First there was some yahoo on the Right telling people to pray that Barack Obama’s outdoor nomination acceptance speech would be rained out. Not to be outdone, and maintaining the balance of lunacy in the universe, the Left has its own yahoo saying that hurricane Gustav is proof of God’s existence because it will likely disrupt the Republican National Convention.
This is what happens when people conflate religion and partisan ideology with “politics.” Maybe we could try for a political discourse grounded in facts and reason. Just this once? Maybe?
