Jenny throws the (good) book at the Republitrons
Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm is taking flak from Republicans for remarks she made on a Michigan Public TV show:

"Off the Record" host Tim Skubick and Gov. Jennifer Granholm were talking about budget cuts when Skubick asked whether the governor thought it was "interesting" that some of the people calling for the cuts were "so-called Christians."

Granholm: "Yeah, I do and I'll tell you why. What I think is so interesting about this is that people come from very, very different places and yet we all want to do what is best for the state. Often those who cloak themselves in a cape of religiosity happen to be some who are the biggest cutters. Now, some of that can balance out. But when you get to cutting the services for the least of these -- in the 25th chapter of Matthew in the 37th verse, the Lord says, 'Whatsoever you do to the least of these, so also you do unto me,' -- that's when I question whether somebody is really living out the faith that they profess."
