A Grad Student of Truth Vandalizing SUVs of Falsehood With Spraypaint of Sarcasm

Nader Was Right; There Is No Difference Bewteen The Parties. The Halls Of Congress Are Being Flooded With Homeschooled Anarchist Evergreen and Hampshire Alumnists, Interning For The Democrats. A NY Times article about Pantrick Henry College, a small university for homeschooled evangelical Christian kids. Out of the 100 interns in the White House this semester, 7 are from the tiny 240-student, 4-year old university. If the school seems like a pipeline to put young Left Behind maniacs into to power, it is. Said university president Michael Farris, "We are not home-schooling our kids just so they can read. The most common thing I hear is parents telling me they want their kids to be on the Supreme Court. And if we put enough kids in the farm system, some may get to the major leagues." In fact, after the partial-birth abortion ban was passed, Farris was one of only five evangelical Christians invited for the White House for the occasion. The university president is also a protege of rapture-inspired novelist Tim LaHaye, and like LaHaye, Farris styles himself a man of the pen. He has written a novel that describes a terrifying near-future in which Democrats win a landslide election and start attacking God and country by outlawing parents from spanking their kids or teaching them Fundamentalist Christianity. I'm sure it sucks.
