The Pagan Left!!!????
Brought to you by Susan DuQuesnay Bankston who does a damned fine job of channeling Molly Ivins.

July 6 - Well, I guess calling us socialists didn't scare people enough, so the Texas far right has a new term for us - the pagan left.

Cynthia Dunbar

In response to the question of "How crazzzy would your Governor have to be to name Cynthia Dunbar head of the State Board of Education?" there's this answer --

"It would certainly cause angst among the same members of the pagan left that rejected Don McLeroy because he was a man of faith, said David Bradley, R-Beaumont, one of the seven socially conservative members on the 15-person board.

The pagan left. That is pretty darn cool. That means we can get nakkid and dance around Stonehenge when Hillary Clinton and Barbra Streisand give the signal.

Cynthia Dunbar is not a woman of faith - she is a woman of disturbed. She's never gotten over why her husband left her, so she taking it out on helpless little children.

Cynthia - if you're reading this - all your sweet rightwing Super DeLux Brand Christian girlfriends gossip wildly about you behind your back. In the name of "she needs our prayers," the Belles of Heaven Republican Women's Club has eviscerated you all over this county. Hon, at least the witches on the pagan left admit they're witches.

As true Americans in the spirit of Yankee Doodle we should stick that feather in our hat and call it Paganini.

3. .. and call it Paganini!
brilliant! :P

I'm starting to feel so left out in the heathen middle these days. What will they dream up next, vermin progressives? Pestilent Liberals?

I am definitely heathen, but pagansexual. But, one time, at bandcamp, I stuffed a christian.

"at least the witches on the pagan left admit they're witches" . . . I love it.

8. Do you remember when the Fort Bend Dems held
McCain's sign hostage. If I remember right someone nailed this huge sign to their headquarters. They took it down and held it hostage for the return of stolen Obama signs. It was priceless. The sheriff tried to intimidate them but that didn't work. Bubba scared off the sheriff. Susan is just so much fun- I'm so glad she's ours. But then if she were a winger she wouldn't be funny.

11. no, I missed that
but imo, if you're stupid enough to nail up a McCain sign at the Democratic Party HQ, you've got no reason to complain when the sign is held "hostage." That group is so creative! :rofl:

15. I can't find Susan's post about the law but here's the sign stories
October 15 - An open letter to Rick Miller, Chairman of the Fort Bend County Republican Party --

Dear Mr. Miller,

I know you're probably plenty busy planning events like the one you participated in two years ago when you and your thugs proudly whacked an innocent 70 year old woman and all, so you probably forgot all about this.


However, something has come to my attention that needed to come to my attention. Somehow, quite by accident I am almost certain, this 4 foot by 8 freekin' foot McCain Palin sign ended up on the front of the Fort Bend Democrats Headquarters.

I suspect it walked itself to our headquarters to surrender, and nailed itself to the front of our building in an act of redemption. Velma agrees, saying that explains why it's in Democratic blue waving all that white.

It has been carefully taken down and put in our storage facility. We will be delighted for you to come pick it up and pay our small and reasonable storage fee of $20 a day. Since it is the only large McCain Palin sign any of us have seen in the entire county, we are certain that you'll want it back. However, please be aware that we do not accept checks, stocks, or promises of future earning on social security private investments from Republicans. We only take cash from Republicans. I'm sure you understand, what with the unfortunate economic mishaps of the last 8 years.

Your bill is now $40. I am sorry I let it go so long before getting in touch with you, but I've been real busy making helmets for 70 year old women.

Additionally, many of our Obama/Biden yardsigns in Greatwood, Pecan Grove, and First Colony have been removed from our front yards and replaced with McCain/Palin signs. Mr. Miller, I know those suckers are a drag on the market, but we don't want them either.

I was hoping we could meet on some neutral ground and exchange your signs to get our signs back. Stafford, perhaps?

I'll be the woman in the helmet with the 11 foot pole, because, darlin', I wouldn't touch you or one of those signs with a 10 foot one.

As ever,
Susan


October 17 - Another open letter to Rick Miller, chairman of the Fort Bend County Republican Party.

Dear Mr. Miller,

I am sorry it has come to this.

Your wandering herd is still taking Obama signs out of our folks' yards and replacing them with McCain signs.



Since you have not responded to my plea for reconciliation and prisoner exchange, we are left with no other choice than to take hostages.

We will execute a letter a day until you return our signs. We are serious about this. We have a majic marker and we know how to use it.

We didn't want it to come to this, but you have left us with no choice.

As ever,
Susan

12. I'm a proud member of the Pagan Left. I love that term!
I'm going to use it a lot!

One of my other favorites (can't remember who coined it now, might've been Falwell before he passed on), was "Sex-obsessed Leftist Operatives", or SOLO!!!

Oddly appropriate that this cartoon graced the editorial page of my local newspaper this morning ...





... good timing from the "Family Values" party.

Do we get to be ignored again? :hide:

32. "Pagan" is obviously scarier than "athiest"
I think the next jump is to the Satanist Left.

33. Yeah, and if the right wing nuts are more scared by "Pagan" maybe I will revert
Edited on Tue Jul-07-09 11:10 AM by csziggy
Back to being a pagan! I'm tired of being afraid of what the RWNs are going to do to our country next, I want them to fear us!

Edited for clarity.
