The Right's Lastest Tack to Scare Up Conservative Evangelical Voters: FoleyGate is Part of an Anti-Christian "Witch Hunt"
Since the Foleygate scandal broke a week ago, the GOP and its allies have been scared shitless that Christian fundamentalists--one of the Republican Party's core constituencies--will stay home out of disgust at the GOP House leadership's apparent cover-up of the scandal (if you don't believe me, listen to Slanthead Hannity's radio show). Low turnout of fundamentalists will be disastrous for the GOP.
The right's latest tactic to fire up the sectarian right has been instigated by WorldNetDaily's claim that Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), the group responsible for forwarding the Foley IM's to the FBI--is engaged in a "witch hunt" against prominent Christian leaders.
