What he said ... about what they said

This is reposting, in its entirety, of a short entry over at Demagogue:
By now, you are aware that the House of Representatives voted yesterday to block federal judges from issuing rulings that relate to the Pledge of Allegiance's phrase "under God." I found this paragraph from the AP story quite ironic:

"Supporters argued that the 'under God' phrase, added to the pledge in 1954, was intrinsic to the nation's heritage and traditions and must be shielded from unelected judges."

I find it interesting that a phrase that has existed for only 52 of our nation's 230 years can be called "intrinsic" to America's heritage.
