Republican: GOP 'panders' to Christian right 'thugs'

Just so you know, it's completely NOT NEWS when the former House Majority Leader Dick Armey (R-TX), according to Media Matters,


"embarrassing spectacle of the Republican Party's 'blatant pandering' to the Christian right and James Dobson, founder and chairman of Focus on the Family. Armey asserted that "Dobson and his gang of thugs are real nasty bullies."
Wow, a rift of this proportion, and it's not news, huh? If I'm a producer I'm asking Armey onto my show, pronto, after he writes this in the WSJ:
The national representatives of the social conservative movement used to be sophisticated and tolerant. Today, they are sophomoric and angry. It's an embarrassing spectacle seeing leaders bullied around by the likes of James Dobson, or watching the Christian Coalition team up with MoveOn.org in support of bigger government.
