The snappy comeback is an art form that I, and many others, excel at...about five minutes after we muddled through a remark. An example occurred to me after the recent Senate hearing on Office of Management and Budget nominee.

Senator Sanders, known as "Bernie" to all his loyal sycophants, disgraced himself in his interrogation of Russell Vought for a position at the OMB. Irrespective of the fact that a "religious test" is prohibited by the Constitution, the particular questions that the B man asked were spectacularly irrelevant to the position in question.

With that out of the way, I would like to propose an answer to Senator Sanders' question if Vought believed that all Muslims were "condemned" and if that made him "Islamaphobic."

"Senator, if you mean ‘condemned' as defined by adherents of Islam to mean, ‘Attacked, killed, and even annihilated,' then ‘No.' But if you mean ‘condemned' as Jesus taught, that they are separated from the Truth and we should attempt to bring them into touch with that Truth and lead them to repentance, ‘Yes.'"

And as for being Islamophobic because I disagree with their theology, then does that apply to you for opposing and disagreeing with Hillary, and now President Trump? Are you Hilophobic, Trumpophobic, or even Christian-ophobic because you disagree with my beliefs?

I am forced to agree with our Democratic friends that ol' Bern was not the man for the job.
