I have no quibble with others' religious beliefs. Those who choose to accept Eben Alexander's interpretation of his experiences are welcome to do so, as far as I'm concerned. There is nothing scientific about Alexander's claims or his"proof."
I take issue with the idea America is a center-right country when Bush initially sold himself as a centrist, failed to earn a clear mandate in '04, and then lost the last mid-term to the Democrats. More concerning are Newsweek's visual politics, however.
