Chupacabra Report

-News that gets my goat..

-Columnist Froma Harrop surprised me today, suggesting that disaffected pro-choice women could do worse than supporting John McCain because “While he has positioned himself as “pro-life” during this campaign, his statements over the years have shown considerable latitude.”

It is just such “latitude” that has made it impossible for me to entertain voting for Senator McCain.

To win the Republican nomination, he has found it expedient to flip on Jerry Falwell, Grover Norquist and the Wyly brothers. He has reversed his position on torture, the inheritance tax, the Bush tax cuts, ethanol, gay marriage, the confederate flag, and the Martin Luther King holiday.

Cynical weasel or dithering dust brain, he’s lost me.

-Police are now guarding the house of state District Judge Barbara Walthers after authorities in Arizona and Utah warned of danger from “enforcers” from the FLDS polygamist sect.

Salt Lake City attorney Rod Parker, mouthpiece for the FLDS cult replied:

"Have they ever seen an act of intimidation or violence against law enforcement from the FLDS community at all, ever?" he told the newspaper. "Before they start spreading those kinds of rumors, they ought to be able to ID an example of them ever doing that in the past."

Well, as a matter of fact, polygamist cult leader Ervil Lebaron had about 25 people killed. On June 27th 1988 they killed four people across the state, one of them an eight year old girl who witnessed her father’s killing.

I’m guessing they didn’t play up that angle on HBO’s “Big Love.”
