DeLay's Friend: Stalin = Good. WTF?
Since DeLay was tied up w/the Pope's funeral on Friday (yeah right, I am SO SURE DeLay was mourning JP II... NOT) DeLay had his friend Edwin Vieira speak for him at a conference called Confronting the Judicial War on Faith. Vieira said that Justice Kennedy should be impeached b/c his philosophy, evidenced in his opinion striking down an anti-sodomy statute, “upholds Marxist, Leninist, satanic principles drawn from foreign law.” Vieira then quotes Stalin to uphold his personal stance on dealing w/the Supreme Crt: "Joseph Stalin had a slogan, and it worked very well for him, whenever he ran into difficulty: ‘no man, no problem' ". WTF? So, a man who is responsible for at least an estimated 43,000,000 deaths is better than Marx & Lenin? Lenin is estimated to have killed 4 million, and how can you really estimate how many deaths Satan, if you believe he exists, and Karl Marx could have caused since they are actually figures involved in philosophy, not dictatorships? Hmm... 43,000,000 vs 4,000,000... you do the math. But when has logic and facts ever entered into this rabid pack of the GOP's minds?
