McCain clearly won, because the Jesus debate-watchers are idiots. He gave his canned stump speech, he made some good jokes, and Media Man will give him all the props. Obama was thoughtful and personal, and there is no place for that in today’s American politics.

It is very possible that we are fucked, as a country.

I’m going to try to make it simple: Faith doesn’t put food on the table, gas in your car, or cure your sick kid. Faith doesn’t start wars, nor does it end them, faith doesn’t create energy, and faith doesn’t help the needy. Faith, in fact, is for shit here in Reality Land, and though I have some faith of my own, I don’t believe it the basis for good public policy.

I’m nutty that way.

I’m watching the post Jesus-debate spin, and it is not even close about who “won.” McCain was a fucking genius, for sure. In “faith” matters, I suppose.

I have this freakishly weird passivity about a McCain victory. People deserve what they want. And sometimes things need to get worse before people pull their heads out of their asses and understand it.


I can’t deal in a 45% moron country, no matter what.

Update: Correcting a MAJOR error: Faith does, in fact, start wars. Lots of ’em. Sorry about that.
