If you saw the official Republican response to President Obama‘s State of the Union speech tonight, then you heard the pleasant-sounding Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) talk about her vision of America, her son with Down Syndrome, and her uplifting personal story. I thought the speech was pretty well done — heavy on emotion, light on substance, free of gaffes. It was kind of like what Republicans expected, but never got, out of Sarah Palin.
But the most interesting thing you may not know about Rodgers is that she attended Pensacola Christian College.
Why is that a big deal?
PCC may be the most fundamentalist Christian schools in the country, rivaling places like Patrick Henry College and Liberty University.
