(From CNN.com) - "Why are there so many Jews on the 9th Circuit?"...

[digg=http://www.digg.com/political_opinion/Why_are_there_so_many_Jews_on_the_9th_Circuit_satire] Said Sean Hanity on Fox's Hannity and Colmes last night. His question came during a discussion about a recent 9th circuit decision in which the court decided 5-4 that the ban on selling pork in the predominantly Jewish community of Rio Rancho was constitutional because the community was only ten minutes from a town without such a ban and the law had been approved during a town referendum two years before. All five Jewish members of the court voted in favor of the decision. Sean Hannity added "There is supposed to be a separation of church and state in this country and it's obvious that that hasn't occurred in this case."

Sean Hannity's religiously explosive remarks fueled calls from every major newspaper as well as the Anti-Defamation League and people on all sides of the political spectrum for an immediate apology and resignation by the talk show host...

Oh, wait. I got that wrong. Rosie O'Donnell commented on ABC that there were separation of church and state issues because all of the justices who voted to uphold the partial birth abortion ban were Catholic.

I also got the part wrong about the media and people on all sides of the political spectrum calling for her apology and resignation. So far, I can only find one mention of this conversation when doing a search on Google News. Not one major news outlet is covering it. But you know, there are far worse things, like name calling (16,300 entries) to be focusing on than someone who implied that a specific religious group should be barred from the political process.

A similar tirade by Eleanor Clift at Newsweek basically says the same thing as Rosie did but manages to be smart enough to only imply religion instead of outright saying it.

Some others, not so smart. Amy Welborn has more. And some more anti-Catholic cartoons from American history. Aren't you glad we've come so far?

The No-Nothings are back.

I’m still trying to figure out where abortion is mentioned in the Constitution. Separation of Church and State does not seem to be the issue here, but separation of Europe and The US. Since when is America part of mainland Europe, and is it ok if we secede from them? Do we have to follow their views to the point of our economy, beliefs, and general population going down the drain? Why does it make sense to these people to not make sense?

Here’s a good quote that I found on another post, don’t know who said it:

Talk sense to a fool and he calls you foolish. Talk sense to a liberal and he calls you a racist, sexist, biggot, homophobe, denier.

Makes you think…
