On the Road to 2008: God and the GOP

*

WWJD ? And The Ginger Man

As the presidential election campaigns heat up, the contenders are showing their flexibility and readiness to to be all things to all people. They want to win our hearts and minds and they stand ready to do anything, say anything.

Where the GOP candidates are concerned, God is an important card in their play book. Makes sense. George Bush's victories were to a large degree based on support from conservative Christian voters. The Christian right voters have lost some power but far from being a spent force. Looking at the stable of contenders one wonders -- would Jesus endorse any of them.

Enough about politicians. J.P. Donleavy's ribald classic The Ginger Man is a good one to take your mind off from the bloviating hypocrites.

"Mary Maloney's beautiful arse
Is a sweet apple of sin
Give me Mary's beautiful arse
And a full bottle of gin."
--The Ginger Man, J.P. Donleavy
