Um, Actually, I Coined That Word First!

Apparently one of the wounded Rethugs thinks they own a word I actually coined right there at WTW...

A day after the Democratic sweep of the midterm elections, Woodbury County Republican Chairman Steve Salem had harsh words for his own party, lambasting the influence of the conservative Christian right wing.

Salem said he coined a new phase: "You've heard of IslamaFascists -- I think we now have Christian fascists. What is the definition of a fascist? Not only do they want to beat you, but they want to destroy you in the process."

That from The Sioux City paper. Actually, my term was "Christofascist", meaning a merger between the forces of the American RightWing Taliban Fundie Wackos and Wall Street, but I'm being picky, obviously.

But, he is darned close on his choice of thoughts: The Fundies blew it. What worked to get them King George may have got them into power, but it also was their own petard as well, as the rest of the nation looks at them as homophobic racist bozos, which, oh, golly, they are. Ain't that a shocker?

Of course, the Rethuglicans are in the first phases of mourning their loss, this is the anger phase talking. They're pointing fingers. So far, none pointing to Tom Delay, Karl Rove, King George, Iraq, global warming, the usual suspects.

But, I saw that little truth a long time ago, I saw the rise of the influence of the bible-thumping fundanazi's long ago on the horizon, knowing damned well that when then-candidate Chimpy told the media that Jesus was his favorite thinker, oh, hell, I smelled the smoke then.

The gash in the hull of the Rethug's momentum then came down to the Terry Schiavo mess. America got a first-hand look at how lunatic these asswipes are, how they think, how they react, and what they have in mind for this nation. I felt America reel and collectively hold our stomachs for fear of vomiting.

So, did the fundies ruin the ballgame?

If the Rethugs want to win again? I'd lose those idiots immediately, but so far, according to some pollsters, they're sticking it out. Lovely. That means a bigger win in 2008. And why not? Who likes letting the insane run stuff?
