Faith-Based Politics

Of a different sort. This time we are to place our faith in George Bush:

During the February 27 edition of Fox News' Hannity & Colmes, in response to co-host Alan Colmes's statement that the public may not be getting the whole story regarding the port deal involving a company owned by the government of Dubai, a member state of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Fox News political analyst Dick Morris said that "this is one area where he [Bush] has earned the right to be taken on faith."

An interesting idea. Osama bin Laden is still free, we invaded (oops) a country that didn't harbor terrorists when we started the war, and the freight that goes into planes is still pretty much unscreened. Faith, of course, doesn't need external evidence to support it.

You know, these wingnuts have ruined the word "faith" for me.
