In the middle of a flogging scene!

Projector problems slow showings of ‘Passion’

Four different showings in a Mobile theater were interrupted at the same spot by projector problems. Or possibly Satan, if you believe some people.

Or anywhere, really

Aristide flees

He’s gone to the Dominican Republic, it seems. He’s seeking asylum in Morocco, Taiwan, or Panama. Why these three countries? I have no idea.

Hello, Great Falls!

Alabama judge brings case for commandments to Civic Center – greatfallstribune.com

Meanwhile, while his lawyers were trying to get Moore his job back (and St. Roy only wants his job back, right?) the man himself took the Roy Moore Ten Commandments tour to Great Falls, Montana.

Rocking a crowd of about 1000 disciples, St. Roy broke out one of his old favorites, “The issue is not about that 2 1/2-ton monument or the Ten Commandments itself. It’s about being able to acknowledge the God upon whom this nation is founded.” He followed with “I’m accused of disobeying a federal judge’s order, but that judge can’t make the law,” and “the Alabama review committee criticized me for not showing contrition, and they’re right, I didn’t,” to shouts of “Wahoo,” “Right on,” “Amen,” and “Freebird!”

Later, he went with some old favorites like “The phrase Separation of Church and State does not appear in the Constitution,” and finished with a call-and-response to the tune of “Shall we forsake the Lord God of our fathers?”

Moore groupie David Karvwnaris says that “I feel more and more that the lawyers are taking over the country and feathering their own nests.” Does he know that St. Roy is a lawyer? (Though not for long if I get my way. Disbar him already!)

Meanwhile:

Party’s enlistment of militia upsets human rights group – greatfallstribune.com

The Constitution Party, which has offered St. Roy its Presidential spot and which organized the appearance, enlisted the Militia of Montana to promote the event. The former chairman of the Party in Montana (the story doesn’t say who he is but I looked him up) says that “I don’t know a lot about the Militia of Montana, but am not opposed to it and agree with some of their ideas.” He said it, not me.

They do deserve each other

Deutsch, Klayman pick up endorsements

One of the candidates in the fabulously insane Republican US Senate race in Florida is Larry Klayman, the wacko Clinton-hunter from Judicial Watch. (Klayman is the sort of guy who campaigns on complaining about lawsuit abuse when he files more nuisance suits than anyone.) And he’s been endorsed by St. Roy Moore!

Moore said Klayman would “fight against corruption and immorality in our government, and the imposition of a secular society in our land.” Klayman was endorsed Thursday by former presidential candidate Alan Keyes, who called him “a conservative leader in the mode of Ronald Reagan to lead the fight for morality and ethics.” Former U.S. Rep. Bob Barr of Georgia has also signaled his help.

That’s a fun group, isn’t it? Roy, Larry, Bob, and Alan.
