A Thought About the Debate

We watched the debate as closely as our individual levels of nausea would allow. My take-away is this: if we were living in Old Testament times, I'd expect Ms. Clinton to be struck by lightning ... or at the very least, turned into a pillar of salt.

Just my opinion, folks; as always, your mileage may vary.

New Testament.
I've always thought it unfair that Obama isn't consumed by worms when aggrandizing himself.

Rev. Paul said...

Ed - you're referring to Acts 12:21-23 ("And upon a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his throne, and made an oration unto them. And the people gave a shout, saying, It is the voice of a god, and not of a man. And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the glory: and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost.") I've often used that comparison, myself.

You guys beat me, dagnabbit! Well, the early bird gets the worm. Amirite?

Rev. Paul said...

Apparently so, at least this time.

I don't watch because I wouldn't be able to hear over my own stream of invective. But I do keep hoping that the next day I'll see that she's exploded into fire and as she was consumed a pair of goat hooves were glimpsed...

PH, there were carefully-chosen expletives used here, as well. But I like the way you think. ;^)

Couldn't watch it.

I was afraid I'd smash the TV set I spent a week fixing last year.....

Rev. Paul said...

To be honest, Jim, I only listened to most of it. I was in the adjoining room, listening to my wife & younger daughter doing most of the yelling.
