This had to be the most aggravating question during the Dartmouth debate, both in its implication and in sheer unconstitutional glory.  Moderator Tim Russert asks the Democratic presidential contenders to name their favorite Bible verse.

Um, Tim, are you trying to say that Democrats need to prove their faith?  Nice Republican framing there.  And on whole other level, are you confirming the mindset that only practicing Christians should be eligible for the presidency?  What if there was a Jew, Buddhist or a *gasp* atheist on that stage?  Would that question be considered appropriate then?

Can you help us out?
