David Harsanyi: “It’s Yahweh or the highway.”
President Bush used to get pilloried for exactly this kind of thing — and rightly, too, if you ask me. President Obama? Eh, not so much. What possibly could be the difference?
1. The obvious — he’s a liberal, the press is liberal, he can get away with more.
2. The slightly less obvious — Obama doesn’t really mean it, and the secular (if not actually agnostic) press knows he doesn’t really mean it, so he can get away with more.
Keep in mind, as as agnostic myself, I don’t really have a dog in this fight.
Also, Ed Driscoll and I will talk about just this — plus two all-new VodkaPundit Hare-Brained Schemes! — on tomorrow’s PJM Political.
