Rep. Wharton says being a Congressman is a full-time job these days; there would be no time for doing television comedies.

Update reading list

Funny to see a speck of Buddhist yellow in Georgia. This Congressman Hank Johnson was responsible for primarying Cynthia McKinney so he's an automatic HP.

Strange, I have him on the map as a Catholic. He's a Unitarian. Sorry, let me fix that. Thanks for letting me know.

Unitarians (there's only one) are pale yellow.

My CSPAN congressional directory says "Unitarian". Wikipedia says "Unitarian Universalist (Athiest)" So, we're both right.

Hank Johnson may be the biggest idiot ever elected to congress. He feared that Guam would capsize.

Those elected to Congress in '08. I can post a map of those elected in '06, but it's very similar to this one.

He's definitely up there with Michele Bachmann.

Change all Protestant colours to Republican colours, and all Catholic/Jewish/Buddhist colours to Democrat colours and you will see, roughly, an election map.

And minus black Protestants. And there are a non-negligible number of white Protestant Democrats (see Washington state, in particular) and Catholic Republicans.
