Rethuglican School Daze

From the Atlantic:

What began as idle musing by Michelle Malkin and a few other conservative bloggers has since hit Politico, the Associated Press, and the New York Times. Obama’s Sept. 8 speech to public school children, which will be broadcast online and on C-SPAN so classrooms can tune in, started out as about “the need to work hard and stay in school,” reported the AP. But now? Turns out that it’s a secret White House plot to “indoctrinate their children with socialist ideas,” as the Times described the fears of Obama’s critics. As several school districts vow to avoid the speech, a few questions. How did this happen?

Candor or Pander?

WASHINGTON (AFP) — US Republican presidential hopeful John McCain moved Sunday to calm controversy over an interview in which he said he would prefer to have the US president be Christian rather than Muslim.

“I just have to say in all candor that since this nation was founded primarily on Christian principles … personally, I prefer someone who I know who has a solid grounding in my faith,” said McCain, 72, in an interview posted Saturday on the faith and politics news site Beliefnet.

“I think the number one issue people should make [in the] selection of the president of the United States is, ‘Will this person carry on in the Judeo Christian principled tradition that has made this nation the greatest experiment in the history of mankind?'”

Oh, John the Baptist McCain, I almost (but not quite) feel sorry for you.
