Thursday was May Day. It was also the National Day of Prayer, which really means the National Day of Self-Righteous Prigs Praying in Public Like the Pharisees Did.

Dobson leads off by saying the National Day of Prayer is not about politics. Referring to the fact that this is the 20th year of this particular observance, he says he "has never made any kind of political statement and [he] won't do it today."

Then he proceeds to make a political statement. After couching his remarks in the cloak of "morality," he goes on to say "President Obama, before he was elected, made it very clear that he wanted to be the abortion president." He continued with his exaggeration, saying "in a real sense, he is the abortion president."

After rambling on about a $1 surtax for the support of abortion, without missing an opportunity to also opine about how taxes always skyrocket, he claimed this "tax" would go to Planned Parenthood.

Dobson wants everyone to know that "tax" offends his conscience. Except it's a myth. It's a LIE. A big fat throbbing lie that he's using to make a political statement. If he had a conscience, he would acknowledge that.

It wasn't enough to just lie to his audience. Dobson also had to read the letter he sent out to his mailing list. He refuses to pay the surcharge. Which is fine, since he's not paying the surcharge.

Dobson's little blatantly political diatribe where he purports to defend the unborn is bad enough. But James Dobson is another right winger who doesn't give one good goddamn about children once they're born. He's just fine with kids starving in the streets rather than give up one hard dollar to help them get a leg up.

Besides his obvious senility, he's a calculating political animal who doesn't deserve the title of Doctor or the designation of pastor. Over the past 20 years, he's been one of the worst influences on the country and our politics.

May he rot in the hell he made for himself.
