Surifng the web tonight brought me some comfort that Debrisville is NOT the only place in the world where political Surrealism is being practiced. The pictures at the top of the entry have very little to do with politics but everything to do with Surrealism. Besides reading this blog can be a surreal experience at times; make that much of the time.

Item-1 Surreal Bedfellows: Gerry Adams & Ian Paisley- This is deeply weird. Sinn Fein leader Gerry (I’m Not A Terrorist) Adams plans to nominate firebrand Protestant leader Rev. Ian (I’m Not A Terrorist) Paisley to be Northern Ireland’s First Minister. In the past   Paisley has compared Adams to Satan. He also used to think that the Pope was hiding horns under his beanie. Perhaps Paisley’s change of heart had something to do with recent changes made by  Pope Benedict XVI.

Well Herr Ratzinger is German after all. Rumor has it that both Gerry Adams and Ian Paisley have urged the Pope to use stout ale preferably Guinness instead of lager.

Almost as weird as the Adams-Paisley story is the fact that the pre-papal Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger had a fan club   which has a web page in his honor. You learn some bizarre things when googling…

Item-2 John McCain Kow Tows To Jerry Falwell: Senator John McCain continues to sell his soul to  the religious right. He gave the commencement address at Jerry Falwell’s Liberty College yesterday. I hope that those liberals who have wet themselves about McCain since 2000 will finally understand that he’s a fricking conservative. The confusion was always on their part not on McCain’s. He’s just not a vicious Cheney/Limbaugh/Gingrich style wingnut; instead he’s an unreconstructed Reagan Republican with a Ronnie-like nice guy personality.

McCain wants to be President so badly that he’s stuck his head up Jerry Falwell’s ass. His predecessor as Senator from Arizona Barry Goldwater was the sort of libertarian conservative that McCain was until his ambition trumped his principles. Goldwater HATED Jerry Falwell and once said: “I think every good Christian should kick Falwell in the ass.” If they did so today they’d have to ask McCain to remove his head first…

Item-3 Unconfirmed Rove Indictment Report: Jason Leopold of truthout.org is the only source reporting that Earl Turd Blossom of Rove will be indicted soon. I’m not sure that this is anything more than wishful thinking but it would be most amusing to watch the White House try and spin their way out of this one. It’s surreal to imagine President Beavis without his political brain: it’s tantamount to a lobotomy…
