Does this mean our financial crisis is over?

Yeah, I thought you were suspending YPW. What gives? Country First, Dan.

No, no. Youth Pastor Watch is still suspended, just like the McCain campaign... which is running attack ads in swing states and sending surrogates to cable TV news programs to attack Obama. The McCain campaign is suspended because McCain says it is, not because it actually is. In the same spirit, YPW is suspended because I say that it is, not because I've actually stopped posting YPW items to Slog.

See how that works?

Dan, to be fair they were mimes, and mimes deserve death

Ha! I attended Mother Seton my whole life. Well, right up until I was 15 and wasn't forced to go anymore (which would have been right around 1999). Thankfully, I wasn't really involved there, nor do I remember the youth pastor in question (although I do recall shady circumstances around his departure). But I'm sure I wouldn't have been a target. I was a pretty chubby, obnoxious kid. If I were a youth pastor, I wouldn't have touched me. There were other kids who were way sexier than me.

Um, McCain/Failin ain't just running attack ads in swing states. We are getting them here in Chicago, IL - which is literally Obama's back yard.

YPW has many things in common with the McCain campaign. They both expose molesters.
Nothing like raping the country like the Republicans have to open peoples eyes. And McCain was right in there giving the country his dirtiest.
