Get Out The Hate

The G.O.P. has kicked off its national campaign for the '06 elections with a get-out-the-hate rally at the White House. Given his miserable failures, both foreign and domestic, it's not surprising that Bush is attacking marriage equality in a desparate effort to prevent Democratic control of Congress.

The funny part is the rabid religious right playing its own anticipation game, setting up Bush to take the fall in the fall:

"I'm going to go and hear what he says, but we already know it is a ruse," said Joe Glover, president of the Family Policy Network, which opposes gay marriage. "We're not buying it. We're going to go and watch the dog-and-pony show, [but] it's too little, too late."

See, if the Democrats prevail in the fall, it's not that the electorate rejected hate, it's that they rejected Bush for not hating enough. That'll keep the checks coming in to the Family Policy Network and the myth of the moral majority on life support.

p.s. to Joe: The dog-and-pony show is over at Senator Santorum's office, 511 Dirksen Senate Office Building.
