For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. ---Ephesians 6:12

"The age of casual Catholicism is over; the age of heroic Catholicism has begun. We can no longer be Catholics by accident, but instead must be Catholics by CONVICTION." ---Fr. Terrence Henry TOR, Franciscan University of Steubenville

Rush Limbaugh On Thursday Debate

I have never heard Rush Limbaugh get so excited about a presidential candidate so early in a primary. For a man who usually never takes sides until the winning Republican candidate is chosen, Rush seems to be showing his hand early in an effort to keep the only true conservative candidate (Fred Thompson) in the competitive mix.

After Thursdays wonderful debate performance, Senator Thompson has begun to surge in the Rasmussen national poll from 11% to 13% on Friday. There have been no polls taken for South Carolina since Wednesday, but I would expect Fred to have a bounce there. Although his numbers have gone down in SC in recent months, his favorability rating in that state has hung around 72%, the highest of the Republican candidates. And 66% of those already intending to vote for Fred claim to be certain of their choice, an indication of solid support.
