God’s Own Party


While I’m putting the finishing touches on my Libby article(s), thought everyone ought to take a peek at the op-ed that caught my eyes this morning.  "How the GOP Became God’s Own Party" by Kevin Phillips (in today’s WaPo).  I would imagine this is going to be a topic of conversation for a while among a lot of political circles, and I thought everyone ought to take a peek at this while it was fresh.

I’ll put up the first Libby installment as soon as I finish it, gang. 

(I found this hilarious cartoon in the comments of MyDD — it’s clearly a Horsey, but I haven’t been able to source it back to the original link.  If anyone can find the original, I’d be much obliged — I don’t use cartoons very often, and when I do, I want to give the original as much credit and traffic as I can.  This one is a particularly fine example of political satire via artwork.)

UPDATE:  Huge thanks to reader OrangeJumpsuit for finding the original of the cartoon for me.   And equal thanks to dave for being second past the post in finding it.  Google kudos to you both.
