8. Yeah, I had a feeling Drumpf was sucking up to the Catholic radtrads, and now there's proof.

Drumpf made a number of remarks over his term about his deference to the radtrad fanatics, but I had no idea there was someone like Leo at the Federalist Society, which had always been more focused on installing "Neanderthal justices" (Ted Kennedy's term) than anything else. If anything, the Federalist Society seemed like one of the more secular right-wing "think" tanks, or at least generically Protestant. Clearly many of us were mistaken.

The Catholic Information Center had quite a role in politics in recent years, including very public conversions of Robert Bork, Laura Ingraham, Newt Gingrich, Robert Novak, and others I can't recall. The CIC is basically a front for Opus Dei, although I'm not sure you can call it a "front" when it's as open as it is about its affiliation. The CIC is located on K Street, which is some of the most expensive real estate in the US, if not the world.
