Right Wing Leftovers

  • Did you know that Former U. S. Sen. Rick Santorum is getting paid $1,750 a piece for every inane column he writes for the Philadelphia Inquirer?
  • Phyllis Schlafly will receive the James C. Dobson Vision and Leadership Award at this year’s Values Voter Summit.
  • Miss California is quickly becoming a right-wing hero/martyr thanks to her stated opposition to marriage equality during the Miss USA pageant.
  • Liberty Counsel is launching its annual “Friend or Foe” Graduation Prayer Campaign, vowing to “litigate to ensure that prayer and religious viewpoints are not suppressed during public school graduation ceremonies.”
  • The Susan B. Anthony List is urging “pro-life Senators to do all they can — including support a filibuster — in order to stop abortion activist Dawn Johnsen’s nomination for Office of Legal Counsel,” saying her nomination “holds significant implications for our next Supreme Court battle.”
  • Finally, Alveda King weighs in on the recent DHS report, complaining that it makes no sense to suggest that anti-abortion militants might link up with racist groups because “Abortion is the white supremacist’s best friend.”
