Department of Duh

The headline for a Reuters story:
Santorum says Obama agenda not "based on bible"
Duh. I like the attitude of the White House response although it lacks an important component (see below):
"This is just the latest low in a Republican primary campaign that has been fueled by distortions, ugliness, and searing pessimism and negativity . . ." Ben LaBolt
They certainly deserve that. But he missed the gorilla in the room. LaBolt should have pointed out that our government's "agenda" not only isn't based on the bible but shouldn't be and couldn't be. On account of the, you know, Constitution. 

But no, everyone lets the religious nonsense slide on by. Nothing to see here. Move along.
