But this comment from Corker in the Kingsport-Times News report did get my attention:
"The FEC (Federal Election Commission) makes you say that thing ÂI'm Bob Corker, and I approved this message.'" Corker told Republicans. "In fact what I'm hearing all across the state of Tennessee is that parents and grandparents tell me they will ask Johnny or Sally or whoever the young person is to say the blessing. They will say ÂPlease bless this food. Please bless our family. Please keep us safe and secure. (Then they will say) I'm Bob Corker, and I approved this message.'"
Perhaps the kids have a better handle on government and religion than given credit for.
And as Tom Humphrey noted, Corker says he's been praying a lot.
"Corker also stopped in Wilson County, just east of Nashville, to support an elementary school that faces a lawsuit for allowing a group called Praying Parents to meet there.
"I think any school would be so pleased to have parents who gather once a month - not in the presence of students - praying to give the faculty and students strength and guidance," Corker said.
"We all know the strength that comes from prayer; I pray 10-12 times a day on the campaign trail," Corker said.
I suppose it's time to tweak to the old adage - "There are no atheists in voting booths".
