Properly inflated

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | Jan 08, 2004

Howard Dean says that his religious faith prompted him to support same-sex unions.

Of course, this is the guy who chose his religious faith on the basis of a dispute over a bicycle path. So a discussion on a bike path formed his faith, and his faith formed his views on same-sex unions.

Seems to me that, in order truly to plumb the depths of this intellect, we'll need to know what forms his views on bicycle paths.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Memo to Howard Dean: Both your tires are flat. You're riding on the rims. Such is the fate that befalls a man who's tires are puffed up with himself. Vae Victus.

    Actually Phil, it comes from the Bible translation Dean used which said quite clearly: "Make straight His bicycle paths..." Dean is not sure if that was in the Old or New Testament or the Apocr-, Apocryph-, er, those other Jewish books...

    Maybe Mr. Dean shares the religious faith of the good people of Sodom and Gomorrah.

    St. Paul had his Damascus Road. Dr. Dean had his Bicycle Path. Father George Rutler
