MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Democratic Attorney General candidate
James Anderson says he was joking when he said he didn't understand how a person can say they are both a Christian and a Republican.

But the remark made Sept. 14 in a speech to Cherokee County
Democrats has stirred the ire of state Republican officials.

They say it was judgmental and in bad taste.

Alabama Republican Party chairman Mike Hubbard said Thursday
that Anderson shouldn't question people's faith.

Anderson said he was trying to make a point, in a humorous
fashion, that a person's faith is not determined by whether he or
she is a Democrat or a Republican.

    Ive often wondered how they can claim to be democrats and human. I also wonder how much Uncle Milton has promised this clown if he gets elected and turns a blind eye.
