You have a new job as a publicist, I think.

Funny you should say that! Last night I dreamed I was doing a Max Clifford for President Palin on her first visit to these shores. For a start, I told her that British pitbulls don't wear lipstick - it would be like cross-dressing for them. At that point, God instructed her to fire me.

Long live the next President-elect of the US, whichever Obama or McCain, because there is nothing more fanatic than a priestess. The lesser of two evils, because Washington seems to be bound to become the second Vatican State in the world, or should I say the third Church cradle?

Yes, it's increasingly looking as if much of this century is going to see a re-run of the Crusades.

Heaven help us all!

Enlighten up you guys.
You are giving even Postmodern irony a bit of humour back.

There won't be much postmodernism around when this preneanderthal lady is installed in the White House.

Sounds a bit like an Adam and Eve story to me.

"Pray for our military men and women who are striving to do what is right also for this country; that our leaders, our national leaders, are sending them out for a task that is from God. That is what we have to make sure that we are praying for, that there is a plan and that plan is God's plan." the Alaska Governoress is quoted as saying.

Examine the syntax closely:

"...[W]e are praying...that there is a plan and [that] that plan is God's...."

In other words, psychologically, the latent doubt is actually very close to the surface. A typical reaction formation then is to act frantically to 'make it so'. In that internal conflict, then, lies the danger, namely /doubt/.
