Bluto's Hour Come Round At Last

Dick Armey, one of the architects, along with Newt Gingrich, of the "Contract with America" and the "Republican Revolution" of the 1990's has apparently seen what he hath wrought, calling the religious right and their leaders -- especially Focus on the Family Action Chairman Dr. James Dobson -- "nasty bullies."
Armey went on to say:

I pray devoutly every day, but being a Christian is no excuse for being stupid. There's a high demagoguery coefficient to issues like prayer in schools. Demagoguery doesn't work unless it's dumb . . . These issues are easy for the intellectually lazy and can appeal to a large demographic.

The rest of the story proceeds to assassinate Armey's character, as might be expected in a piece paid for by Dobson's Focus on the Family Action organization and carried on Focus on the Family's Citizenlink web page.
One part of me appreciates Armey speaking out now but another can't help thinking that it is somehow fitting for the mad doctor who loosed this monster upon the world to get devoured by his own creation, in the political version of a B science fiction flick.
