Now, as annoying as his holiness Peter Popoff
] and his Miracle Manna Loaf may be (I just saw it on television, and trust me - it's mighty annoying)
, This bit of news is actually a bit more troublesome...
the Republicans are making a last ditch effort to propmote their Faith-Based initiatives in a recently released report, despite the program's obvious failures.
The report, titled "Innovations in Compassion," states that George Bush's failed program was in fact a huge success. In the face of certain defeat, they have just declared victory and skulked away.
According to Americans United For the Separation of Church and State executive director, Rev. Barry W. Lynn,
"The Bush initiative played crass politics with social service funding and jeopardized civil rights and civil liberties. All the PR spin in the world can't turn this monumental Bush failure into a success. President Bush should have gotten the Golden Globe, for playing a 'compassionate conservative' while doing precious little to actually help disadvantaged Americans."
You just know that some smarmy congressman is going to hold up this stupid report in session and use it to "prove" the worth of some cockamamie scheme, like making Peter Popoff's mighty Miracle Manna Loaf a mandatory part of the national school lunch program.
