Speaking of hypocrites...

Dean, who was starting to look like the sane one, has changed tactics to fight Bush on Bush's own territory, which is the same as saying he has become politically irrelevant. It is a problem that the percentage of Americans who want a devout religious president is significantly higher than the percentage of Americans who would adopt a personal philosophy that makes them better people. We want the packaging, the actual content isn't so important.

Presidential contender Howard B. Dean, who has said little about religion while campaigning except to emphasize the separation of church and state, described himself in an interview with the Globe as a committed believer in Jesus Christ and said he expects to increasingly include references to Jesus and God in his speeches as he stumps in the South.

Good luck... he who tries to defeat Bush in the 'spineless hypocrite' arena stands no chance of winning.
