And by 'Democrat,' I mean LIBERAL.
Those of you blessed to live outside of this Christian Taliban region have no idea:
[Alabama's] Democratic leaders revealed a "Covenant for the Future" on Tuesday with issues they plan to introduce during the 2007 legislative session, but critics said many of the proposals, such as banning PAC-to-PAC transfers, have been killed by Democrats in past sessions.
Democrats in Alabama have killed plenty of anti-PAC legislation in the past. It's such a dilemma in politics between appearing pro-reform and actually reforming.
In addition to banning transfers between political action committees, the covenant also includes
...passing an amendment saying life begins at conception,
...requiring public schools to offer Bible literacy curriculum, [and]
...passage of the Alabama Border Protection Act."
Oh. I almost forgot the tax cuts and one-man one-woman marriage stuff.
I am not making this up. Alabama Democrats, shorter version: no abortion, pro-Bible, anti-Hispanic, anti-gay.
"House Minority leader Rep. Mike Hubbard, R-Auburn, issued a scathing response to the Democratic initiative Tuesday, calling it the "worst case of political plagiarism in Alabama history."
Waah! They're trying to steal our platform! Mark this date down, folks. For once, Blue Gal agrees with a Republican.
I love what Loretta Nall had to say about that "Border Protection Act":
"Alabama doesn't have a border with a foreign country. Maybe we should pass a bill that says our lawmakers have to pass a geography course before they can serve."
Too late, Loretta. Alabamians are gonna be way too busy with their BIBLE curriculum. Jesu Christi, make sure the unaborted kids of all those illegals you deport get to know their Ten Commandments! [major props to Nall for this whole story, btw]
I want an eleventh commandment. If thou art a Democrat, thou shalt not be a Republican. How hard can that be?
"Uh, could you repeat the question?"
