Is Carly Fiorina's giant cross a genuine show of faith or cynicism?


It was hard not to notice that Carly Fiorina was wearing a cross around her neck at the Republican debate last night. In fact, it was rather a large one. The question is, was this a genuine show of faith, or a feeble attempt at pandering?

In a 2010 interview it was reported that Carly was not exactly very religious.

Friends say she's a fair cook and has a nice touch on the piano. She was raised Episcopalian but is not a regular churchgoer. She does Jane Fonda-style aerobics, whether she's home or on the road.

Reaction on Twitter was rather critical:

HEY CARLY FIORINA, WHAT RELIGION ARE YOU I CAN'T TELL FROM THAT GIANT SHINY CROSS AROUND YOUR NECK

As @CarlyFiorina's number's go down her cross necklaces get bigger.

Do you think @CarlyFiorina wears that giant cross necklace everyday? #GOPDebate

Carly Fiorina's giant cross necklace is akin to a 2003 rapper's "bling" adorned in a trashy music video #Subtle #TheChristianVote #GOPDebate

One thing is clear: if the nation is ever attacked by vampires, Carly Fiorina's giant cross will keep us all safe.

I think Carly Fiorina should have worn a larger cross, I'm not sure I believe her commitment to Christianity. #GOPDebate

How does it work, Carly Fiorina? The bigger your cross the more Christian you are? You can see that thing from space. #GOPDebate

Ted Cruz is doing very well with evangelicals, especially in Iowa. But he doesn't wear large religious jewelry. How is he winning these voters over? I think it is because he talks about his faith often. He speaks about his values and beliefs, and from the way he talks people know it's from the heart. It's not what he's wearing but what's on the inside.

I think that Carly thinks she can shortcut all this with religious jewelry, and her particular use of the cross (not the cross itself) rings of superficiality and shallowness.

Trump alienates conservative base by calling Cruz "Unqualified" to be President


Donald Trump called Ted Cruz "unqualified" to be President. No, it wasn't because, like John McCain, Cruz was an American citizen born outside the US, as the tinfoil hat crowd insists disqualifies Cruz. Instead, it was because Trump alleges that Cruz acts like a "maniac" in the US Senate, in his often one-man effort to fight the GOP establishment.

Medicaid now paying to remove unwanted penises


What do you do if you're a poor man, and you want to remove your penis? If you're poor, you're barely making ends meet. You can't pay your rent, electricity, food bill, and still have enough money to get your penis removed. That's why the Obama administration is doing the right thing and having taxpayer funded medicare paying for penis extractions. The Times had a touching story about a gay AIDS infected man with a number of names: Jerome, Meeka, Kricket, and even "Thunderpussy", (who I will henceforth call "Mr. TP"), who desperately needed his penis removed in order convince himself that he is a woman.
