If he didn't go to church today, he should be impeached.

I think others have said this before, but who cares whether or not he went to church today.

Me neither. That huge ocean and sandy shore would be all I'd need to be reminded of a higher power.

When you're the first president in memory not to do something, it's news.

Since when is the President's job restricted by normal business hours? His job doesn't involve shopping, you know. The President works everyday; presidential 'vacations' aren't vacations in the way ordinary American's think of them, they are truly working vacations. He will have had national security briefings today, he'll have been in contact with congressmen, etc. He's running the most powerful, wealthiest country on Earth, not a local Village Pantry.

What's so funny, is that the right wing religious zealots would indeed try if they had control.

I think Meson's point is that this is trivial, it's not something that is truly important, it is something to distract us from those issues which actually are important. The media in the US has a depressing tendency to focus on and trivial crap like this and make a big deal out of it when they shouldn't. There are so many things going on in the world that should get covered in the media, but don't because things like this are easier to talk about and to make into a big hoopla. It's ridiculous and, in some ways, it's damaging.
