Cape and make 'em look like Dingle.

MASS it is.

All metal fans to...New Mexico.

Yep. Albuquerque has long been the metal capitol of the world. Real metal - not false metal. We could rename the state "Oz" and turn Los Lunas into one giant outdoor metal-venue. Rob Halford for governor. Maiden as the state band. No taxes if you're a metal fan.

Slayer would be our army. That's all we'd need.

"And we'd kick everyone's ass!"

All DORKS - SciFi nerds, comic book dudes, toy collectors - to Washington state. VIDEO GAME COMPANIES, SOFTWARE NERDS AND SCI-FI WRITERS PAY NO TAXES: We'll turn the state into a "Federation," and will trade our intricate knowledge of science and technology with the world.

Our stations will broadcast nothing but "Battlestar," "Buffy" and the original "Star Wars."

Lenoard Nimoy will be our first "emperor."

We'll be on Mars before NASA for sure.

And, we'll build a laser to destroy Vancouver.


Onward Christian soldiers.

Frank Rich weighs in on "Rove-gate" and the Buhsies efforts to hide the real story:

Follow the Uranium

To the Bushies' false claims for war.
This case is about Iraq, not Niger.

The real victims are the American people, not the Wilsons. The real culprit - the big enchilada, to borrow a 1973 John Ehrlichman phrase from the Nixon tapes - is not Mr. Rove but the gang that sent American sons and daughters to war on trumped-up grounds and in so doing diverted finite resources, human and otherwise, from fighting the terrorists who attacked us on 9/11. That's why the stakes are so high: this scandal is about the unmasking of an ill-conceived war, not the unmasking of a C.I.A. operative who posed for Vanity Fair.


Once we were locked into the war, and no W.M.D.'s could be found, the original plot line was dropped with an alacrity that recalled the "Never mind!" with which Gilda Radner's Emily Litella used to end her misinformed Weekend Update commentaries on "Saturday Night Live."

The administration began its dog-ate-my-homework cover-up, asserting that the various warning signs about the uranium claims were lost "in the bowels" of the bureaucracy or that it was all the C.I.A.'s fault or that it didn't matter anyway, because there were new, RETROACTIVE RATIONALES TO JUSTIFY THE WAR.
Saddam was a bad-guy, the Iraqi people want to be liberated, we need to bring stability to the region, our buddies in the M-I complex needed another opportunity to get filthy rich, yada yada.
But the administration knows how guilty it is. That's why it has so quickly trashed any insider who contradicts its story line about how we got to Iraq, starting with the former Treasury secretary Paul O'Neill and the former counterterrorism czar Richard Clarke.

Next to White House courtiers of their rank, Mr. Wilson is at most a Rosencrantz or Guildenstern. The brief against the administration's drumbeat for war would be just as damning if he'd never gone to Africa.

But by overreacting in panic to his single Op-Ed piece of two years ago, the White House has opened a Pandora's box it can't slam shut. Seasoned audiences of presidential scandal know that there's only one certainty ahead: the timing of a Karl Rove resignation.

As always in this genre, the knight takes the fall at exactly that moment when it's essential to protect the king.
We'll see.

More later.

WHOA - Saddam Hussein has just been charged with killing 140 men! Just now!

Your new TOP STORY!

Time to re-talk about what a bad guy he was!

"Rove who?"
