Mayor Rocky Anderson and a Theocracy

Mayor Anderson's latest email has received a fair amount of press coverage: Here at ( was first to publish the text of the email, two days ago) here at the Tribune, and here at the Deseret News. One part of his email stuck out for me: "Those who referred to my participation in the rally as "unpatriotic," "rude," or "inhospitable", or those who disparaged the thousands of good people who participated in the rally as "nutcakes," fail to distinguish between a theocracy and a democracy. President Bush works for us." A theocracy!? No one mentioned religion in this whole messy affair. Until now. Religion baiting. It's bad news but not a surprise

Sounds like he should fire his email writer.

Sorry to nitpick, especially since your site deals exclusively with local politics, but Anderson is not the first to compare this administation to a theocracy. In fact, it's been quite a common charge.
For several years.

Wether or not it's warranted; that's a matter of perspective.

Anyway, I know you've been in europe for a month, but try and keep up.
