Right Wing Leftovers

  • Rep. Michele Bachmann has hired Christine O’Donnell’s campaign spokesman as her new communications director.
  • Sharron Angle has launched a new Patriot Caucus PAC to support Tea Party candidates around the country.
  • Finally, the quote of the day from Chuck Colson comparing reaction to the Prop 8 vote to Nazism: “When I watched the violence on television, memories came back of earlier generations of thugs: Bull Conner, who, with the help of brutal cops, used violence and intimidation to chase African Americans out of the public square. Or roving gangs of Nazi brownshirts who ruled the streets of Germany during Hitler’s rise to power. Do opponents of Proposition 8 who attacked Mormons and their churches think they’re any better than Bull Conner, or nicer than Nazi thugs? I don’t.”
