Notwithstanding the Bush administration's calls for national unity, right-minded Republicans are still trying to demonize Democrats. American Renewal, the lobbying wing of the Family Research Council, has launched an advertising campaign suggesting that Tom Daschle is a Saddam Hussein sympathizer. "What do Saddam Hussein and Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle have in common?" stated a news release announcing the ad campaign. "Neither man wants America to drill for oil in Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge." While we're talking guilty associations, now might be a good time to read For Faith and Family: Christian Right Advocacy at the United Nations. According to this investigative report by Political Research Associates, the Christian Right's "pro-family coalition works closely with conservative Islamic governmental delegates at the UN, including delegates from Algeria, Libya, Iran, Pakistan and the Sudan, counterparts in Africa and Asia." What do the Taliban and the Family Research Council have in common? They both hate feminists and homosexuals.
