Jim Wallis and how the left can be right again.

Jim Wallis, in an open letter to Chuck Colson [Blue Gal is not gonna news Google to find out what that debate was all about] said,

I challenge Democrats on abortion, and I challenge Republicans on war and poverty. In a recent interview with Christianity Today, I said: "It's important for the Democrats to change the way they talk about a moral issue like abortion, to respect pro-life Democrats, to welcome them in the party, and to talk first about how they are going to be committed to really dramatically reducing unwanted pregnancies - not just retaining the legal option of abortion, which Democrats are going to do, because that's part of their plank." But I also said, "My hope is that Republicans can broaden their conversation about moral values beyond just abortion and gay marriage to poverty and the environment and the ethics of war."

I believe deeply that Christians must seriously be concerned about everything that threatens the lives of people created in the image of God. Abortion is important; war and economic justice are also important.

Hellooooo, why are so many of Blue Gal's heroes so long winded? My Cliff's Notes version:


As Blue Gal asks Alabamians under her breath all the time...Think you very much?

Memo to the Democrats

TO: The Democratic Party
FROM: Blue Gal

Hiya Howard! Howzit hangin'? Hey, lissen up from the bluest gal in the Bible Belt. NOTHING will take the wind outta the sails of the religious right faster than a compromise on abortion. Lookee, our president has compromised already:

In an Oval Office interview on Jan. 26, Bush responded to a question as to what steps he planned to take against abortion, saying: “I think the goal ought to be to convince people to value life. But I fully understand our society is divided on the issue and that there will be abortions. That's reality. It seems like to me my job is to try to convince people to make right choices in life, to understand there are alternatives to abortion, like adoption, and I will continue to do so.”

Woo hee. Duzznt look like Dubya's gonna overturn Roe v. Wade. Makes sense, wouldn't wanna be paying for that flight to Norway if Jenna forgits to take her pill.

Oh my goodness gracious. Is Blue Gal sayin [gasp] Hillary is right? er, yep.

Oh, Memo to Hilary:

TO: Hilary Clinton
FROM: Blue Gal

Puh-leeze take a page outta Ted Kennedy's book and realize once and for all:


Stay in the Senate and don't even THINK about national office.

Love, (and give that philandering SOB cutie husband a big wet kiss from)

Why I hate freedom....

The joke goes...

Q: How many Bush Administration officials does it take to screw in a light bulb?

A: None. There is nothing wrong with the light bulb; its conditions are improving every day. Any reports of its lack of incandescence are a delusional spin from the liberal media. That light bulb has served honorably, and anything you say undermines the lighting effect. Why do you hate freedom?

I hate freedom because it was used 20 times in the SOTU address, a code word for "what's good about America." So forget about Abu Garhib, Passaic County NJ, Guantanamo Bay...

I hate freedom because it does not apply to our enemies...

I hate freedom because without applying to all of us, it leaves none of us free...

America needs you, Jimmy Carter. Remember when we had a president who cared about human rights? Remember?
