Not enough Christians

Like me, I'm sure you're tired of all those Buddhists and Hindus controlling the dialogue in Washington, D.C. What about us Christians? Why are we always left out?

I don't think most Americans are turned off by people of faith. I think they're turned off by people who are phony," Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said to a small group before his talk. The Republican presidential candidate added that Christianity is not represented "nearly enough" in Washington.

Ya, James Dobson never seems to get his phone calls returned. I guess I was under the mistaken impression that the president, Speaker of the House and Senate Majority Leader were all born-agains. Which is fine. But Republicans continue to have trouble separating faith and politics.

Like Hank Hill said about Chirstian rock: "Can't you see you're not making Christianity better, you're just making rock n' roll worse." Same goes for politics.

Huckabee may not know Hank, but he is familiar with Mike Judge's previous work: "There are many Americans who are spiritually disconnected, culturally lost," the governor said at the event hosted by the Center for Reclaiming America for Christ. "Most of us in this room truly believe that America was better off when it was more about 'Leave it to Beaver' than 'Beavis and Butthead.'"

Somebody get this guy a calendar.
