Governor hailed as God's instrument

Someone alert TheocracyWatch.

At an inaugural prayer service, one state's governor was compared to various biblical figures by ministers who also claimed the governor may be "God's instrument to help save the state from unemployment, poorly funded schools and other evils."

The governor said it was important to set this upcoming term on "a spiritual foundation" and was anointed with oil at the end of ceremony.

You probably won't hear the leftwing blogs raving out this religious ceremony though because the governor in question is Michigan's governor, Jennifer Granholm, who happens to be a Democrat.

Next time you see someone commenting on how a certain Republican politician is too coozy with religious groups or how churches might be going over the line with their characterizations of certain politicians, just remember it happens on both sides of the political aisle.
