10:54 am: Return of the Flaming Asshole (Phelps, not me)
The Reverend Fred Phelps, whose website is well-known, has finally hit upon a way to make the right wing hate him just as much as the left wing; he is now protesting the funerals of fallen American soldiers. Apparently, their deaths are part of God's punishment for America's tolerance of gay people.

Words cannot express, and so I won't even try. But as anybody who's worn a Gore shirt to a Bush speech will tell you, these guys may discover that their new provocation is ill-timed.

So here's the thing. Once Phelps and the Westboro Baptist Church all get disappeared by the secret assassin team of Dick and Mary Cheney, we will be left to ourselves to figure out exactly what it is that God hates. It is a heavy responsibility, but one that I think that we are all ready for.

"The Plaid Adder" at Democratic Underground has posted an excellent analysis of Phelps's brand of hate. His thesis is that all this time, Phelps really hasn't been about gays at all - he's just hateful, period, and now that his anti-gay act is getting less and less press, he's happy to move onto something else.
