From Doonesbury’s SAY WHAT?:

"To think that we can save the Constitution without God’s help when the government of the United States is corrupt is absurdity. We are in America’s second Revolutionary War to save our freedom, which we paid for with blood. We need God’s help and I’m not ashamed to ask for it."

— Idaho gubernatorial candidate Rex Rammel Is it irony that my first thought when I read something like this is "Jesus Fucking Christ?" Like the government is any more corrupt now that at anytime in the past 234 years? I would suggest that it is probably less corrupt (or on its way to being less corrupt) than it was during the Cheney/Halliburton reign. It is also safe to say that ‘God’ had significantly more influence in the Bush administration (weekly conference calls with Ted Haggard, anyone?) than in any other.
