    The Resurrection of Ralph Reed

    When Ralph Reed, the former head of the Christian Coalition, was discovered to have raked in millions of dollars from the super lobbyist -- and eventually convicted felon -- Jack Abramoff, Reed wound up in political purgatory. But outraged by the election of Barack Obama, and responding to what he describes as God’s call (via Sean Hannity), Reed returned to start the Faith and Freedom Coalition with the aim of toppling Barack Obama from the White House. This week, Moyers & Company tracks Reed’s rise, fall, and startling return: Does it signal a new revolution, or an old racket?

    Later on the show, Bill talks with Mike Lofgren, a long-time Republican who describes modern corruption and dysfunction in both political parties.

    If my memory is correct Moyers is a corrupt far left extremist ex Southern Baptist minister brought to the White House by that icon of virtue Lyndon Johnson!
