Oh, God!

There will always be the true believers who would support President Bush no matter what. Imagine your own outrageous story, worthy of publication in The Globe or The Onion, about W and he would still get 31% approval rating. In Provo, Utah, which "may be the reddest city in the reddest of state," that's even more true.

Delia Randall, a 22-year-old mother from Provo says of W, "When I watch him, I see a man with his heart in the right place." W and his supporters talk about each other in terms of having good hearts. They never talk about their heads or what's in them. Randall added, "I like George Bush because he is God fearing, and that's how a lot of people in this area feel." God fearing with a good heart - two resume musts if you want to run the country. I found another God fearing man to run for office but he is currently unavailable. He's dinner.

A man shouting that God would keep him safe was mauled to death by a lioness in Kiev zoo after he crept into the animal's enclosure. "The man shouted 'God will save me, if he exists', lowered himself by a rope into the enclosure, took his shoes off and went up to the lions. A lioness went straight for him, knocked him down and severed his carotid artery." Tastes a lot like chicken I hear.

Now I know the God fearing man, now dinner, was from Russia and couldn't be president here, unless the Republicans pass the Arnold amendment to the constitution while they vote for the flag burning and gay marriage amendments, but I couldn't help use it to illustrate a point. That if you believe in God so much you irrationally risk and give up your life for your religious beliefs (sound familiar?) maybe I don't want you running things with your hand either a nuclear or suicide vest trigger.

Well, that answers the question as to who the 31 percent is.

“God fearing with a good heart - two resume musts if you want to run the country.”

This is the crux of the problem: we have a bunch of irrational people with the vote.

I like Dogs, they are mostly man-fearing and have good hearts.

I like the way these "sheep" so casually throw the term "freedom" around. There is no freedom in the People's Republic of Provo.

They've been so brainwashed by their insular culture they don't even realize they have no freedom.

All Utahns are not like these folks. Thank GOD!

I say we give as many of these God-fearing people the opportunity to prove or renew their faith in the face of mortal danger as possible. At least once a year on a grand scale, but better each Sunday, and televised.
