Lynn v. Sekulow

I’m glad that Michelle Obama wasn’t too offended, but I still think she had every right to be after Senator McCain’s “that one” comment.

Of course, the candidates should address both constitutional law and future Supreme Court nominees at the final debate next week.  I’ll bet, though, that neither one of us would want to stake the homestead on that happening.
On the other hand, I’d be happy to appear on your radio show to talk about this.
In fact, why not join me on my radio show as well?  We had CNN contributor Jeffrey Toobin on recently and he speculated that a John McCain presidency could lead to Senator Lindsey Graham being nominated to the Supreme Court.  Senator Graham would not be my choice.  I do remember being on ESPN with him a few days after the Supreme Court by a 6-3 vote held that a Texas high school could not hold a student election for a spot giving prayers before their football games.  He was then Congressman Graham.  He spent most of his time decrying the decision and telling people how to make an end run around the ruling for the next weekend.  I recall telling him that if he wanted people to evade the “no official prayer rule” he could encourage them to train parrots to say the Lord’s Prayer and have them let loose in the stadium.  However, I pointed out, it would be preferable to have legislators like himself affirm the integrity of our courts even if he disagreed with a particular decision.
If any of our readers would like to say hello to me, I’ll be preaching at Hope United Church of Christ in Allentown, Pennsylvania on Sunday.  And, no, I won’t be endorsing anybody from the pulpit.
