Fundamentalist Statue Couture

And they say we have too many cultural differences!

Monica Goodling, who was granted partial immunity, will be testifying this week about the Justice Department firings. From Wikipedia:

"On May 7, 2007, National Journal''s "Inside Washington" column reported that it was Monica Goodling who ordered drapes to be placed over the partially nude Spirit of Justice statues during Ashcroft's tenure as Attorney General. At the time, the department spent $8,000 of taxpayers' money on blue drapes to hide the two giant, aluminum statues, according to spokesman Shane Hix."

One cover-up, after another.

Monica: You still thinking about taking The Fifth? After this week's testimony you may need to get that burkha out of storage.

Oh how I miss my C-Span.

Today from The Guardian:
Mermaid Statue Draped In Muslim Dress


  1. This is better than blowing'em up!

    Imagine if someday these people get their hands on Florence!!!

  2. Well as you can see, the Christian (American) Fundies covered the statues up with burkhas, while the (European) Muslim Fundies just used a scarf / abaya. I think that's pretty telling right there. Some people just can't deal with nudity, in any way shape or form.

  3. Burkha! The crudest form of

    Censorship! reb
