As we age, many of us examine our belief systems. Herewith, my keystones:
Ken Starr has been hired as president of Baylor University. He will live out his days in Waco, Texas. OK. Now I believe in Hell.
The Wall Street Journal and the Washington Times, both very conservative publications, printed breath-taking pieces exposing Republican house and senate members as hypocrites for voting against the stimulus bill – and then trying to take credit for getting home state project money. Now I believe in miracles.
Dick Cheney goes on national TV again to claim the Obama administration is soft on terror. Now I believe in Ground Hog Day.
Sarah Palin continues to bash Rahm Emanuel and Fox’s Family Guy cartoon show for using the r-word. You go, girl. Seriously. But she loses all credibility when she lets Rush Limbaugh use the r-word repeatedly because it is “satire.” Now I believe in Steven Colbert. Look it up.
The Tea Party tries to convince us they are mainstream despite their birthers, truthers, John Birchers, etc. I believe one-third of Americans are nuts. Too much gluten?
The majority of Americans don’t think the president deserves a second term. I don’t believe how quickly Obama lost support.
