Religion has role in presidential election—who knew?


From the Department of Unobservant Reporting, U.S. News & World Report shows just how out of touch they are with this story about religion and the presidential election:

Anybody who thought faith and the values voters wouldn’t play a big role in the next presidential election might be having second thoughts by now.

That is the first sentence, and it’s all I read. And all I will read. Any reporter who thinks I’m so stupid as to not have noticed that religion has been tantamount to both political pandering and liabilities—from Hillary Clinton to Mitt Romney to Mike Huckabee to John McCain to Barack Obama—well, they really aren’t worth reading.
