Good news! Timeless irritants of humanity still alive and well in GOP

Mark Morford on the Maine vote against gay marriage:

In case you forgot: the Bible was very serious about that one bogus line in Leviticus calling people of the same gender getting it on being an abomination against God. Just as it was dead serious about sundry other abominations -- like, say, trimming your beard, sleeping next to your menstruating wife, eating shrimp, or purchasing slaves from too far away. Yay Bible! Always a terrific reference for modern life.

All told, it was a pretty good week for fear, for looking around nervously because you don't really understand what's going on in this gul-dang world, and therefore you should clutch your dying ideology and hang on for dear life.

This is particularly true if you happen to be a Republican, aka the Party of Not in My Backyard, aka the Party of Hey You Kids, Get Off My Lawn, aka the Party of Screw You, Get a Job If You Want Health Care You Lazy Hippie -- if this is you, well, you came away from the week mildly giddy indeed.

After all, aside from bashing gays in Maine, your party is still working like a feral demon to derail genuine health care reform, won't even show up to discuss serious climate change legislation, and many of your fine, macho leaders recently voted against helping women who have been gang-raped by U.S. government contractors.

How proud you must be!

Much more.
