Mr. Lott, your last paragraph brought this to mind. In the 1990 Texas gubernatorial race, Clayton Williams, the charming Republican “good ol’ boy” candidate (Ann Richards, professional lady Texan, was the Democrat “good ol’ girl” candidate), made one of his many memorable quotes to a group of reporters, which I believe he thought was off the record.p>Mr. Williams was not a very astute press handler. Talking about Texas weather, he likened the bad weather at the time to rape, and said, “as long as it’s inevitable, just relax and enjoy it.” Just your typical low brow humor from a typical cowboy, right? Well, he was castigated summarily in Texas newspapers for his insensitivity to women (he was running against one after all), which, among other things, cost him the race. Rape is still rape, a bad joke is still a bad joke, and bad legislation is still bad legislation, no matter how charming the perpetrator is in any of those cases. Perhaps, if you think of what Mr. Obama would be doing to the country in those terms, it will help you in your struggle. As far as hating the sin and loving the sinner goes, if Mr. Obama in due course, were to come to his senses, seek the repeal of said legislation, and ask the country for forgiveness, he would then have all the love I can muster for a Democrat, which admittedly, isn’t much, but as you say, he’s such a charming Democrat.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
