Part of Leonard Pierce's life is his lack of religion

Am I wrong to think our culture is kinda fucked when the President's way of assuring people about his Supreme Court nominee, of easing their minds, is to proudly note that she's a devout evangelical Christian? "Hey, don't worry, everybody! She's a religious nut!"

There's so many things to love about yesterday's hot Bushmiers action, like how the president said "she was a pioneer woman", and how he went to great pains to sop the right-wing by assuring people that religion is a big part of her life (in other words, she'll bring a religious worldview to the courts, folks, wink wink) while Scott McClellan went to great pains to sop the left-wing by assuring people that she recognizes faith has no role in her decision-making process (in other words, she won't be a religious activist in the courts, folks, wink wink). Ah, comedy.
