Woo Hoo Haw
Well, there's more on those state legislators from the land of Woo.
When we last saw our intrepid pair, Texas Republican House Appropriations Chairman Warren (Moe) Chisum and Georgia GOP Representative Ben (Larry) Bridges, Moe was trying to stick his thumb in Larry's eye at the same time as he was blaming Larry for getting him into a mess with the Anti Defamation League over a memo Moe claims he distributed to his fellow Texans as a favor to Larry. Among other things, the memo and the website it pointed to suggest that Jewish physicists are part of a "centuries-old conspiracy" to destroy the Christian teachings of Earth's origins.
Larry has now denied knowing anything about it and is trying to hit 76-year-old retired high school teacher Marshall (Curly) Hall with a baseball bat. Curly, who runs the anti-evolution Web site in question, www.fixedearth.com, and who claims that his wife ran Larry's election campaign, says that Larry gave him approval to write the memo in Larry's name, which has been distributed to legislators in several states.
Curly is also complaining about his website being described as anti-Semitic. "I think they tar people with that brush a little too readily," he said.
He may have a point. We should beat him with the "stupid" brush a few million times first.
