Seriously...you would think that the GOP would have realized by now that pandering to the religious right will get them no where. When you've run the country into the ground, the majority of people stop caring about whether or not you go the same church as they do, they just want to keep their house.
But, Republicans seem to continue to not get that fact. Case in point, recently, in voicing his opposition to the stimulus package, Sen. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell stated:
"If you started the day Jesus Christ was born and spent $1 million every day
since then, you still wouldn't have spent $1 trillion."
What does that have to do with anything? Nothing. It's just a chance for McConnell to bring up Jesus so hopefully any christian who hears it will assume McConnell is just and righteous in his opposition to the stimulus. You know, instead of him having to offer up a legitimate alternatives (and no...tax cuts don't do it. Just ask any economist).
Well...now the choir to whom McConnell was preaching is joining in his chorus. The American Issues Project is putting this nonsensical attack on the stimulus on tv. Let it not be said that no idea is too stupid to inspire in this country.
