Glenn Beck thinks God gave him a flyover at his Beckstalnacht rally Saturday in Washington DC. With a flock of geese. Because Glenn Beck couldn’t get a military flyover. Or someone in uniform to present the flag, thank god/s: I think it was God’s flyover. It was not supposed to

Americans to some degree and particularly those on the Right are now beset by a true conundrum. Is Barack Obama a Christian or a Muslim? According to the latest Pew Research polling: “nearly one-in-five Americans (18%) now say Obama is a Muslim, up from 11% in March 2009.

However, he did offer renewed hope, for the first time in a while, that the bill could include a renewable energy standard, mandating a percentage of electricity to be generated from renewable sources.
You can parse this in such a way that it’s not totally ironclad, but Ben Rhodes, one of President Obama’s most senior advisers, told me that there’s not going to be a renegotiation of the Status of Forces Agreement with Iraq to keep U.S. troops there beyond 2011. Even if
