Calls for comment by the all-powerful, all-knowing deity went unreturned…again
This should probably be a campaign issue for people who don’t have really deep thoughts:
Rep. Jim McDermott, a Washington Democrat who criticized President Bush while visiting Baghdad, omitted the words “under God” as he led the House in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance this week.
McDermott, of Seattle, was one of seven lawmakers who voted against a House resolution last year condemning a federal appeals court ruling that reciting the pledge in public schools is unconstitutional because of its reference to God.
Rep. Pete Sessions, R-Texas, accused McDermott of “embarrassing the House and disparaging the majority of Americans who share the values expressed in the pledge.”
The “disparaged” are expected to begin physical therapy and begin throwing on the sidelines within the next three weeks.
God willing, of course….
