The Right Wing/Religious world was in full alert mode. It started with Rush Limbaugh announcing that President Obama had deleted the refernce to God when reciting the Gettysburg Address. The news spread like wildfire through the right wing media and the requisite expressions of outrage and calls by Tea Party Congressmen for impeachment went out. It confirmed the conservative narrative that Obama hated the country and was intent on making it an Islamic Caliphate.
Turns out the whole episode did confirm one narrative: that the right wing is populated with sub-cortical morons who reflexively react to meaningless stimulus. Limbaugh, the Grand Pubah of the Confederation of Idiots (to borrow a phrase), was demonstrating his cynical manipulation of ignorance for his commercial benefit. Most people on the right in my experience are extraordinarily ignorant of American History and generally not literate, so why would they know that more than one draft of the speech would exist, or that more than one version since Fox News was not there to report it?
It turns out that there were 5 versions of the speech, only 2 of which referred to God. President Obama was asked to read one version by the producer. It would be laughable, if not so such a sad reflection on so many Americans.
