Imus in the Morning: Salvation Hour

like i have been doing lately, i turned on the TIVO of Imus this morning, only to hear newly-installed Newsweek Editor Jon Meacham rambling on and on about religion in American politics like a preacher with an itch... (Meacham's underlying message: the religious set is very thoughtful and non-offensive --Big Tent!--but the baby-killing secular crowd--including author Sam Harris-- are awful and say mean things)...i tell you, it was almost as nauseating as Imus' continued, tortured support for Rick Santorum... and don't even mention that sad and narrow David Brooks column in the Sunday Times Imus was touting (underlying message: Rick is the Senate's Mother Theresa)... funny, but i don't recall Mother Theresa having much to say about man-on-goat action or Lord of the Rings...
