Lie Down With Dogs, Get Up With Fleas...

...let a dog lead you, you invite the infestation. And don't bitch when you itch.

It's come out that Tony Perkins, leader of the Family Research Council (who organized the anti-Democrat "Justice Sunday") and active practicer of holier-than-thou-ness not only addressed the Council of Conservative Citizens (which is to the Ku Klux Klan close to what Sinn Fein is to the I.R.A.) as recently as 2001, he also paid $82,000 for David Duke's mailing list back in 1996, when he was running a Republican Senate campaign in Louisiana. That's the David Duke who is an ex-Grand Wizard of the KKK, by the way.

Not only is Mr. Perkins apparently both sympathetic with racist views and eager to court people who have racist views, he also doesn't have the courage to admit any of this. Asked later on about this issue, he said he never had anything to do with Duke, even though he had signed the purchase order for the mailing list. I guess he just signs purchase orders worth $82,000 so much that one more just didn't register with him.

So, you people who follow the Family Research Council...need to scratch?
