Huckleberries Online

Best of Huckleberries Online -- 12/12-16/2005

Huckleberries Online got in on the action last week when the ichthys hit the Washington State Democrats Web site fan. Ichthys? That’s what you call the metallic “Jesus fish” that’s clipped to some cars to designate the driver’s allegiance in today’s cultural struggle. Onward. Earlier this month, a Washington Demo with access to the party’s official site posted various car decals for sale along with an ichthys, replete with hell fire and the word “hypocrite” in its belly. No trouble deciphering the message there. Several blogs, including Huckleberries, snagged the link before wiser heads at Demo Central pulled it. Next thing you know, the R’s were making tea out of this tempest, and a Seattle radio station was crediting Huckleberries among others for catching the D’s dissing religious righties. Which prompted state Rep. Doug Erickson to demand an apology from Gov. Chris Gregoire on behalf of the Dems. Which prompted state Dem chief Paul Berendt to apologize on behalf of the state D’s. Which was all great fun for a blogger who calls Idaho home.
