hillary: u can’t choose ur family, but u can choose ur pastor.

that’s hill’s official comment on rev. wright (i cannot BELIEVE we are still stuck on this, btw). 

lol.  u cant choose some family, but im pretty sure u can choose ur spouse.  hope that lying adulterer she chose to stick with is working well for her. *cough* the irony is a bit hilarious there

but, i find it even hilariouser that the religious association she chose is, apparently, an uberconservative, fascist-esque religious group known as “The Family”  (other ‘religious groups’ known as ‘the family’ include the Children of God cult and Charles Manson’s little garden of happy followers).

here’s an excerpt that was excerpted in barbara erenreich’s article about another article @ the huffington post:

During the 1960s the Family forged relationships between the U.S. government and some of the most anti-Communist (and dictatorial) elements within Africa’s postcolonial leadership. The Brazilian dictator General Costa e Silva, with Family support, was overseeing regular fellowship groups for Latin American leaders, while, in Indonesia, General Suharto (whose tally of several hundred thousand “Communists” killed marks him as one of the century’s most murderous dictators) was presiding over a group of fifty Indonesian legislators. During the Reagan Administration the Family helped build friendships between the U.S. government and men such as Salvadoran general Carlos Eugenios Vides Casanova, convicted by a Florida jury of the torture of thousands, and Honduran general Gustavo Alvarez Martinez, himself an evangelical minister, who was linked to both the CIA and death squads before his own demise.

sounds to me like hill & her happy family are a bit more threatening than a rightly-disgruntled black man in chicago, no?

the rest of the article is here.  more info on The Family is here and here.  absurdity is fricken everywhere.
