What I'm thankful for right now.
November 28, 2013 - Harry Eagar
I'm thankful we are not being governed by lying bigots who use their reputations to stir religious strife in our country.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: So, 5 former ambassadors have excoriated the Obama administration for its "anti-Catholic" embassy closure, although no such thing is happening.
We're not talking unemployable, antisocial nerds in their moms' basements here, we're talking prominenti of the Republican Party. Now, except for the first one (appointed by FDR), our ministers to the Vatican have not been the brightest bulbs in either party. It's a post to reward rich guys where they cannot do much harm.On the other hand, you don't get the Vastican portfolio by being an outsider.
This stupid little story -- a 9 hours' wonder, not even 9 days' -- is, however, one of the most important political events of the year, because it presents, in irrefutable if unplanned form, proof that today's Republican Party has abandoned any pretense of working within our politcal system and has gone over to purely fascist (specifically, purely Action Francaise, the original fascists) strategies.
