I’d Like to Enter This into Evidence Your Honor

The Democratic party is presently flailing about with their allies in the MSM in an amusing attempt to understand where they went off the rails. Here’s an exhibit from one Wendy Smith, writing in the Seattle Post Intelligencer as part of her thesis that America has voted in “an extremist Christian regime:”

For months, Kerry has been conspicuously going to church all over the country and shooting ducks and geese like crazy in between — all in an effort to convince the people in the red states that he “gets them.”

It was all in vain. No amount of avian carcasses would have helped. Half the people in this country believe in a god who forbids stem cell research but seems to have forgotten his own First Commandment.

Huh? Here’s the First Commandment:

“I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself a graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them or serve them; for I the Lord your God am a jealous God” — Exodus 20:1-4a (RSV)

Maybe someone writing in a paper named “Intelligencer” should know enough to look it up. It’s a basic step in understanding which she seems to want:

I say it because we had better get a grip on what we are facing, in order to figure out how to save our country (and the poor, suffering rest of the world) from the crusade on which America is embarked.

Well, you could start by getting your facts straight.
