I was glad to get a humorous reply. Afraid that everybody was taking the whole thing too seriously and I might have made people mad. I'm a serious, practicing Catholic which means, to me, that I know that I'm not a very good person so I can't get too self-righteous. I believe the best response to silly articles like the one at the top of this thread is to make jokes about it. Kinda like Reagan and GW Bush have succeeded in taking the media's nonsensical criticisms of them amd making better jokes out of them and telling them FIRST.

Machiavelli said something like, "A public man can be corrupt, incompetent, cruel, vindictive, vacillating, self-seeking, weak, and stupid, and yet attain to the highest honours in the state; but if he is ridiculous, he is undone."

More and more, the Left (including the MSM) is approaching self-parody. The more that they are held up to ridicule, the less power they will wield. And if that means that I get a few yuks along the way, that's just a lagniappe.
