Hell-bent for Election

The Rude Pundit quotes Martin Luther King:

Dives went to hell because he sought to be a conscientious objector in the war against poverty.

Exactly. Greenspan and the Chicago boys. Newtie. Governor Walker. The Koch brothers. Cantor. Perry. Reagan. Bush the Lesser. McConnell. The Tea Party. The two Pauls. On and on. All of them conscientious objectors in the war against poverty. And all of them bound, if the Bible is right, for the same place as Dives.

One of the old Burma Shave ads you used to see along the road said "He was right, dead right, as he sped along, but he's just as dead as if he'd been wrong." So will today's right be.

Or just as dead as if he'd been left, the GOP would say. But is left right? That's the question.
