Low Turnout at Family Impact Summit

The St. Petersburg Times reports that turnout for the Family Impact Summit was “smaller than expected: fewer than 130 people. Many were senior citizens; almost all were white. And nearly all of them shared a vision of a culture tilting out of control.” But those in attendance were at least treated to a speeh by Katherine Harris: “Speaking at an auctioneer’s pace, she advised the audience on what to expect if they ran for office. ‘I come before you not as an exemplar of Christian citizenship, but as one who has learned lessons from the fire,’ she said. Prepare to be attacked in the press and to feel the burden of responsibility, she said. She told them to educate themselves on the upcoming presidential race, but not to read newspapers.”
