Literary pretentions

The New Yorker details the curious and scandalous pre-history of "Scooter." Is this really who the xian right thinks it put in charge of the country? I mean, what is it with these conservative ultras and porn novels. And such awful writing. First Lynne Cheney and now Scooter.

And a little news of the weird from Texas: Waco pastor Kyle Lake killed, electrocuted in baptism accident
WACO, Texas (ABP) -- Kyle Lake, pastor of the innovative University Baptist Church in Waco, Texas, was killed by electrocution Oct. 30 while performing a baptism during a worship service. Lake, whose age was not immediately known, had been pastor of the church for more than four years.

The congregation, made up mostly of Baylor University students, is best known as the home church of worship leader and songwriter David Crowder. Lake and a baptismal candidate reportedly were in the baptistry when the accident occurred, reportedly caused by a microphone. Lake was taken to a nearby hospital by paramedics. He was pronounced dead at 11:30 a.m., according to the church's website.

The baptismal candidate reportedly was not seriously injured...The Waco congregation, which attracts about 600 worshipers each week, is known not only for Crowder's music but for its emphasis on the arts and multimedia worship. A special service for prayer and counseling of UBC members was held at nearby First Baptist Church in Waco Sunday night, Oct. 30.

I was forced to listen to Err, I mean Air America at work today and Randy Rhodes (not the former Black Sabbath band member I assume) covered this extensively. Normally I loathe talk radio but this was fucking hillarious. There was much on air gagging and Bill O'Rielly reading his own smut book on tape, as well as quotes from Cheney's, William Saffire's, and Bill Buckley's ribald tomes. Kind of made me happy for awhile. Also reminded me that fundamental also means from the ass.
Keep up the good blahgggggg!
