Right Wing Leftovers

  • Ken Blackwell has been named co-chair of the RNC’s Redistricting Committee.
  • In its effort to stop hate crimes legislation, the Family Research Council is asking supporters to target Arkansas’s Blanche Lincoln and Mark Pryor as well as Alaska’s Mark Begich.
  • FRC’s Tom McClusky writes that Al Franken’s election to the Senate “says more about how far the Senate has fallen then how high the former comedian has risen” and that merely calling him “Senator” makes him vomit.
  • Focus on the Family recently celebrated its three millionth visitor to its headquarters.
  • Finally, I fully expect that this effort will cause the Religious Right to freak out in all sorts of predictable ways.
