Here, Have Some More Opiate

I'm waiting for the shrieks of, "Theocrats!"

But of course, they won't come.

This is after all, nothing new......and actually, quite common.
With a swaying, purple-robed choir behind him and Davis at his side, Clinton stood at the pulpit of the First African Methodist Episcopal Church in Los Angeles, the city's oldest black congregation, and cited Scripture, comparing the recall of the embattled Democratic governor to the mob that wanted to stone an adulteress during Jesus's time.

"Let he among you without sin, cast the first stone," Clinton said. Everyone in politics makes mistakes, the former president told the congregation, which interrupted his talk with repeated standing ovations. But he said the recall is misdirected anger. "Oh, the governor didn't make every single problem go away," Clinton said. "So let's throw a rock at him. It'll make us feel better."

Clinton appealed for cooler heads. "Gray Davis and I have been friends for a long time, and I don't want this happening to him. But this is way bigger than him. It's you I'm worried about. It's California I worry about. I don't want you to become a laughingstock, a carnival or the beginning of a circus in America where we throw people out for making tough decisions," Clinton said.

Then he paused, and urged California voters, "Don't do this. Don't do this," as the congregation erupted in applause.

But, given the usual screaming fit thrown by the Democrat Party if Republicans even dare to say or do anything of the sort......no less hypocritical.
