H/T Talking Points Memo. The Associated Press presents McCain a box of donuts while it can’t even get Senator Obama’s name correct; the same news organization that Republican wanne-be a respected pundit Michelle Malkin once descibed as “The Associated (with terrorists) Press.” So dawning our tin foil and using our crystal clear Conservative logic McCain is the presidential candidate that terrorists prefer 3 to 1 in taste tests.This race is all over anyway, Stephen Baldwin On Fox News: If Obama Wins, I’ll Leave The Country.

Jefferson Bible reveals Founding Father’s view of God, faith

Making good on a promise to a friend to summarize his views on Christianity, Thomas Jefferson set to work with scissors, snipping out every miracle and inconsistency he could find in the New Testament Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

Then, relying on a cut-and-paste technique, he reassembled the excerpts into what he believed was a more coherent narrative and pasted them onto blank paper — alongside translations in French, Greek and Latin.

History professor Lori Anne Ferrell asks, “Can you imagine the reaction if word got out that a president of the United States cut out Bible passages with scissors, glued them onto paper and said, ‘I only believe these parts?’ ” Since the flag lapel pin has become the modern litmus test for patriotism and some Americans have so tangled their strict dogma up with their politics, yes I can imagine the kind of treatment that Jefferson would get if he were alive today.
