I just finished watching an HBO documentary by Alexandra Pelosi, titled ... uhh, it's up top and I'm too lazy to type it again. Anyways here's a link:

and here are some YouTube videos:


I know that the people she's picked out are the most ignorant, most angry, and the craziest, but she found a lot of them -- and they scare the shit out of me! This misguided fusion of religion and state is a dangerous ideology, one that starts wars and propagates ignorance. Obama is a muslim? Obama is the anti-Christ? Obama's rise to power mirrors Hitler's? Are you kidding me!?

It's unbelievable that you can walk into a state like Mississippi or Alabama and find entire communities that share this view. There were enough of these Fox news watching, bible-thumping, gun-toting maniacs to elect Dubya Bush for a second term. They spend their summers visiting the Creation Museum.

I'm scared.
