The crazy seasonPosted Monday, September 20, 2010, at 8:07 PM
Call me a cynic, but these are not surprising at all.
Recent news in the political world has me snickering. I honestly can't help it.
I find most of it laughable.
Apparently, the First Family was spotted going to church this past weekend. A photo of the family found its way across the news wave.
Interestingly, many questioned our president's faith in recent weeks. In fact, a poll came out about two weeks ago that stated most Americans believed our president was of the Muslim faith.
This despite repeated claims -- from the president nonetheless -- that he is of the Christian faith.
Then this comes.
Monday evening, Glenn Beck suggested on his Fox News broadcast that the president was "motivated to go to church by the 8/28 rally."
The point has now been proven. No matter what this current president does, it will never be good enough.
I guess at this point, it should be noted that the following presidents had no affiliation to a church: Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Andrew Johnson, Ulysses Grant, Rutherford Hayes and Barack Obama.
Staying on the political landscape, talk show host Bill Maher recently unveiled 10-year-old footage of Christine O'Donnell, who won the Delaware Republican Senate Primary last week.
This footage showed O'Donnell in 1999 on Maher's show "Politically Incorrect," saying she had "dabbled in witchcraft, but had never joined a coven."
My immediate response to this is, who cares?
She won her primary, will face election in November for the possible chance to serve as a Senator for Delaware.
If voters have faith in her to serve them well, she'll win. If not, she won't.
Seems pretty simple to me.
This time of year is indeed, insane.
And think of this, there is still one full month and a handful of days of this insanity before elections.
