Young Republican National Federation Chair accused of sexually assaulting sleeping man
Folks, when it rains it pours...the GOP sexual hypocrite parade continues in all its glory. I give you...Glenn Murphy, Jr., the recently elected chairman of the Young Republican National Federation (also the RNC Chair for Clark County, Indiana and formerly the YRNF Secretary) has been accused of sexually assaulting a sleeping man. Immediately following the accusation, he came up with an unrelated reason to resign, and the YRNF cleansed their website of his name.Taking Down Words, an Indiana blog, has been following this guy for some time. And guess what? Apparently this isn't the first time his mouth has ended up on someone's privates while they were asleep. Glenn Murphy has a prior arrest for sexual battery. Here's the 1998 Clark County police report. A snippet, for your entertainment.
Allegedly, Murphy and another YR were drunk and crashing at Murphy's sister's house. The other man apparently awoke in the morning to find Murphy giving him a non-consensual blow job. The Clark County (Indiana) Sheriff's Department is charging Murphy with "criminal deviate conduct", a Class B felony.

Who's next, shall we start placing bets?

Florida theme park offers bloody crucifixion performances
CNN's Sean Callebs reported Tuesday on a religious theme park in Orlando, Florida called "Holy Land Experience."
"The biggest attraction at Holy Land Experience is the crucifixion that you can see six days a week, as graphic and grim as possible," said Callebs, showing shots of a bloodied Jesus writhing on the cross, before interviewing the actor, who called the experience "humbling."
However, Callebs continued, "the performances, along with what's billed as the largest private collection of Biblical artifacts outside the Vatican, haven't been enough to keep the park out of debt." Holy Land Experience was $8 million behind and had almost been forced to close several times, before it was purchased this June by Trinity Broadcasting Network, the world's largest Christian television network. Since then, attendance is up, and the park has also won a battle to retain its tax-exempt status.
The following video is from CNN's American Morning, broadcast on August 7.

Pink Floyd - Lost for Words
I was spending my time in the doldrums
I was caught in a cauldron of hate
I felt persecuted and paralysed
I thought that everything else would just wait
While you are wasting your time on your enemies
Engulfed in a fever of spite
Beyond your tunnel vision reality fades
Like shadows into the night
To martyr yourself to caution
Is not going to help at all
because ther'll be no safety in numbers
When the right one walks out of the door
Can you see your days blighted by darkness?
Is it true you beat your fists on the floor?
Stuck in a world of isolation
While the ivy grows over the door
So I open my door to my enemies
And I ask could we wipe the slate clean
But they tell me to please go and fuck myself
You know you just can't win
