I do believe ...
You know I rarely make political comments here. It's not really what I'm about. But there are times the silliness just asks for a pin-prick.
Thus we have South Carolina's Legislature approving "I Believe" license plates with a picture of a cross on them (modeled after this one in Florida that didn't pass).
And then we have the obligatory lawsuit challenging them.
And then, on cue, we have the aggrieved lieutenant governor, Andre Bauer, who drafted the legislation: "For those who say this violates the Constitution by giving preference to Christianity, I think this lawsuit clearly discriminates against persons of faith." Uh huh.
In the spirit of ecumenism, and to try to settle this while capturing the true meaning of the sentiments being expressed, I'd like to propose a slight modification to the plates' wording:
I Believe ... Andre Bauer is running for higher office
There, now wasn't that easy?
