I usually leave the sewer-diving for masters like Sadly No! or Tbogg, but this headline lept out at me.....

David Klinghoffer explains why John Edwards needs the Ten Commandments.

It's basically just blather about how 'Murkins need more Jaysus in their lives etc, but here is the nut graph in Ms. Lopez's incisive interviewing...

Lopez: John Edwards?

Klinghoffer: He should review the Tenth Commandment, “You shall not covet.” The speech he’s best known for, the “Two Americas” oration — “One America that does the work, another America that reaps the rewards,” etc. — is nothing more than a piece of incitement to coveting.


Um, so those gnarly poor folks should just STFU and be happy with their poverty?

"Incitement to coveting"?


liberally stolen from watertiger.... I had to.

Clearly none of the neo-cons. Otherwise they'd have to think about #5 (or #6, if you're something other than Catholic or Lutheran): "Thou shalt not kill".

Oh, and the one about adultery ... and the one about stealing ... Uh ... pretty much all of them, actually.

Geez, it's clear these bozos have never read anything but Leviticus, and then only the bit that says "burn teh gays!"

Klinghoffer sounds anti-American to me. He sounds like he's completely against "the land of opportunity" where ambition drives Americans to work hard so they can acheive and raise their children to have it better then themselves.
Klinghoffer sounds like a Commie who thinks everyone should all have it the same, owners of nothing, living in the same cramped apartment with nothing to hope or strive for.

I like the little head banging against the keyboard graphic.
And as for the Commandments, since the Neocons have made Bush their personal God, I guess that is breaking the FIRST Commandment...
