    HooRah for Dennis Miller!!

    He said recently on his show, regarding
    the judges who declared the Pledge of Allegiance unconstitutional:


    "So, Your Honor, the Pledge is unconstitutional because it says
    'Under God'. Guess that means when you were sworn in with your hand
    on a Bible, and at the end of your oath repeated, 'So Help Me God' that
    makes your job unconstitutional, therefore you have no job, which means your
    ruling doesn't mean s---."

    Here's the article I mentioned earlier...

    Girl at center of pledge fight is not an atheist
    Father who filed suit is in custody battle with girl’s mother.
    By DAVID KRAVETS
    Associated Press Writer

    SAN FRANCISCO — The 8-year-old girl whose father successfully sued to have the Pledge of Allegiance declared unconstitutional has no problem with reciting the pledge at school, her mother said Thursday.

    “I was concerned that the American public would be led to believe that my daughter is an atheist or that she has been harmed by reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, including the words ’one nation under God,”’ Sandra Banning said in a statement. “We are practicing Christians and are active in our church.”

    Banning never married Michael Newdow, the third-grader’s father and the atheist behind the pledge lawsuit. She has full custody of the girl, which Newdow is challenging in court.

    It was Banning’s first public comment since the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals agreed with Newdow that the words “under God,” inserted by Congress in 1954, make the pledge an unconstitutional endorsement of religion. The ruling has been put on hold pending appeals.

    Banning, who has hired lawyers in part to explore intervening in the case, said she hopes her efforts will lead to a reversal of the ruling. She also said her daughter “expressed sadness” after the ruling.

    In his lawsuit, Newdow argued that his daughter was “injured” by being forced to listen to others recite the pledge at the Elk Grove Unified School District.

    He said Thursday that he has the right to determine how she is raised.

    “I have a right to send my child to a public school without the government inculcating any religious beliefs,” he said.

    Newdow also said that taking an 8-year-old to church doesn’t mean the girl is choosing to be religious — and at any rate, it doesn’t matter what the child believes.

    “The main thrust of this case is not my daughter, it’s me,” he said.

    Some legal experts said the mother’s revelation that the girl herself willingly recites the pledge in class could cast doubts on the legitimacy of the case.
