Now, don't force me to make you cry again...

How could you? I'm trying to do Frankie Howerd style blog-commenting now. Titter ye not.

I hate to tell you Mike that I know a few righteous (and righteous looking) Midwestern born-agains likely to intuitively make the association that appears to be at the heart of your comment - only without the irony.

Hermeneutic overdrive is the potentially calamitous Protestant phenotype of the natural and vital human ability to interpret the world. Unassuming atheists don't live in fear of Obama.

For myself, I don't see anything in Obama's gaze that I wouldn't have hoped would be visible in my own at that age.

But I never looked that cool in a hat.

No, no irony was present. It was a joke.
I have been to the Midwest, you know. The REAL Midwest. One of the Square States in the Middle.
