Speaking in tongues

Re. Jim Ryun – erstwhile middle distance runner and occasional speaker in tongues – has an announcement!

No. It's our religious duty to pray. It's our patriotic duty to vote, to make our nation stronger, to enact policies that benefit as many people as possible. Engaging in petty symbolism is not patriotism, nor is it why anyone sent Jim Ryun to Congress. But other than some tariff relief for Payless Shoes and a stern defense of the indicted gentleman from Texas, that's all anyone gets out of him
