Margaret, I really thought Rick Perry would do so much better. It appears, however, that outside of Texas – the great state that gave us George W. Bush – Rick Perry can’t get above 10 percent. Worse yet, he can’t even get a little love from Jesus himself. Rick Perry was going to be the Tim Tebow of the Republican Primary only to be surprised that Jesus loves Tom Brady more than Tim Tebow. And then to throw salt in the wound, Rick has to find out that Christians gathered in his own backyard to determine that Jesus likes Rick Santorum more than Rick Perry. I hear, however, that the vote was close. I guess when it comes to impressing Jesus with how much you hate homosexuals and Planned Parenthood, the Santorum Rick just edges out the Perry Rick. But then Newt had to come along, a guy so religious that he’s been a Lutheran, a Southern Baptist and now a Catholic. I guess he lets his wives pick out his religion along with his ties. And if you are going to make this about Jesus then little things like the number of wives you divorced in a hospital bed becomes relevant.
If Santorum Rick would just step aside, Newt could surge ahead of Mitt. Or maybe it’s the other way around? I don’t know Margaret. What will Jesus do if he ends up with the Mormon or worse yet, the Libertarian. My head is spinning and Jesus must be exhausted.
The Morality Play happening within the Republican Party is just ridiculous. Personally, I don’t give a rat’s ass who is the most Christian or whose wife loves him more, and I certainly don’t care how much you hate the sin but love the sinner. Your morals mean squat to me because they seem to go away once elected. At this point, the Republicans shouldn’t care if their candidate is a Neo-Paganist as long as he can articulate how to create jobs, reduce poverty, fix our education system and leave the world with one less war not one more. Imagine how much more we could get done if politicians would just agree to disagree on gay marriage and abortion. Your church doesn’t want to marry two men… fine. My church is okay to marry two women… so be it. Your daughter doesn’t want to have an abortion… no problem. My daughter decides not to bring another child into the world… that’s between her and her doctor. When the hell did those two topics become of utmost importance in the political world?
Honestly, Margaret, when is the Republican Party going to pull its collective head out of its collective ass? When you mix religion and politics, nobody wins. Stick to mixing Gin and Tonic I say.
Let’s all have a drink because I’m pretty sure it’s not all going to end in South Carolina. Thanks for stopping by. I mean it. Really.
