On his radio program yesterday, Glenn Beck called Mike Huckabee "progressive" for daring to support First Lady Michelle Obama's anti-obesity campaign. Now, anyone who knows anything about Beck knows that for him, calling someone "progressive" is not a compliment. And so today, Huckabee fired back and openly mocked Beck as an inept, delusional conspiracy theorist who has no idea what he is talking about: This week Glenn Beck has taken to his radio show to attack me as a Progressive, which he has said is the same as a “cancer” and a “Nazi.”...

Former Pennsylvania Senator and likely presidential candidate Rick Santroum continues court Republican activists around the country, and yesterday addressed a GOP fundraiser in Colorado. Santorum, who previously claimed that the recently passed health care reform law intends to “addict Americans on government healthcare,” not only likened guaranteed health insurance to drug dealing but also said that it would have grave spiritual implications. He went on to say that there is “statistical proof” of American exceptionalism and that Republicans must be “ready to... MORE

I honestly cannot believe that NOM is actually quoting Virginia State Delegate Bob Marshall. Speaker John Boehner and the GOP will probably cave on defunding Planned Parenthood ... but apparently he is still an anti-choice hero. Newt Gingrich's Renewing American Leadership is starting its own prayer alert network. FRC thinks its work was so vital to one anti-health care reform lawsuit that it is getting involved in another. Finally, Bryan Fischer says there are too many questions about repealing DADT that are being left unanswered: "... MORE
