Baptists & Albanians.
Unpopular Bush still a hit with Baptists

SAN ANTONIO, Texas (Reuters) - President George W. Bush may have low approval ratings overall, but he can still bring a crowd of Southern Baptists to their feet.

Conservative white evangelical Protestants remain his most loyal base -- a point driven home on Wednesday when he made a televised address to the annual meeting of the Southern Baptist Convention in San Antonio and received multiple standing ovations.

The ovations by the roughly 8,000 delegates in attendance stood in sharp contrast to his overall approval ratings which are consistently in the low- to mid-30 percent range in the face of the unpopular Iraq war.

Well I guess when you're brain dead you can safely play to others who are similarly wired.

Oy.

I think the almighty Commander Guy missed his true calling. The man would make a great televangelist. Given all the God talk he spouts, money he is able to raise, and laws he is willing to break he seems perfectly suited for the job.
