"I'll make him an offer he can't refuse"

I couldn't help but think of that quote from the Godfather as I watched an attractive blonde woman on CSPAN explain how her new political group was going to work. They call themselves the Godless Americans Political Action Committee or GAMPAC.'s a bunch of atheists who want to demonstrate the clout of nonbelievers to politicians. Here's the catch though. They know that politicians want nothing to do with them, so to get their attention they're going to threaten to endorse them.

It's true. I swear.

They're off to a slow start. So far they've gotten one contribution. A thousand bucks from a guy in Massachusetts.

It looks like their cause could use a few more believers.

Oh. Nevermind.
