Solomon's Choice

The Republican Party has rewritten the biblical story about Solomon and the two women who claimed the same baby. In the original story, Solomon proposes to cut the baby in half. One woman agrees, so he knows the other one is the real mother and gives the baby to her.

But that's so old fashioned. In the Republican rewrite, Solomon gives the baby to the woman who's willing to have it cut in half, because he respects her thuggishness and knows the other woman isn't man enough to deserve the baby. So to speak.

I look forward to the Republican's rewriting of other Bible stories.

Of course they've already revised Christ's tale of the Good Samaritan....
