Roger Simon explains why Howard Dean slipped up, and said the Book of Job is in the New Testament:
Why? It couldn’t be more obvious. Because he is not religious at all and part of him felt compelled to reveal the truth.
There is nothing wrong with not being religious, of course. I’m not and I readily admit it, but Dean, increasingly the hack politician, wants to convince us he’s something he’s not. I would prefer an honest agnostic (no surprise). Or a Zoroastrian. Or anything. (Well, not a Wahhabi). But not a fraud.
