Blog Review: Stonekettle Station

One of my daily "must-read" blogs is Stonekettle Station, run by Jim Wright. He lives in Alaska, surrounded by Teabaggers and other right-wing idiots, true believers who think Palin's the answer to this country's important questions instead of an also-ran punchline. People who think Bachmann is a serious contender who will sweep Obama from the White House and restore racial purity to the nation's leadership. People who know less than nothing about economics, but demand that the government balance its checkbook. People who think Reagan hung the moon, and if we really really really TRY this time, trickle-down will WORK this time, dammit!

He brings righteous anger, contempt, sarcasm, and a desire to see things made right together in his writing. Makes me jealous, really--I'd like to be as thoughtful and articulate, myself.

I learned something important, today, reading comments on his post on how Bachmann's getting financial instructions from her god via the post-hurricane flooding in the northeast:

Well, for the record, I know many hundreds of Christians who are wonderful people and if anybody deserves to go to a heaven and live forever, they do. And on that note, I know a large number of Muslims who are of similar nature.

But it's people like Bachman, Perry, and the smug holier than thou fundamentalists who continue to presume to speak for their miserable angry small minded rat bastard of a God and keep attempting to turn the country into some miserable small minded rat bastard of a theocracy that are getting on my nerves. I will continue to ridicule these people and their silly stupid bullshit as long and as loudly as it takes.

I always wondered if God uses weather to punish the wicked, why is there always so much collateral damage? You would think that an all-powerful being would be able to aim his wrath more selectively. Maybe he'll be unleashing his hate-seeking missile on a gaggle of surprised teabaggers soon!
