Just a Little More Faith
You may have heard by now of David Kuo's potential blockbuster (in more ways than one) new book, Tempting Faith: An Inside Story of Political Seduction. It is being reported that Kuo, who was the number two man in the White House's faith-based initiatives program, reveals that "President Bush's top political advisers privately ridiculed evangelical supporters as 'nuts' and 'goofy' while embracing them in public and using their votes to help win elections."
What has been the reaction of the White House? Why, they whistled up former speechwriter Michael Gerson, who called Kuo's account "laughable." You might even say that they consider Kuo's account ... oh, I don't know ... "nuts" and "goofy"?
