Look, I’ve Got No Quarrel With Bachmann’s Faith…

I’m glad of it.  Truly.  I wish every politician had deep, real, abiding, substantive faith.  I just don’t think she’s smart enough to be President.  That’s all.

The leader of the House’s Tea Party Caucus said conservatives have to stand against federal takeovers of U.S. industries, including the automotive, banking and insurance industries the government bailed out during the recession.  “And we can’t settle when it comes to America standing up for our greatest ally in the world, Israel,” Bachmann said.

Having faith may qualify you to be a good Christian, but it doesn’t make you a good politician.  I wish we lived in a world where it did.  But we don’t.  We don’t even live in the ‘best of all possible worlds’.  But being a Christian Zionist makes you a theological ignoramus.  And I just won’t vote for one of those.  Ever.  Besides, she’s absolutely deranged if she thinks Israel is an ally.  Allies help.  How has Israel helped us aside from not launching an attack on Iraq while we were preparing to invade to denude Saddam of all those WMD’s he had…

Bachmann is a good person (so far as that word can be used of any person).  But she’s not presidential.  Sorry.

Mind you, that’s not to say Obama is.  He lacks both faith and spine.  And there isn’t any other politician known to me who is suited for the office.

So I’ve given up hope that America has anyone worth electing.  Faithful or not.

    How about one of the New Atheists for President?

    Sam Harris would be great. Wait, he took too many drugs…of course, so did Obama. Then again, Harris really hates Muslims and we can’t have a Pres who would not go easy on Muslims.

    Or Hitchens? Oh, wait, he not a native born American, and he is a dead man walking anyway.

    O.K. Dawkins…darn, he’s not a native born American either.

    I know!

    [name deleted so as not to make my decent readers vomit]. The epitomy of atheists. Honest. Loyal. A man of real integrity.

    [though the pure sarcasm involved in mentioning such a lame dimwit in the same sentence as ‘honest’ and ‘integrity’ almost makes copious amounts of vomiting worth it]

    Who would be better?
