Of course Cardinal Dolan has been invited. He's one of the least Christian people on the list.

Values voters are devoid of values.

That's a lot of orifices.

So, the conventions then this goldmine of quotes from the right with Ryan and possibly Romney behind the same podium then Romney's 2011 tax return and the debates in October.

Looks like we're in for a laff-riot.

Sure they have values. Meanness, lack of charity and lack of empathy may be warped and antisocial, but they're values.

there's not asterisk next to romney's name so i'm assuming he hasn't confirmed yet, as opposed to ryan who is planning on leading a christian-music themed spinning class.

Say what you will about the tenants of conservative Republicanism, but at least it's an ethos.

$99 per dumbass that wants to attend, more or less. What a novel way to raise money.

/$50 entry for students: give kids a lower barrier of entry since they are easier to indoctrinate.

//$75 group rate: because hey, if some dumbass wants to bring a bunch of other dumbasses along, he's providing the summit a service and deserves that discount.

///scholarships available? They're turning people into ELITISTS?

What's the implication of "value voters"? That no one else has any values? They think everyone else just goes into the booth and roll some dice or flip a coin or something?

If there are intelligent aliens out there paying attention to what's going on here, wouldn't it be great if they showed up at this event and transported the entire lot to Ceti Alpha V?

"Speechless-Silencing the Christians"

I saw a CBC documentary about the 2011 tornadoes in Alabama, and knew it was a Canadian production because no one was quoted talking about God's will or some such. And they showed people trying to improve government planning and scientific monitoring.

A US documentary? Lots of talk about Jesus keeping them safe.

"Values Voters". Saw one on CNN that actually said something I agree with. Then he started complaining about Sharia Law and touting the Christian ideals this country was founded on...

...a hypocrite of the highest order, a "Values Voter" doesn't realize that all of these laws they want to pass against gays, women, and atheists are, aside from whatever punishments they entail, exactly the same laws as Sharia . The only laws they really object to are the ones that pertain to them as Christians, which, in Islam, would be the ones that also apply to atheists. Again, hypocrites of the highest order.

I don't think graduation from Glenn Beck University turns you into an elitist, even if you didn't pay for it.

Thoroughly biased and snarky write-up (it is Kos, after all), but very amusing and nearly entirely true.

They think that Democrats just go into the voting booth with a freshly-aborted fetus and drip some of its blood on their Necronomicon -- whatever number Chapter the book snaps open to is the ballot position to vote.

I farking hate the notion, held only by the right wing, that you only have "values" if you walk in lock step with them. fark you GOP, everyone has values even if they don't align with your dream of the 1950s that never farking existed.

I'll bet that one's a hoot! And only "101"? With all the experts there, you'd think they'd offer more advanced courses.

Good Lord, the B's alone are a cavalcade of derp!

Love the diversity hire list as well.

Bobby Jindall, Star Parker and Allan West.

Big ole tent, eh?

Oh look, Ollie North as well!

It's like a K-Tel record of FAIL's greatest hits.

While I agree with the sentiment behind DailyKOS, is it too much to ask for a column that isn't written like so many vaginas spraying into the wind? 50% of Farkers post drunk with better quality results than this writer, who apparently gets paid for it.

You mean back in the wonderful 1950s when the top marginal federal income tax rate was 91 and 92 percent and GDP was flying? Good times.

It has long been obvious that most of these people if they could get past their prejudices should convert to islam and then have a dozen or so countries they could move to that are exactly in keeping with their preferred mode of government.

/of course if they could get past their prejudices they wouldn't be a "values voter" in the first place

Jesus would dig Bill and Ted.

Hell, if Jesus came back today, he'd be born of an immigrant carpenter, show strong reliance and faith in God, find a second career in his 30s and end up being hated and reviled by the established authorities.

In short, he'd be Hispanic. No wonder he was named Jesus.
