    You might remember when Ross Douthat in 2008 wrote about watching Sarah Palin winking on tv and described that experience as “starbursts ricocheting around the living rooms of America” (and, one assumes, his pants and the carpet)? Well, it’s happening for him again: 
Ross Douthat wants to bear Tebow’s little Christian babies – “O ye of little faith. Did you think that the Lord God of Hosts, having raised Tebow up as a Gideon of the gridiron, would pass up the opportunity to put his faithful servant to the test? Did you think that the angelic screenwriters responsible for scripting last year’s succession of Tebow-related improbabilities had nodded off after the Broncos were dispatched in the A.F.C. playoffs? …No, this was where the Tebow story was always destined to end up. Denver was his Galilee; New York will be the Roman Colosseum. Or to be pop cultural rather than scriptural: Denver was District 12 in Suzanne Collins’s Panem, and the Meadowlands will be the Hunger Games arena.”
