How to be more like Satan

If it's Wednesday it must be Morford going off on Secaucus Fats and getting to use Milton to do so.

Indeed, part of the the answer is already encoded in the question. People like Christie are, of course, so locked like sad demons into their stiff little roles they cannot help but toe the party line, delude themselves into believing what is so clearly a violent mischaracterization of love and marriage, even as they sell their own soul for the sake of the vote and the sneering fundamentalist GOP nod. Hey, this is politics. The murdering of one's own humanity for the sake of power and position has been around since man first oozed out of the slime and demanded a campaign contribution.

I get this great visual of an arm sticking up out of the primordial ooze, palm up. Tales From The Repug Crypt.

Strip out the bitter, dualistic Christian mythology, and the deeper lesson is simple enough: Stray from your true self, your calm inner knowing, deny your own heart's quieter, more authentic voice in favor of power, shrill punditry or the ego's sly trickery, and watch yourself fall, decay, slither into lower and lower realms of hate and sadness. Choose a path of fear instead of love, and watch yourself die.

Seems simple, no? Shall we alert the politicians?

No need, Mark. They know full well to whom they sold their souls. They think they can screw the devil outta his due like they screw everybody else. They're in for a surprise.


Raw Story

Republican New Jersey Gov. Christie says that Rick Santorum’s warning that Satan is targeting the U.S. should be a relevant topic in the U.S. presidential race.

Good fucking grief.

On the other hand, if you view the right-wing as Satan personified like I do, he's right for once.

Well, if that's gonna be the case, when will the witch-burnings start?
