Now, that you are elected, America discovers Catholics vote for you, Mormons voted for you and despite the dreaded (and much ado about nothing) ‘Bradley effect’, Protestants and Evangelicals voted for you. Shhhhhh!

Good times, right? You owe them, President-elect Obama, right? So, the Sunday after Election Day and 1000s of straight-ticket voting conservatives jumped out of skyscraper windows everywhere, you would be in service thanking the Lawd, right?

Not so much, according to this AP story.

His name was invoked at church services nationwide on Sunday, but President-elect Obama didn’t attend any of them. He went to the gym instead.

Well, that’s unfortunate. While at least 54 percent of Americans were in church thanking God for bringing the BarackStar in town as his Democratic donkey trod over palm leaves, he was getting his game on to keep it real. That sounds like a new, contrived definition for “Entering his courts with praise.” I’m just sayin’.

Makes sense though seeing how the last time he was caught enjoying a church service some fool was asking God to “damn America” instead to bless it. Which begs the question? What kind of sour-sounding song would that be at baseball games? Brutal.
