  1. Love the TX Independent piece. Thank heavens for FFRF. Oh, and loved Perry's statement to his fellow "Christ lovers." -- "This is a diverse group." (Yeah, right.)

  2. Keep up the great work you're doing here, Ahab!

  3. Wise Fool -- Thanks! Welcome to the blog.

  4. "The gubernatorial office, contrary to Gov. Perry’s ambitions, is not a ministerial pulpit. He was elected governor, not pastor-in-chief."

    It's not a subtle distinction. You would think even Perry could get it.

  5. Bachmann is one scary piece of work...

  6. Knatolee -- Thanks for the Guardian link!
