The kind of campaign site that works for me
Fellow Tar Heel blogger Scrutiny Hooligans pointed me to a fitting Charles Taylor for Congress (a.k.a. taylorsucks.org) parody web site. It’s put up by “concerned citizens of western North Carolina” who want his Rethug ass out of there.
An eight-term Congressman from NC-11 and House Appropriations subcommittee Chairman, Taylor is one of Jack Abramoff’s boyz, and he’s not apologizing for it, even as other pols are scurrying away from Abramoff to give back or give their dirty money to charity.
Congressman Charles Taylor of Brevard said he will not give back contributions he received from former Washington lobbyist and now convicted felon Jack Abramoff and his wife.
…About returning the money, he said, “I think members are giving back $150,000 and $95,000. I didn’t have that kind of contribution from Mr. Abramoff. I didn’t ever have any real contact with him. But the $2,750 that he and his wife contributed over a period of six years has been spent, so I won’t be giving it back.”
Taylor’s record is rife with corruption, cronyism and wingnuttery. Some of his key positions:
* Voted YES on Constitutional Amendment banning same-sex marriage.
* Voted YES on protecting the Pledge of Allegiance.
* Voted YES on constitutional amendment prohibiting flag desecration.
* Voted YES on Constitutional amendment prohibiting Flag Desecration.
* Voted YES on banning gay adoptions in DC.
* Voted YES on bankruptcy bill
* Voted YES on allowing school prayer during the War on Terror.
* Voted YES on deauthorizing “critical habitat” for endangered species.
* Voted YES on denying non-emergency treatment for lack of Medicare co-pay
* Voted YES on limiting medical malpractice lawsuits to $250,000 damages.

It goes on and on…
In my recent post, Fundamentalist hatefest held in Asheville, fringe loon Dr. J. Wendell Runion, organizer of the homo-hate rally, touted that he is “an advisor on church and religious matters since 1990” to Taylor.
Boys, I’ve often said that I support Christian businessmen trying to be Christian in their work lives as well as in their personal lives, and I meant it. If I win the election, there is a good chance that you will grow up to be Christian businessmen.
When you are running your very own Christian lobbying firm, you should ask yourself one question: what would Jesus do? The answer to that question is an easy one. Jesus would fire all of the Sodomites.
To help you prepare for your futures as good Christian soldiers, I’ve prepared a little puzzle to help you on your way.
Girls, since you might be working as Christian secretaries while waiting to snare good husbands, you should learn to spot Sodomites as well, to save your bosses the time and energy of interviewing inappropriate job applicants. It will also come in handy in your real lives by helping you choose the right hairdressers or interior designers.
Take a look at the picture below and prayerfully pick out the Sodomites to whom you would appropriately give pink slips.
Go to the site to see the answer.
By the way, in order to maximize the Googlebombing of Taylor, the organizers of the “Charles Taylor for Congress” site have announced that whoever links it the most between Friday, March 24 and Friday, March 31 will get a free pizza or $20, lol.
