I’m wondering if the entire country will soon be channeling Joseph Smith’s supposed white horse prophecy. Rush Limbaugh led his show today by saying that “America is hanging by a thread.” Setting aside whether or not this is hyperbole (it certainly is), where did Limbaugh get that particular phrase? Is it possible he took it from Glenn Beck’s conversation with Orrin Hatch? The Elders of the Church sure are getting around a lot lately. Of course, the use of that particular phrase could be pure coincidence — it’s a pretty common image.
Anyway, now is the chance for the majority of Bloggernaclites to gloat about the passage of the health care bill. Meanwhile, the majority of Latter-day Saints will continue to oppose such measures. If you’re going to gloat, or even if you’re going to lament that America is hanging by a thread, please be nice. Your comments are hanging by a thread.
