Back when speculation was flying about whom John McCain would name as his running mate, one name that kept popping up was Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty. He was, and remains, relatively unknown on the national scence but, when his name started floated as a potential VP pick, he quietly started making the rounds and doing a bit of outreach to the Religious Right.For instance, last June he sat down for an interview with CBN's David Brody where he assured Evangelicals that they could support John McCain and that he would make them proud, as well declaring that his own value system...

The Washington Times reports that organizers of this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference are expecting record turn-out this year as the movement tries to get its act together after seeing its Republican allies tossed out of office during the last several elections: CPAC is expected to draw nearly 9,000 activists and college students from across the country, up from the record 7,000 who attended last year, when the main attractions were personal appearances by President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and the four remaining Republican presidential nomination hopefuls...

Last week, when we wrote about the fund-raising letter bearing Sen. Sam Brownback's signature which questioned the Catholic faith of several Democratic members of Congress, we noted that Brownback's staff proclaimed that they had nothing to do with it and that they "had never seen, heard of, or approved it."As it turns out, it looks like that is not completely accurate, as Brownback's Chief of Staff Glen Chambers sent an email to Deal Hudson, founder of the group which issued the letter in question, blaming it all on on an unnamed campaign aide from last year:Deal -As I mentioned to...

Yesterday, the Arkansas Democrat Gazette reported that Mike Huckabee is working hard to hold on to the influence he gained during the Republican primary via his political action committee, Huck PAC. Unfortunately, Huckabee's popularity with grassroots conservatives has not necessarily been translating into significant funding, and so Huck PAC is focusing, at the moment, on building up an army of volunteers:The former Arkansas governor and presidential candidate this week will boost his political action committee's effort to string together a nationwide web of grass-roots organizers...

Ken Starr says that President Obama should be prepared for an "uphill battle over his Supreme Court nominees because as a senator he opposed two of President George W. Bush's Supreme Court picks."Some group called Conservatives Students Activists and Policy Makers is having a joint conference during the upcoming CPAC that will reportedly feature Michelle Malkin, Glenn Reynolds, Mike Huckabee, and Joe the Plumber. I have never even heard of them.Richard Land continues to insist that pursuing stem-cell research makes us modern day cannibals.Among the things that will probably not... MORE >

There is nothing particularly ground-breaking contained in this latest video update from Rob Schenck of Faith and Action, but it does provide some interesting insight into how closely many of the right-wing groups we write about here are intertwined. Schenck is discussing the expansion of their ministry into new space and, at the 1:40 mark, he begins to relate all of the various groups who currently occupy space in Faith to Action’s Washington DC headquarters, among them the Christian Defense Coalition, Priests for Life, the National Pro-Life Action Center, the Judicial Action...

Prior to the election, we spent a lot of time chronicling various right-wing figures who had, at one point, publicly declared their loathing of John McCain only to subsequently turn around as Election Day approached to admit that they would, after all, vote for him. High-profile leaders like James Dobson and Paul Weyrich were joined by the likes of Rick Santorum and Richard Viguerie in undergoing this transformation. But now that the election is over and McCain is back to his job as a Senator, it seems that some of his one-time supporters have decided that it is now safe to revert... MORE >

I'm thinking of starting a new semi-regular feature consisting of some of the things I see during the day that don't necessarily warrant a post of their own but are still worth noting. For instance, here is Constitution Party candidate Chuck Baldwin offering up his take on the best and worst things of 2008 - among his "worst" is something that'll get no argument from us:In addition to the mainstream media, and worthless talk show hosts such as Sean Hannity, I must include the majority of so-called leaders within the Religious Right as making my "worst" list for...
