in news that should come as a surprise to no one here, Republicans are apparently religious kooks. some 68% of registered Republicans believe that the devil can possess a human soul. frankly i'm surprised the number isn't higher. if i had to guess the number is closer to 99% among Republican elected officials.
i haven't been around here much lately. i've spent a lot of time recently volunteering for the Obama campaign in my local area. hopefully i can spend more time here once this election is over. i hope everyone is well, and regardless of your political affiliation please go vote next Tuesday!
Actually, not I'm surprised. And, they could be right. I mean - after all - look at Akin of Missouri, Muordock of Indiana, Walsh and Shimkus from Illinois, and numerous others. At least Palin had the demons exorcised from her by the witch doctor at her church.
Thanks for volunteering. I commend you for taking the time to help out with the election.
I'm not surprised by the percentage of believers in devil-possessed souls. Since most theists believe we have souls, and that god is the "good" force in the universe, and that we are constantly fighting an internal battle between good and evil, it stands to reason that "dark forces" can take over if we're vulnerable enough to allow it to happen.
right, but keep in mind this isn't about believers, it's about Republicans. i guess anymore they're largely one in the same.
i've seen many of these articles as well. i've even posted a few here for discussion. with the democratic micro targeting strategy, i wouldn't be surprised if we've already been targeted and just don't know it yet. eventually, i hope it would be more direct and overt. we'll see.
You have my admiration and gratitude for volunteering. Very much.
I was going to say something snarky about devilish Repubs but someone already did. Dick Cheney as my vote as being the most satainc, with GWBush as his puppet.
thanks. my achillies are paying the price though. i knocked on nearly 1000 doors over 4 days. it's very hilly in my town as well.
Matthew, you did a great job. Helped get those 20 electoral votes in the correct column. My sincere thanks.
thanks Pat. you can thank the religious right for my involvement. were it not for them i'd have been sitting comfortably on my couch. i got involved b/c they freaked me out, and unfortunately they dominate the Republican Party.
