Democrats v. Catholics

Markos Moulitsas Zuniga writes "The gloves are coming off in Lousiani" in response to this weird, anti-Catholic advertisement put out by the Lousiani State Democratic Party



Not stopping there, he posted a bizarre pueudo-summary of an article previously written by Jindal for the New Oxford Review.

Much of the nonsense about the relationship between Church and State comes from the late 19th century, when anti-immigrant nativists targeted Catholics (Irish, Italians, Poles, etc.) as un-American and un-Christian. It's no surprising that Louisiana's Democratic Party, facing a second-generation American and first-generation Catholic, decided to play the faith card again.

So much for "Rum, Romanism and Rebellion".
