    And think while Maggie is a stupid person, she isn't stupid enough to really imagine there can be a resurgent mainstream culture war movement.

    The mainstream is not the target market.

    It's a wingnut welfare Organization. It's a graft operation, like Sarah Palin's "presidential" ambitions.

    It will collect money from neanderthals who fear lesbians hawking t-shirts for JC Penney is the first horseman of the apocalypse. And it will collect money for dead in the water, pie in the sky initiatives like amending the US Constitution to ban gay marriage. And Maggie will laugh way all the way to the bank, while teenagers continue to kill themselves thanks to the relentless vitriol she directs at too many essentially good people.

      Followed the link above. What a horrid, sad person. I'm sure she gets paid by the rubes who support her cause. But she's basically running the political equivalent of a VHS rental. She has to know the best she can do is delay the inevitable. How sad.

        During the Bush admin she was a syndicated newspaper columnist.

        It came out she'd collected hundreds of thousands of dollars to write nice things in her syndicated column about Bush's family friend initiatives.

        Of course she didn't have the journalist integrity to tell her readers she was on the Bush Admin payroll and essentially composing press releases for them disguished as op-eds.

        Because she's a greedy liar.

        Find a hard right wing cause, and you'll find some wealthy asshole to bankroll it.

      Yup.
