Such CRAP!!
And that's putting it mildly

WARNING! Harsh language alert. You know the drill.

I've recently posted concerning the myth of The Catholic Vote. And as much as I respect her and her organization, I have to call out Kathy Coll (who happens to be the president of the Pro-Life Coalition) for perpetuating the lie that was once known as The Catholic Vote.

As Madame Coll stated in a fluff piece by the Catholic News Agency; "While a candidate cannot win on the Catholic vote alone, there is no doubt Pennsylvania Catholics are a key swing vote candidates must understand... no politician can win if they have upset the Catholic apple cart."With all due respect... Kathy, what planet are you living on? I'd like to point out a wee bit of reality that just may burst her bubble.

Just the first sentence in this article from The Boston Globe says it all; (Emphasis mine) Obama gets key Pa. endorsement
By Sasha Issenberg

Globe Staff / March 29, 2008
PITTSBURGH - Senator Bob Casey, a champion of the working-class Catholic voters at the core of Hillary Clinton's Pennsylvania coalition, endorsed Barack Obama yesterday, the latest swipe between two warring dynasties whose battles have defined the Democratic Party's search for a modern identity.
Well, well. The "champion" of working-class Catholics is supporting the same sorry bastard who actively fought against the Illinois Born Alive Infant Protection Act. If you want to read about how The Obamanation fought against granting personhood to babies who survived abortion.... how he wanted them killed... babies... read this.

And lets not forget that these very same "Catholics" that Bob "Bag of Silver" Casey wants to bring over to Obama, they're considered to be "the core of Hillary Clinton's Pennsylvania coalition".

This is such bull shit.

In all sincerity, Cardinal Rigali... PLEASE come out in no uncertain terms, and protect your flock from the wolves. NOW is the time we need courageous leaders, not gutless political appeasers with the backbone of a chocolate eclair.

Now would definately be a good time for him to come out and speak. Hopefully his time away from Mahony has gotten him a backbone.

If Rigali won't say anything, maybe we can get Archbishop Burke to come out swinging.

The sound you hear is Bob Casey Sr. turning over in his grave.

I agree w/you that "the Catholic vote" is more myth than reality these days.

But--that would put a lot of "Catholic opinion leaders" out of the business of taking money from candidates to 'advise' them on how to capture 'the Catholic vote.'

Those very same "opinion leaders" (Think Deal Hudson) are very busy advising the candidates that there is a large and unified bloc of voters who WILL vote whatever way Deal & Co. tell them to...

Yah, right...
