The American Idolizing of Politics

It's come to this: Nightly, the candidates' performances are judged by the same panel of experts. Daily, pollsters take the pulse of the public. The only thing that separates this campaign season from the popular reality show is that the four finalists never vary, and none is voted off until November 4. Oh, and no singing on the part of the contestants, although there is often a backup band.

For those of us unfamiliar with Sarah Palin's Pentecostal upbringing, I present the 16 fundamental truths of the Assemblies of God.

BTW, McCain was raised Episcopalian but now attends a Southern Baptist church.

"Raptures" as a verb -- that's a slippery slope if there ever was one!
