It’s already that time again. As much as Republicans talk about a campaign season that is going to be short and low key, the establishment candidates are lining up Banksters and vulture capitalists, while the rest are scurrying to capture that attention of the base and the baggers.
Louisiana Governor and GOP presidential hopeful Bobby Jindal is the keynote speaker for a rally funded and organized by an anti-LGBT group that has blamed gay people for causing the Holocaust and advocated imprisoning homosexuals. So why isn’t his appearance garnering national media attention?
On January 24, Jindal will keynote a six-hour prayer event at Louisiana State University called "The Response: A Call To Prayer For a Nation In Crisis." The event is sponsored and funded by the American Family Association (AFA), one of the most extreme anti-gay hate groups in the country. It’s also being staffed by a number of notorious anti-LGBT activists.
The event has drawn protests from members of the LSU community. On January 22, the Faculty Senate passed a resolution expressing displeasure with the event, and a university spokesperson has clarified that the rental of an LSU facility "does not imply any endorsement."

Rachel Maddow has more, including a woman who could be a Joni Ernst clone. Once again, a Republican governor is kicking off his campaign with a demonstration that he loves Republican-Supply-side Jesus (the exact opposite of the real Jesus) and hates all the same people that Republican Supply-side Pseudo Christians hate.
The sad thing is that all the Republican candidates will eventually pay homage to Dominionists.
Now that takes care of prophets, but what about profits?
This week many Republicans traveled to the annual Koch Brothers retreat. Some candidates are attending in public, perhaps to cover up those Republicans who are attended secretly, as Standartenfuhrer Scalia and TEAbag Thomas have in the past. Those who will be there on the record are “Deport them all” Rubio (R-FL), “Idiot, Son of Idiot, Named after Idiot” Paul (R-KY), “Uranus Inspector” Cruz (R-TX), and “Fartfuhrer of Fitzwalkerstan” Walker (R-FW)(formerly WI).
So whether it’s for prophets or for profits, the whoring has begun.
