The Pleasantville Posse vs Martin Luther King's Legacy

Let's just call them what they are - because when all the flags have been waved or draped and all the rhetoric parsed and pithed.

My Liberal Identity:

You are a Peace Patroller, also known as an anti-war liberal or neo-hippie. You believe in putting an end to American imperial conquest, stopping wars that have already been lost, and supporting our troops by bringing them home.

"Hallelujah anna Opus Dei to ya, DC.."

"Aderholt alone has accepted seven trips from the group in the past four years, at a total value of $62,000. In 2006, Aderholt accepted three fellowship-funded trips — to Kazakhstan, Sudan and Serbia — worth a total of about $28,000.

Other Members who have accepted trips from the Fellowship Foundation are Rep. Mike Doyle (D-Pa.), who also lives at the C Street house, and Republican Reps. Frank Wolf (Va.), Joe Pitts (Pa.) and John Carter (Texas), according to House records. Sens. John Ensign (R-Nev.) and Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) each also accepted one trip from the foundation. Both Senators have lived at the C Street house."
