No Ben Affleck
I haven’t watched much of the Republican National Convention but the few times I’ve turned in; I’ve seen Stephen Baldwin lurking around. I suppose he is the Republican’s answer to Ben Affleck who was pretty high profile at the Democratic National Convention. Only problem is that Stephen is not as famous or as successful as Ben. More importantly, he’s not as articulate on political matters. Listening to him explain why he’s voting for President Bush was just painful. He kept saving he was voting for the person with the most faith — the person who is being led by God – the person who is the most vocal about their faith. No other issue mattered. Whatever! I suppose there are worse reasons to vote for someone. What annoys me most about the whole thing is the continued perception that just because you are vocal about your faith makes you a better Christian. This is flawed logic as I can think of so many people both public and private citizens who say one thing and do another. But hey, who am I to judge. More importantly, I suppose I should just be thankful that people are taking part in the political process.
