A couple of weeks ago in a post called “Betraying Our Kids,” I referred to this web site that Bushco concocted called the Presidential Prayer Team for Kids and commented on the odious fact that our tax dollars are being used for this utterly shameless disregard of the separation of church and state upon which our country is based.
Well, this week the site profiles the family of Supreme Court Nominee Samuel Alito, and as another blogger noted last week (can’t remember who), Alito’s family was posed under the portrait of a certain president who preceded Dubya and was born in Hope, Arkansas during the press conference announcing the Alito nomination. Of course, you would not know that from this photo, since the top of Bill Clinton’s head was effectively chopped off (a secret wish made real to a certain extent for Dubya, I suppose).
Also, the Presidential Prayer Team site this week discusses the faith of former President Lyndon Johnson. Of course, no mention is made that Dubya and his cohorts have done and will continue to do everything they possibly can to grind the reforms Johnson sponsored as part of his Great Society legislation on behalf of the poor, working people, elderly and minorities completely into dust.
