Paul Begala thinks Pat Robertson and James Dobson are bad news for Reps because of the way Republican members of the House, Senate and President Bush have tripped over themselves to seek the approval of these two men. Robertson believes that women get breast cancer because they have abortions, and that we were attacked on 9/11 because we are too tolerant of gays. Dobson beleives that childrens cartoons send sublimal messages to convert children to a lifestyle of homosexuality and that embroyonic stem cell research is the equivelent of Nazi human experimentation. If all these elected Republican officals are tripping over themselves to support these two men, they and every Republican probably endorse all their talking points and the majority of Americans know that Dobson and Robertson are all full of s***.
(P.S. Begala never said these things. This is my way of showing that if you want to string together a set of thoughts and then relate them together for a partisan base, it's much easier to point out that people with power are in bed with exremists. I have no clue what Sheehan thinks, or know whether I agree with her policy proposals if she's actually made them but I fully support the right of a woman who has suffered tremendously to meet Bish and protest the war. I'm also a bit shocked to find that the people on the right get no bigger enjoyment than trying to beat the crap out of this woman.)
