So, at both the liberal-elite-east-coast-ivory-tower colleges where I work, we received search letters for an administrative position at Patrick Henry College.
If the cover letter's mention of "timeless biblical values" (not to be confused with actual biblical values) hadn't clued me in that we were dealing with a rather, erm, different institution, the name rang a bell. I had seen Jon Stewart ("the man even lesbians want to shag") interviewing Hannah Rosin about her New Yorker piece on the College. Further googling also brought me this, including the following quote, with which I wholeheartedly agree:
Nancy Keenan, of the liberal campaign group People for the American Way, says: "The number of interns [from Patrick Henry] going into the White House scares me to death."
Yeah that, and the fact that they'll probably get away with the Rove thing, and the Roberts nomination, and...ugh. If moving to Canada is the new lesbianism, maybe I need to get right with celsius and "fibre." Hmmm..."Cate in Ottawa"...it has a certain ring to it. Not terribly likely, at this point, but a hell of a lot more likely than me moving to Virginia. As I like to say to door-to-door evangelicals, "sorry, pagan lesbian here, might want to try next door." Wrong number. Dude.
Knitting? Spinning? Just slow plugging away at Birch, FBS, Motley, and a wee bit more cashmere to ply with the leftovers on one of the bobbins. I started blogging my knitting because it kept me honest about finishing things, but I'm not sure how well that's working at the moment.
Have a great weekend everyone!
