Tea Party Rep. Steven Palazzo sent every one of his fellow members of Congress a Bible last week, regardless of their individual religious affiliations. Along with each was a note, which read in part:
“On a daily basis, we contemplate policy decisions that impact America’s future. Our staffs provide us with policy memos, statistics, and recommendations that help us make informed decisions. However, I find that the best advice comes through meditating on God’s Word. Please find a copy of the Holy Bible to help guide you in your decision-making.”
See for yourself:
Notice that Palazzo is a member of the House Science, Space and Technology Committee.
That’s presented without comment because it’s really its own punchline.
