A bitch caught up on some television viewage this morning (bless you TiVo!!) and …well, the coverage of McCain’s pastor drama made me long to seriously whoop some media-based ass.
For the love of all that should be balanced, why the fuck is Senator McCain’s double trouble case of Evangelicals behaving badly being treated to such gentle, almost soothing, coverage?
Where for art thou all those video montage segments with the creepy fear inspiring Unsolved Mysteries-esque voice-over featuring non-stop loops of Reverend Hagee preaching about Hitler being sent by God and the Holocaust being the will of God (shudder)?
And what happened to using the taped words of Pastor Rod Parsley as a springboard into a discussion of Evangelical theology and whether Evangelical preachers are teaching hatred and fear of all Muslims from the pulpit…or what the impact of Parsley’s ig’nant absolute statements will be…or whether McCain’s reluctance to denounce him immediately has something to do with Parsley being his spiritual advisor...yeah, all that shit?
How about opening up the Today Show with Parsley on tape indicting all Muslim’s as terrorists (mercy) followed a Matt Lauer on the tall stool interview with self identified Evangelicals where they get asked why they remain loyal to a denomination that preaches hate from the pulpit and how American voters could possibly feel comfortable with the Republican nominee after learning that he actively…with passion, dedication and stalker-esque discipline…sought the endorsement of John 'Catholics are bad but Hitler was a servant of God' Hagee and considers Rod 'bring on the Crusades Part II, baby' Parsley a spiritual advisor/moral compass?
Now where did I put my Rod of Merciless Correction?
