LET'S SWAT THIS PEST ONE MORE TIME

Michael Newdow is at it again, not satisfied during the last go around that the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals did right by him. You may recall he sought unsuccessfully to block Bush from invoking God when he was sworn in as the 43rd president of the United States in 2001 and now he's taking another stab at precluding a minister handpicked by the president from invoking Jesus' name during the inaugural ceremony on January 20th. Newdow, of course, is the same guy who tried to have "under God" struck from the Pledge of Allegiance. Seems he's trying his damnest to impose his over-arching atheism on the nation. Wonder if early presidents had to fend off these kind of constitutional gadflies? Not likely. The country wasn't hellbent on any rush to secularism back then. Well, then, let's just get on with life and swat this pest yet another time. A Federal District Court ruling is expected today.
