Getting Your Priorities Straight

I'm the biggest right-wing nut around, but if I am about to meet the Almighty, the last thing I'd have on my mind would be a presidential endorsement.

Before he died Wednesday evening, death row inmate Dale Leo Bishop apologized to his victim's family, thanked America and urged people to vote for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.

"For those who oppose the death penalty and want to see it end, our best bet is to vote for Barack Obama because his supporters have been working behind the scenes to end this practice," Bishop said.

It would take an Obama Supreme Court Justice or two to make Mr. Bishop's wish come true. It would be easier for the Obamessiah to raise him from the dead.
