Fact of the Week

Fact of the Week

In a recent interview, President Bush could not recall any particular sermon by the Methodist minister whose church he attends. Bush did know that "he's just down to earth and doesn't try to get too fancy." Bear Left recalls, however, that during the 13 December 1999 Iowa Republican presidential debate, Bush let it be known that Jesus Christ was the political philosopher who most influenced him.

If you attended a weekly seminar on the teachings of your favorite political philosopher, wouldn't you remember just a bit about what the professor said?
