Jeb Bush is in sheer desperation mode. He tweeted the picture of the gun above with one work, “America”. Really? That’s what Jeb! thinks “America” is – a gun made by  Belgian-owned gun manufacture FN Herstal ? That’s just wrong on multiple levels.

And how pathetic is it that, although he left the governor’s office at the start of 2007, he still had “Gov Jeb Bush” engraved on his weapon. He needs that “Gov” title to feel important, I guess.

On the show today

For an atheist Jew, I have a perverse fascination with religion, so when I heard that my friend Fred Clarkson had authored a new report called “When Exemption is the Rule: The Religious Freedom Strategy of the Christian Right,”  I knew I had to talk with him. 

It’s a lengthy report covering a lot of territory. You can start with Fred’s most recent article, “Dominionism is the New Religious Freedom,” and proceed from there! 

And be sure to take a few minutes to watch this train wreck with Rafael Cruz Sr. and the reprehensible Pat Robertson.

If it’s Wednesday, I spend a segment with Deborah Newell for a roundup of some of the most FloriDUH news stories from our state. Today, we included these:

Caryville woman believes her goats are being sexually assaulted

Keys man searching for car keys gets locked in trunk, sheriff’s office says

Man says Jesus told him to strip naked, walk down the street

18-Year-Old Florida Man Arrested After Posing as Doctor, Opening Medical Practice

Florida man tosses gator into Wendy’s drive-thru window

That should hold you over for another week.  

I’ll be back tomorrow with Driftglass and Howie Klein, radio or not!
