Right Wing Leftovers

  • Is Rick Santorum contemplating a presidential run in 2012?  We can only hope so.
  • Focus on the Family is facing a budget shortfall and handing off its “Love Won Out” conferences to Exodus International.
  • Charisma profiles Alveda King.
  • Time profiles Marco Rubio.
  • The Right is quite unhappy that Harvey Milk is being posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
  • The Family Research Council is hosting several right-wing events in the coming months in New Jersey, California, and Maine.
  • The ACLJ is apparently so concerned that Democrats are trying to “intimidate and silence critics of President Obama’s policies” that it felt the need to release a report reminding lawmakers “that this nation has a long history of Americans exercising free speech to comment on important social issues of the day.”
  • Finally, I am going to be on vacation until Thursday, August 20.  Hopefully, the Right will have gotten all of the crazy out of its system by the time I get back.
