One election thought, and one only

Look, for a variety of reasons, I’m not voting tomorrow. This is not a political blog, so I don’t want to go into detail why, but I have one thought before this time tomorrow night, when it will be all over except for the suing —

I’ve never given the Jeremiah Wright flap any particular currency, and I still don’t. I don’t want to get derailed by that either, I just want to make this particular observation: what does it say about us that we can so easily accept the idea that somebody went to a particular church for years and years and years and didn’t pay any attention to the sermons?

Just a thought. Vote, pray, or both.
