Evening open thread…and a quote of the day from Ralph Reed
Blogwhore, chat and link away…
Ralph Reed dubs himself the fundie Steve Jobs
For this evening’s laugh, take a look at the blather coming out of the mouth of fundie Ralph Reed regarding the launch of his latest group, the Faith and Freedom Coalition.
One of the most controversial and successful figures of late 20th century politics wants to expand his brand to the 21st.
Ralph Reed believes conservative voters of faith need a Christian Coalition 2.0. And the man once dubbed the “right hand of God” by Time magazine is returning to the arena where he had his greatest success to try and make it so.
“This is not going to be your daddy’s Christian Coalition. It has to be younger, hipper, less strident, more inclusive and it has to harness the 21st century that will enable us to win in the future. Even though I’ve been doing other things, this is kind of like Steve Jobs returning to Apple.”
I should point out that he phrased his nifty spin on diversity a bit more explicitly to US News and World Report::
“It’s got to be more brown, more black, more female, and younger. It’s critical that we open the door wide and let them know if they share our values and believe in the principles of faith and marriage and family, they’re welcome.”
