I had an oddly cheering experience today. I was driving along behind a pickup truck proudly flying two American flags (amen, brother) and got close enough to read the bumper stickers. They read, “Real Men Love Jesus,” “Half the Patients Die in an Abortion Clinic,” and “John Kerry, 2004.” Good for you, sir, I thought.
I’m a Bush man myself. I prefer his policies, respond to his character, and in any case don’t have reasons enough to cease being loyal (a quality sadly absent in liberal democracies). Still, I think all us politically-minded types could take a lesson from Samson. If he could find honey in a lion, why not in an ass?
