Celebrating our differences, celebrating our similarities.
I think it was wrong of Atrios to say that Congressman Patrick McHenry (R-NC):
“…spent the last decade kidnapping babies, raping them, killing them, and piling them up in his basement shrine to Ronald Reagan.
No evidence at all that he hasn’t done this.”
It is this kind of ugly smear of a candidate that turns people off from participating in our democratic system. This kind of innuendo is, quite frankly, deplorable. What Atrios failed to point out is that McHenry is a unmarried white Republican male who was raised as a Roman Catholic and eventually went on to become a Congressman from a populous southern state.
Much like Mark Foley.
By the way, these similarities end when talking about Lindsey Graham.
He’s a Baptist…
