Right Wing Leftovers

  • WorldNetDaily breathlessly reports that “after 11 Sundays in office, [President] Obama still hasn’t found a church – even with Easter just four days away.”
  • Christopher Hitchens and Ken Blackwell debated whether the US is a Christian nation last night on “Hardball.” As Diana Butler Bass report, Blackwell was badly over-matched.
  • The Right’s opposition to Harold Koh continues to pick up steam.
  • Gordon Klingenschmitt is branching out from his work protecting the rights of Chaplains to pray in Jesus’ name in order to weigh in on the nomination of David Hamilton, whom he calls “the worst of Obama’s 15 new liberal appeals court appointees” … which is a remarkable accomplishment considering that Obama has only made 3 nominations so far.
  • Pollster John Zogby has some advice for the GOP that it will surely ignore:
  • Stumping for God, guns and banning gay marriage … just won’t appeal to young people. However, none of this means that Republicans must turn on a dime against the beliefs of Christian conservatives and others on the right. Instead, Republican voters should allow candidates to hold some different policy positions, and it must involve cooling the rhetoric on divisive issues, including abortion, gay rights and the meaning of patriotism.
