Those Wacky Conservatives

David Harsanyi, in an article over at Townhall today, writes in to complain about Obama bringing God into the Healthcare debate.
Yes, it's finally come to this. We've dragged the Almighty Lord into the debate. It's Yahweh or the highway.

This week, President Barack Obama claimed his version of health care reform is "a core ethical and moral obligation," beseeching religious leaders to promote his government-run scheme.

. . . On Team Righteous, we have those who meet their moral obligations; on the other squad, we must have the minions of Beelzebub -- by which, of course, we mean profit-driven, child-killing, mob-inciting insurance companies.
Hilarious. Of course Conservatives have, for years and years, been telling us all that Conservatism and Christianity are synonymous. They have also, regularly and laughably, told us that Liberals are opposed to God. Complaining about dragging God into it at this point seems hilarious (which is presumably why Harsanyi is writing this article, and not the dozens of commentators who have invoked God so regularly over the years.
