Actually it's a little more than that. For the first time in a long time, the President of the United States has had basically the same reaction: Yawn.
While he can't quite come out and say that the whole concept is bogus ... yet, Barack Obama has chosen to downplay the whole thing. He did issue the required proclamation, but he didn't have that parade of wingnut jesus freaks swarming over the offal office that we've gotten used to.
Which is good news for the rest of us. While I wish there weren't any such thing as a National Day of Prayer, I guess the best we can hope for is that it is downplayed by the president.
At least that's so in comparison to the disgusting display of sucking-up that Baby Doc did to the Religious Right during his entire two terms.
