Presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty proposed in a recent debate that ”if you can find a good or service on the internet, then the federal government probably doesn’t need to be doing it.”
In his recent book which was obviously written to precede a presidential run, he espouses faith as a virtue. An interview can be read HERE.
Let’s try his test out.

By his logic, the Bible doesn’t belong anywhere in government or politics. And neither does he.
The charlatan little toad managed to pop a brain vessel last Thursday. Normally I wouldn’t be too quick with the schadenfruede but this man has thoroughly invested himself in preying on the credulous. His rapture nonsense soaked in 100 million dollars and caused people to literally “take no care for the morrow” as they abandoned work and life to pursue the preachments. The only thing unfortunate about the incident is that it didn’t kill him and spare society from his insanity and lies. Here’s to broken blood vessels, and may it finally shut him up.

Slate Magazine analyzed the emails of Sarah Palin during her incomplete governorship of Alaska and unearthed a disturbing but not unexpected message:
“God will have to show me what to do on the people’s budget”
While it is terrifying that advice for governance would be solicited to a deity in superstitious fashion, it is sadly commonplace. Those familiar with the Bush administrations, the Reagan administration, and the career of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia know that important decisions are frequently made whilst in the position of kneeling. In the Clinton administration, it’s the staff that were on their knees, but at least they weren’t babbling under their breath for advice on how best to run a democratic nation.

Like this swimsuit or loath it, it doesn’t really matter because you won’t be seeing it on any beaches anytime soon.
Fashion designer Lisa Burke created this one piece swimsuit with the image of the Hindu goddess Lakshmi printed on it.
Outraged Hindu’s, as can be expected of religious extremists didn’t take a measured response to expressing their dislike or hurt at seeing their deity on a swimsuit but instead took to the streets and to burning Australian flags in faux outrage.
Burke yielded to the protestors’ demands, promising the designs would never be produced or sold:
The image of Goddess Lakshmi will not appear on any piece of Lisa Blue swimwear for the new season, with a halt put on all production of the new range and pieces shown on the runway from last week removed/ The use of images of Goddess Lakshmi was not in any way a measure of calculated risk taking, simply it was a desire to celebrate different cultures and share that through our brand.
This range will never be available for sale in any stockists or retail outlets anywhere in the world. We apologise to the Hindu community and take this matter very seriously.
Once again, free speech loses out to the violent rage of a handful of religious extremists.
Jesus Herman Christ was found murdered behind a Denny’s restaurant in suburban Palestine late last Thursday. While it initially appeared that he had died from injuries sustained from a crucifixion, an autopsy report revealed that he had actually died because of the sins of all mankind. The coroner noted that Christ appeared to be a victim of masturbation, perjury, homosexuality, gluttony, rape, other unrelated murders, blasphemy, and disobeying the sabbath among several other listed crimes. The coroner estimated that Christ had been dead for over two thousand years. The police have not pressed charges as of yet, but have over 140 Billion suspects, most of which are no longer alive. Two pieces of wood recovered from the scene were held as evidence. A reward of eternal life is being offered for information leading to the eternal damnation of said sinners.
Jesus spent his life as a carpenter. In his spare time, he enjoyed drinking wine and pissing off Jews. He was survived by his father Yahweh. Services are to be held every goddamned sunday in every church throughout the world for all eternity. Christ was 33 when he died.
