  •  Even the weekends had some terrible dreck (0+ / 0-)

    during the latter Bush years (2004-2008). Our local NPR affiliate station had an American Public Media show called Weekend America that ranged from mildly pro-Bush to barftastically pro-Bush. It featured a regular segment called Good News, Bad News or No News in which a "balanced" panel of liberals and conservatives classified news stories. They scraped the bottom of the barrel for conservatives and found Nancy French, author who had written one complete book (impressive) about moving from Tennessee to New York and being treated as an outsider (cliche much?). The show was cancelled (money reasons). The next time I heard about Nancy French she was founding a group called Evangelicals for Mitt in 2005. After Mitt dropped out of the primaries, I forgot about her. I must admit that after the 2012 election I enjoyed some schadenfreude and bitter-tear photos. I made a mental note to see what had become of Nancy French.  Today that mental note found its way to the top of the pile and I googled her name learned that she had ghost-written Bristol Palin's book and was still running Evangelicals for Mitt (along with her husband) through the 2012 election. I was able to read her blog with her reactions to the election and even saw a bitter-tears photo of her. I am a horrible person but at least I am not an evangelical working to make a cultist theodemocrat palatable to other Baptists. If you are also a horrible person who indulges in schadenfreude, here's the link. And it was also pleasurable to read earlier blog posts to see how they were wrong about almost everything and to see them argue with Newt's supporters and Cain's supporters about which candidate was most deserving of evangelical votes.
