God Bless (Middle) America

‘AMERICA is a country set up by religious nutcases for religious nutcases – and for another four years it will be governed by a religious nutcase.

‘Take that, Dale Winton!’

While most of the rest of the world casts their vote (if indeed they have a vote) on issues of personal security and prosperity, Americans’ primary concern is “moral values”.

According to the Guardian, 22% of the electorate put “moral values” ahead of the economy (19%), terrorism (19%), Iraq (15%) and whether to stop giving bears pizza (0%) as the most important issue when casting their vote.

It is a moot point whether the whole issue of bears and pizza is a moral one, but in this context morality means guns (the right to shoot ‘em), gays (the right to shoot ‘em) and God.

And the fact that for the majority of Americans what happens in this life is not nearly as important as what happens in the next life.

As long as there’s a McDonald’s in Heaven and eternity is one long “queer shoot”, Middle America is happy…’
