A group prayer photo and an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network? On the same day? The day after your namesake shows he's truly a chip off the old arrogant-and-stupid block? Wow, Prez Little Hands, you really do think we're idiots. Just to be clear: your hardcore base is gullible and stupid. The rest of us are not. I hope God's discerning enough to look at your track record and say, "Nah, not you."

O Great Spirit of our Ancestors, I raise my pipe to you.
To your messengers the four winds,
and to Mother Earth who provides for your children.
Give us the wisdom to teach our children to love, to respect,
and to be kind to each other so that they may grow with peace in mind.
Let us learn to share all the good things you provide for us on this Earth.
