Why are so many godmen in this country such out-of-control nuts? — Posted by whatever
"Reverend" Hagee says he was taken out of context.

Sure you were, out-of-control godman. (Who exactly "reveres" these "reverend" people, by the way?) And the Straight Talker reminds us that he didn't sit in John Hagee's pews for 20 years. What a circus.

Why won't you give John McCain full faith and credit? Isn't this what you wanted?

Sorry. Had to be said.

I'm trying to get my head around the NYT's recursive assessment of the situation:

John McCain needed to reach out to Jews (who BTW hate Hussein Obama) and evangelicals by reaching out to an evangelical Jew hater (who must love Israel because he's a dispensationalist). McCain dumping said Jew hater may piss off the evangelicals. Let's not talk about the Jews anymore, ok? REV WRIGHT REV WRIGHT REV WRIGHT may have something to do with all of this, says McCain.

I'm not sure I follow. I didn't really want anything, I just find the whole affair entertaining.

What makes this especially entertaining is that McCain knew enough about these televangelist clowns in 2000 to correctly label them "agents of intolerance" and so forth, now all of a sudden he's unfamiliar with Hagee and Parsley?

Maybe he's been doing less channel surfing lately, but they haven't changed any since 2000 (B.C.E.).

Horribly failed preemptive sarcasm.
