You want to support the “Under God” candidate.
You want to support the “Under God” candidate. (Uh-oh, Fred, better keep working that “I’m like Reagan, who didn’t go to church because he saw God while riding his horse at his ranch” line.) Mike Huckabee has been doing well of late touting his title as Rev. as much as Gov. But are you ready to go from John Q. Public to John Q. the Baptist? Mitt Romney held a Kennedy-esque press conference to explain that Jesus is No. 1 on his prayer speed dial, even if some Mormons have him a little further down. But Mitt has asserted he does not approve of Kennedy’s de facto polygamy (read: serial adultery). Then there’s Obama, who has stressed that he has no past connection to a madrasah. Hillary’s team must have misread his third-grade report on muslin. In other words, everyone’s putting a hand on the Bible to be sworn in. Let’s move on.
