Born Again AmericansSubmitted by Boscovius on Fri, 06/20/2008 - 18:56
As my wife and I were watching CNN this morning, the news report was showing Scott McClellan speaking to some house or senate panel regarding who said what and when regarding the issues uncovered in his tell-all book. My wife, who is rather new to politics, but a quick student, asked me if I knew who he was. I told her that Scott McClellan was a former Bush loyalist. I told her I didn't know enough about him to distinguish whether or not he was just a rat jumping off a sinking ship, or if his was a true change of heart and that he had decided to come forward to clear his conscience and do battle for the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
My wife asked me, "If he is one of the good guys, does that make him a born again American?"
I just thought that was too cute! And True! I can remember back to when I hadn't a care in the world. When I believed that everything the government did was for the good of the people. Then I learned better, and sought to educate myself and others to what is really going on in washington.
I guess that makes me a Born Again American too.
I've been looking for a good E-Bay opportunity. I'll be putting that on a T-Shirt right away!
