    "Make no mistake about it, they start with Republican Party policy and work backwards."

    Dead on, Elrod.  

    I heard a guy call Ed Schultz's radio program today, and at first I thought it was an over-the-top parody.  He said point-blank that he was a follower of Pat Roberts, and their RELIGIOUS BELIEF is that God is working through George W. Bush as his chosen one, and that because Bush is representing God, that there's no use resisting or even saying anything in opposition.  

    And because Bush is God's chosen one, he continued, Bush is RIGHT on Iraq, and John Roberts WILL be confirmed to "set things right."

    Whether this guy was completely deluded, or completely cynical, or some combination thereof, he has conflated Republicanism into a RELIGION -- one which has nothing to do with the teachings of Jesus Christ.
