Religion is horrible for politics and government policy, but it has been the inspiration for a lot of great music and art. That’s because religion appeals to a person’s emotions, as does good art. Conservative politics also appeal to people’s emotions, but for the wrong reasons. While people like Herman Cain, Rick Perry, George W. Bush, Michelle Bachmann, and the rest of the nut jobs provide fodder for comedians and are a source of entertainment, when they get elected, it’s not so funny. Hitler was also a laughing stock until he got into power.
