In our quest to chronicle the increasingly over-the-top response that Sarah Palin is generating in the Religious Right, we’d be remiss if we didn’t highlight this quote from notorious right-wing curmudgeon Lou Sheldon:
While Palin’s pick is designed in part to woo disaffected Clinton voters, Palin overnight has become the darling of conservatives. Before her speech, “I thought I died and went to heaven,” said the Rev. Lou Sheldon, founder of the California-based Traditional Values Coalition. The coalition is planning a nationwide get-out-the-vote effort.
Sheldon is the right-wing version of “Mikey” from the old Life Cereal commercials, in that he hates everything … but he loves Sarah Palin. That ought to tell you something.
