Dumb James Dobson Switches Endorsement To Rand Paul After Realizing He's Pro-Life

News

James Dobson, home-schooling everyone's childrenJames Dobson, the strange old Jeebus coot from the 1900s, is apparently still alive and still weighing in on political races that have nothing to do with him and about which he is ill-informed. Consider the current Kentucky GOP Senate primary, where FREEDOM SPAWN Doctor Rand Paul is on the verge of upsetting Mitch McConnell's hand-picked candidate, Trey Grayson, a generic establishment robot who loves war and death, everywhere. Grayson got Dick Cheney's endorsement, which is considered awesome in Kentucky. And until very recently, Grayson also had James Dobson's endorsement, locking up the Fundies. But then idiot James Dobson realized he had no idea what he was talking about, and he still doesn't, but he's switching his endorsement to Rand Paul anyway.


Apparently it takes months of investigation and consultation for James Dobson to determine whether a candidate is pro-life or pro-choice, which is usually one of the first three or four things a candidate explicitly makes clear in official campaign literature. Also, Rand Paul is obviously pro-life, THIS IS A KENTUCKY GOP PRIMARY, JESUS.

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dr. James Dobson has changed his endorsement in the Republican primary for United States Senate in Kentucky. Below is the text of Dr. James Dobson's endorsement of Dr. Rand Paul in the race for U.S. Senate.

Dr. James Dobson: "Have you ever made an embarrassing mistake? I did just that last week. I was given misleading information about the candidacy of Dr. Rand Paul, who is running in the Republican Primary for the U.S. Senate. Senior members of the GOP told me Dr. Paul is pro-choice and that he opposes many conservative perspectives, so I endorsed his opponent.

“But now I've received further information from OB/GYN's in Kentucky whom I trust, and from interviewing the candidate himself.

“I now know that he is avidly pro life. He believes that life begins at conception.

“He opposes earmarking and supports Israel. He identifies with the Tea Party movement and believes in home schooling. Sounds like my kind of man."

(Since when did "home schooling" become a firm Fundie requirement? Must have something to do with opposing socialism, which Jesus hates.)

Anyway. The Paultards are probably correct in applying their one explanation for everything to this situation: THE ESTABLISHMENT IS TRYING TO DESTROY RAND PAUL! Pretty much, right? He does not love bombing everyone as much as he ought to. So Dick Cheney or Bill Kristol or whoever must have recently given Dobson a call and said "You would love this Trey Grayson! YOU WOULD HATE RAND PAUL. Rand Paul hates the opposite of whatever you like. Also! Jerusalem! Must remain out of Muslim hands for the Rapture! And Rand Paul is Muslim, oh noes! Goodbye, James."

A guest post by "Knitsy McPurlson," which we suspect is not a real name.

Yr Wonkette is not the only website run by brilliant peoples unafraid to poke people with sharp, pointy sticks. Ravelry.com – a website for knitters, crocheters, and other folks interested in textiles and fiber arts – is poking people with knitting needles, which are very sharp indeed.

This past weekend, Ravelry.com's founders showed the world how easy it is to de-platform white nationalists and racists when they banned all "support of Donald Trump and his administration" from their website, concluding they "cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy." Seems like people smart enough to decode a knitting pattern are also smart enough to decode Trump's not-so-hidden message of racism and white nationalism.

One day, God willing, my grandchildren will click open their history textbooks and read about the Central American migrant internment camps. They'll learn about sick kids, locked in cages, kept hungry and dirty and cold for weeks on end, and they'll be horrified.

"Bubbie," they'll say, "how could this happen in America? How could there be toddlers sleeping on the ground without blankets, without soap or toothbrushes to clean themselves?"

"I don't know. I wish I had done more. I'm ashamed," I'll say. We will all have to answer for this atrocity. But some of us will have to answer more than others. Not just the archvillains like Stephen Miller and John Kelly, but the people who kept right on doing their jobs, even as those jobs morphed into defending concentration camps.
