Mr. Scheer,

Although your recent editorial was very naughty indeed, you are going to have to do alot worse than that to get excommunicated from the church of EmileZ.

You need not repent for your naughty remarks, and may continue to partake of my transubstantially divine comments, as I can see that there is in fact a rational argument for casting your ballot in favor of the one-who-cannot-be-named but is known to many as Mr. President and whose number is 44.

There is also a rational argument that can be made to vote for someone else instead, but in my opinion it matters very little either way.

What IS important is to have a healthy skepticism towards any utterances issued from the forked silver tounge of the candidate I mentioned above and to provide a sound critique of his policies, appointments, and approach to governance.
