5 years ago: Saddleback

John McCain went to Rick Warren’s Saddleback Church to try to get white evangelical voters to like him; Barack Obama went to Saddleback to show white evangelical voters that he liked them. I think they both succeeded. As such, I think McCain achieved something easy and Obama achieved something important.

Rusty Houser hated women. He learned that at church.
Flying blind and looking for any sign of light
Something happened and now I know
Count your ribs and say your prayers and go to sleep
