Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

Who Knew. . .

. . . that you’d get good political analysis from Howard Stern. Here he trips up voters by attributing McCain’s positions to Obama, and no one notices. . . or changes their vote. Truly cult-like.

Gerard Alexander remarked to me last night that, if four or five years ago, you had predicted that we’d soon see a presidential campaign suffused with self-conscious messianic fervor, you’d be certain that it would come from the religion-soaked Republican Party.

Your post reminded me of an Obama stump speech I heard on satellite radio (fox news) the other day. It was in Pennysylvania somewhere. Opening remarks: "What a beautiful day the Lord has made." Perfectly acceptable to me, and all who heard it, including the media. How would it have been received by the media if it had come from, say, Mike Huckabee or Mitt Romney?
