They Don't Call it The "White" House for Nothing

Bush at the NAACP Convention
God lost this time. I counted: Bush mentioned God only six times in his speech to the NAACP today. The winner was ‘faith’ — which got seven mentions, though if you count “The Creator” as God, well, then the Lord tied it.
Coming in right behind God and Faith, other big mentions in the First Home Boy’s rap included: The Voting Rights Act, his family’s “commitment to civil rights,” the “death tax,” rebuilding New Orleans and “public school choice” and “soft bigotry.”
As the philosopher Aretha Franklin once said, “Who’s zoomin’ who?”
Let’s take it one point at a time.
