Welcome to the 21st century.

Insanity spoken as casually as if he was ordering a coffee.

“No, no, no! That’s not what my church says! That’s just silly! We believe that god is going to come down from the sky and rule from Missouri!”

And yet this man, this pious, shamelessly dishonest, heartless man is still in the running for the most powerful office on earth. And the sad thing is that the crazy beliefs help him, and get others to gloss over the incompetence of not knowing where Iran is on a map, of fake tanning to pander to Latinos, or of picking a VP candidate who doesn’t mind washing clean dishes. The lunacy doesn’t drive nails into his political coffin, it extracts them.

Welcome to the 21st century.

    Hey, I looked into my some stones I stuck in my Ranger’s cap, and God spoke to me. He said that Joe Smith was full of shit!

    Now listen, just because the stone in the hat thing didn’t work when Joseph was a ‘treasure hunter’ is no reason to imply it is not a valid method for creating the foundational documents of a religion; a religion that we should respect.

      Well, I guess pulling religion out of a hat is a step up from where religion is normally pulled out of.

          And that’s why I don’t get paid to write.

    You know what ticks me of? At about 3:45 he says, “I’m not running as a Mormon.” This after talking about how serious his (Mormon) beliefs are etc etc. Really? Then what are you running as, a Republican? Isn’t there more to you than that? Oh, wait ….

    • JohnH

      He means that he isn’t running to implement Mormon beliefs as the law of the land.

    To be fair, his beliefs aren’t really any sillier than Obama’s. He’s just more obvious about it.
