Sometimes a Bookcase is Just a Bookcase

It’s amazing how the media is focused on the subliminal cross found in the bookcase behind Mike Huckabee in his Christmas greeting commercial.

Folks, getting your undies in a knot over whether the bookcase was filmed with a deliberate attempt to imply a cross is a waste of time when instead you can focus on what the candidate SAID! “What really matters is the celebration of the birth of Christ.” Holy cow! With that one statement, he just dissed Jews, Muslims, Atheists, Agnostics, Buddhists and a host of other non-Christians.

We need to put the ridiculous conversations aside (is the bookcase photographed to look like a cross?, was Barack ambitious in Kindergarten?) and closely examine what these folks are saying. There was nothing subliminal about Huckabee’s bible thumping rhetoric. Let’s wake up and smell the coffee folks. At the rate things are going, one day we will wake up to find White House press conferences resembling prayer meetings.

I’m not ready to sign up for that. Are you?

Respectfully,
Rutherford
