In God We Trust

"I don't see how we can have a separation of church and state in this government if you have to pass a religious test to get in this government. And I want to warn everyone in the press, and all the voters out there - if you demand expressions of religious faith from politicians, you are just begging to be lied to. They won't all lie to you - but a lot of them will. And it'll be the easiest lie they ever had to tell to get your votes. So, every day until the end of this campaign, I'll answer any question anyone has on government. But if you have a question on religion - please - go to church."

Sen. Arnold Vinick (R - California)

So - funny story.
I'm doing a wedding for some dear friends tonight at 7p.m.
Last night at rehearsal, my voice was about 90% gone, which was the cause of some panic.
Since that time I have swallowed more water and more hot tea with honey than Earl Grey himself.
I'm think I'm actually doing a lot better today, but to be honest, I haven't let myself talk enough to find out how weak or strong the ol' pipes are now.
At this point I'm averaging about one cup of tea every half hour.
So my question, dear reader, becomes this:
Besides the CONSTANT URINATION - Is there a
down side to ingesting such large quantities of tea?
