    "But they sure did know how to play the game.

    Consider one memo highlighted in a Capitol Hill hearing Wednesday that Scanlon, a former aide to Rep. Tom DeLay, R-Tx., sent the Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana to describe his strategy for protecting the tribe's gambling business. In plain terms, Scanlon confessed the source code of recent Republican electoral victories: target religious conservatives, distract everyone else, and then railroad through complex initiatives.

    "The wackos get their information through the Christian right, Christian radio, mail, the internet and telephone trees," Scanlon wrote in the memo, which was read into the public record at a hearing of the Senate Indian Affairs Committee. "Simply put, we want to bring out the wackos to vote against something and make sure the rest of the public lets the whole thing slip past them."

    Galatian,

    Don't worry. They're certainly not talking about you in any way, shape or form.

    Far as abortion, gun control, etc. is concerned, they are. Except that I'm not going to let them flash a few slogans and manipulate me into voting for people who could care less about those issues.

    But they know that most conservative Christians will let them. Until that ends, they serve the same purpose in the GOP as blacks serve for democrats.
