Byron York on Tom DeLay & Ronnie Earle on National Review Online: "On several occasions in the film, Earle engages in monologues on what he believes is the sinister effect of money in politics. 'The root of the evil of the corporate and large-monied interest domination of politics is money,' Earle says as he takes the filmmakers on a nighttime drive around Austin. 'This is in the Bible. This isn't rocket science. The root of all evil truly is money, especially in politics. People talk about how money is the mother's milk of politics. Well, it's the devil's brew. And what we've got to do, we've got to turn off the tap.'"
If you are going to quote the Bible, you should at least quote it right. There is no verse in the Bible that says, "Money is the root of all evil." What the Bible says is, "The love of money is the root of all evil" [1Timothy 6:10]. But I guess Earle reads the Bible the way he makes indictments: pick and choose and follow your political agenda. (sigh)
