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."
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.
