SEESHOLTZ: When Prostitution is Called 'A Marriage of Convenience'

David Kuo is a conservative Christian. Until 2003 he was deputy director of President Bushs Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives. Even before his new book Tempting Faith: An Inside Story of Political Seduction was released (pertinent excerpts from the book are now available), fallout from the nuclear detonation or nu-cu-lar as linguistically-challenged George W. would say was being reported:

A former Bush aide claims that evangelical Christians were embraced for political gain at the White House but derided privately as nuts, ridiculous and goofy. Kuo's account of how the faith-based office has been regarded inside the White House recalls that of another high-level alumnus of the program. John J. DiIulio Jr., the faith-based offices first director, who quit in 2002, told Esquire magazine that Mayberry Machiavellis led by Rove based policy only on re-election concerns.


The evangelical Christian Right thought theyd finally found their messiah in George W. Bush who would lead them to the promised land of their New World Order. What they got was a screw-up who most of the world considers the greatest threat to global peace and whose domestic policies have been fiascos, failures, or both.

1. "christians" trick fucked by bush and they are in denial
bush's base, the group responsible for the demise of our military and the ruination of our economy got fucked royally by the grand old party; lied to, duped and conned into thinking bush was a honest, moral, fine upstanding "christian."

Isn't it telling that liberals knew what bush was years ago and now the rest of the world (except the religiously insane dupes who still support bush) are opening their little puppy eyes and seeing a monster.

"Christians" do not deserve constitutional liberties.

3. I am so old that I remember Regan.
The Republicans have been dragging the radical religious right around by the short hairs for many years now. Or is it the other way around? No, I think I had it right the firt time. The radical religious right hasn't gotten much out of the deal. The Republican party has been been the big winner.

I don't know if the radical religious right will ever wake up and realize that they have been used. Probably not. They are not part of the reality based community.

But they should realize it. This has been going on for a LONG time.
