Bush-haters Phillip Adams and Alan Ramsey may be surprised to learn that their deeply intellectual belief system is shared by certain residents of Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Here’s that city’s Kathleen Ferris:

Remember the plastic turkey the commander in chief took to the troops in Iraq on their first Thanksgiving there, when was it, three years ago?

Well, no, because it never happened. Ferris, an instructor at the Nashville State Community College, donated $450 to John Kerry’s campaign. Lately she’s been engaged in chain whispering with other Mother Sheehan supporters:

More than 200 people gathered in the rain last night in Centennial Park for a candlelight vigil supporting the cause of Sheehan, who has been conducting a personal vigil outside Bush’s ranch in Texas for the past few weeks.

Participants also did a “chain whisper” in each other’s ear: “We honor Casey Sheehan and other fallen soldiers. Pass it on.”

I’d love to know how that line ended up after being processed by 200 Sheehan-obedient turkey whisperers … “We hombres are soldiers for Casey Kasem. On Passover!”

    1. I think Adams has finally found religion what with that whole plastic turkey belief system there – “Drink this gravy, for it is my condiment”.  Perhaps they all worship here.  But what to name this exciting new religion?

      I’ll start with “Our Miracle of Ductilis Avis”.  Funny how these worshippers are the first to look down on dumb born-again ‘mercins.  It must be one of those sectarian things.

    1. Plenty of moonbats here in Middle Tennessee. Fortunately they are outnumbered by the RWDB contingent. The Tennessean is a typical mouthpiece for the left, owned by Gannett (USA Today’s parent), and includes Dem talking points in the daily letters section. There was a plastic turkey sighting there just last week.

    1. Are you sure that was “chain whispering” going on? If it was a candlelight vigil in the rain, that whispering noise might just have been the sssssssssssssss of candles going out in the drizzle.

    1. Casey Sheehan voluntarily re-enlisted in the U.S. military specifically to participate in the war.  He was a willing and adult participant in what Cindy Sheehan has repeatedly called the illegal opression of the Iraqi people.

      Accordingly, the logically exclusive choices are to support Cindy Sheehan and denounce the volunteer war criminal Casey Sheehan, or to support Casey Sheehan and denounce the woman who says he voluntarily participated in an illegal and immoral war.  One cannot support mother and son without self-contradiction.

    1. W-M-L-

      Dude you’re still trying to apply logic to these people?

      That’s the whole ever loving problem.

      Which for some stupid reason reminds me of a Supertramp song-{give me a break-when I lived in Canada you had to listen to this shat…long story on trying to keep the US out of the “Canadian Culture”(!?)-English bands had to be played by a greater ratio or something like that}-

      Now watch what you say
      Or they´ll be calling you a radical
      A liberal, oh fanatical, criminal
      Oh won´t you sign up your name
      We´d like to feel you´re
      Acceptable, respectable, oh presentable, a vegetable!
      At night when all the world´s asleep
      The questions run too deep
      For such a simple man
      Won´t you please, please tell me what we’ve learned
      I know it sounds absurd
      But please tell me who I am, who I am ,who I am.

      See the end of the song where it’s all about them?

      Well that’s the second ever loving problem with ‘em.

    1. We hollered “case o’ shite and other frickin’ nonsense”, pissed em off.

    1. “Chain-whispering”?  Suddenly bird flu seems like such a good idea…

    1. Madawaskan: “But please tell me who I am, who I am ,who I am.

      “See the end of the song where it’s all about them?

      “Well that’s the second ever loving problem with ‘em.”

      That’s not only the second problem, it’s also the third.  It’s not only “all about them”, it’s also about them asking SOMEONE ELSE to TELL them who they are.

      And THAT may be problem #1 in order of magnitude.

    1. Any others in Aus watch 60 Minutes last night about Mother Sheehan?

      There were two military gents tossed out of the tent for dissent.

      Didn’t spend much time on the people complaining that their friends/loved ones photos were being used in this campaign without permission.

  1. I loved that song madawaskan.  I sang it all the time.  But I think you might be a bit wrong on the lyrics.  As I recall it went something like:

    Now watch what you say
    da da da da da a radical
    A liberal, oh fanatical, criminal
    Oh da da da da da
    da da da da da da
    Acceptable, respectable, receptacle,
    a cubicle!
    At night when all the world´s asleep
    The questions run too deep
    For da da da da daaaaaaaaaaaa
    Won´t you please, please tell me what we’ve learned
    I know it sounds absurd
    But please tell me I’m a yam,
    I am yammmmmmmmm!
    I am yammmmmmmmm!

    (shift to sax solo, estastic applause, many bodacious and buxom ladies eying me hungrily all while licking their lips, redirect attention to calculus exam)

    Oh shit.
