The Daily Show - David Barton Pt. 1 Tags: Daily Show Full Episodes,Political Humor & Satire Blog,The Daily Show on Facebook With no academic credentials as a historian, David Barton toldThe Daily Show host Jon Stewart that his involvement in editing textbooks around the country was proof that he is a respected and esteemed historian. However, his work with textbooks if anything reveals his blatant partisanship and pseudo-scholarship. As Mariah Blake writes in The Washington Monthly, Barton’s Christian nation mythology was indeed just one aspect of his role shaping the... MORE >

As we know by now, the American Family Association's Bryan Fischer is quite serious when he says that our laws and behaviors in America ought to correspond to Biblical law ... as such, whales at Sea World ought to be put to death, and so should bears, and homosexuality should be criminalized, and people should be more like Phinehas, who saved Israel by killing two people who were engaged in sexual immorality. And so it is no surprise that Fischer is now opposing Elena Kagan's nomination to the Supreme Court on the grounds that she violates the "scriputal standard of judgment":... MORE >

In my last post, I noted that it was rather odd that a group like the Judicial Crisis Network would team up with a rabidly anti-gay Religious Right group like the Traditional Values Coalition ... but apparently right-wing judicial groups are not particularly choosy about the sorts of groups with whom align themselves, which explains why Curt Levey of the Committee for Justice was a guest on Bryan Fischer's radio program last Friday: As it turned out, the discussion was not all the interesting, as Levey rattled off the standard right-wing anti-Kagan talking points while calling Justice...

At this point, nobody really expects much from the RNC, but even by their low standards, this is pretty pathetic: Republicans are questioning Elena Kagan’s ties to a liberal icon and the nation’s first African American Supreme Court justice, Thurgood Marshall. In its first memo to reporters since Kagan’s nomination to the high court became public, the Republican National Committee highlighted Kagan’s tribute to Marshall in a 1993 law review article published shortly after his death. Kagan quoted from a speech Marshall gave in 1987 in which he said the Constitution as... MORE >

Peter Marshall, who suggests that California wildfires and Hurricane Katrina were divine punishments for tolerance of homosexuality, to its social studies curriculum “experts” panel.When Barton and Marshall released their recommendations for changing the curriculum, they suggested, among other things, dropping mentions of both César Chavez and Thurgood Marshall."Review committees" are now putting together a draft of a...

Strangely, outside of this one article, I could find no evidence... MORE >
