- Of ex-Senator/TV actor/radio newsreader/possible GOP presidential candidate Fred Thompson: "I don't think he's a Christian."
- Of ex-Speaker of the House/political pundit/serial adulterer/possible GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich: "the brightest guy out there" and "the most articulate politician on the scene today."
In response, we ask the following:
- Of Dr. Dobson: please, please, please stick to what you know (i.e. the ideas that made Dare to Discipline a hugely helpful book for parents of young children) and get out of the political arena where your incompetence seems to know no bounds.* Granted that your remarks were prefaced with the caveat that you aren't endorsing anyone and that you said nothing about Gingrich's faith per se, your ability to sound ridiculously inconsistent on these matters is obvious to everyone but, apparently, yourself.
- Of evangelicals: please, please, please don't listen to Dr. Dobson on any subject except those that he knows, excluding especially politics. See the paragraph above for our reasoning on this subject.
*We also ask Dobson to stay out of discussion of Bible translation, but that's another subject.
