The price of putting "new people' in office

Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley apologized to those he may have offended with remarks that seemed to reject the notion of friendship with non-Christians.

As Surge Desk reported earlier, Bentley drew sharp criticism when he declared to an audience at a Baptist church shortly after being sworn into office Monday that "anybody here today who has not accepted Jesus Christ as their savior, I'm telling you, you're not my brother and you're not my sister, and I want to be your brother."

The more new and inexperienced people get elected to political office, the more politically incorrect and just plain stupid things they will say. The smart, well advised ones - - such as newly elected Florida governor Scott - - will limit press access until they get a grip on things.
