Fake Scottish People

The Whig tradition is associated with three things. One is a respect for capitalism--the lending of money at interest. Second is what is known as a "projecting spirit"--the willingness to start new projects and businesses. Third is the Presbyterian faith. Many (though not all) Whigs were low-church protestants such as those of Scotland. Therefore, by the logic of the NAACP, the people such as Rachel Maddow who are latter day Tories are fake Scottish people.

On an entirely unrelated note, the Catholic Church is pressing for the release of prisoners associated with Chile's human rights abuses under General Pinochet for "humanitarian" reasons. This melds nicely with the intercession Estase heard at Mass this morning calling for "banishing the death penalty." It is really too bad that the Catholic Church picks such execrable people to want to show mercy towards.
