Who killed this woman's kitten?

I hate posting her link, but Debbie Schlussel is a good example of the rhetoric of the hard-core, hateful right. Her site reads like a sewer - gloating over failures and deaths of people who she disagrees with, frothing about things from "Deep Throat" to "Million-Dollar Baby".

Now, who pissed in her wheaties? Who drowned her kitten in front of her? Something must have happened to have her become so vitriolic as to call the death of Marla Ruzicka "poetic justice" because she demanded that the US count it's civilian casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan.

This woman is frightening, and vicious, and completely unaware of the rabid nature of her own words as she hisses at the "left wing" for being fascists.

Debbie, you've got something in your eye - looks like a beam.

Here's something that the Christian Right needs to be reminded of, apparently...

Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are the meek: for they shall posses the land.

Blessed are they who mourn: for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after justice: for they shall have their fill.

Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

Blessed are the clean of heart: for they shall see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

Blessed are they that suffer persecution for justice' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

I never thought I'd enjoy Green Day again.

...But here they are with "Holiday". Lyrics below.

Hear the sound of the falling rain,
Coming down like an Armageddon flame,
The shame,
The ones who died without a name,
Hear the dogs howling out of key,
To a hymn called "Faith and Misery",
And bleed,
the company lost the war today

I beg to dream and differ,
From the hollow lies,
This is the dawning of the rest of our lives
On Holiday

Hear the drum pounding out of time,
Another protester has crossed the line,
To find the money's on the other side,
Can I get another Amen?(AMEN)
There's a flag wrapped around the score of men,
A gag,
A plastic bag on a monument

I beg to dream and differ,
From the hollow lies,
This is the dawning of the rest of our lives
On Holiday

The representative from California has the floor

Zieg Heil to the president gas, man,
Bombs away is your punishment,
Pulverize the Eiffel towers,
Who criticize your government,
Bang, Bang goes the broken glass, man,
Kill all the fags that don't agree,
Trials by fire setting fire,
Is not a way that's meant for me,
Just cause,
Just cause because we're outlaws, yeah!

I beg to dream and differ,
From the hollow lies,
This is the dawning of the rest of our lives,
I beg to dream and differ,
From the hollow lies,
This is the dawning of the rest of our lives

This is our lives on holiday
