Jeanne at Body and Soul takes note of this article by Ayelish McGarvey in the American Prospect
wherein the arguement is made that though many in the mainstream left see Bush as too rigidly Christian, he is in fact simply an "amoral and irreligious man who has found posing as a Christian to be politically profitable." Occasionally I've felt this about him too, although I think it's more of an ambivelance about religiousity, because he really seems to dig the self-righteousness.
Christopher Hitchens says he's for Bush, albeit barely, whatever that means. I have wondered for some time why Hitchens is considered a liberal writer. Animus towards Kissinger can't be enough to qualify.
