A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

I love it: In a sick, schadenfraude kind of way. You see, Rep. "Baghdad" Jim McDermott led the House of Representatives in the Pledge of Allegiance the other day, and left out the words "under God." The video of the event shows McDermott taking a deep breath while the other representatives recite the words in dispute.

McDermott's excuse is that the words "under God," added in 1954, were not in the pledge when he first learned it in elementary school.

It's a fair claim, however it would be more believeable if it were anyone other than McDermott making the claim.

Of course, I knew of this other individual (who shall remain named Mr. Wonderful) who once was leading the Pledge of Allegiance and inadvertantly left out the word "indivisible."

He claimed, like McDermott, that the word was not in the Pledge when he first learned it in elementary school -- several years before the Civil War.
