Ralph Reed Loses!

RalphreedRalph Reed - the once-cherubic head of the Christian Coalition - has lost his campaign for Lt. Gov. of Georgia.

Mostly, it was his ties with convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff - something to do with taking kajillions of dollars from casino interests while simultaneously preaching an anti-gambling line (oh yeah, and the forced abortions on sub-minimum wage workers in the Marianas Islands that they were adamant about protecting.)

Anyway, I think it's time for one of my favorite right-wing quotes. Ralph Reed, circa 1997:

"I want to be invisible. I do guerilla warfare. I paint my face and travel at night. You don't know it's over until you're in a body bag. You don't know until election night." --Ralph Reed

This time, it's Ralph Reed who is in the body bag.

More? The Nation.

    Or, the Devil Goes Down in Georgia!

    woot! Some were saying that it would have been better for him to win the primary so a Dem could have a shot at the Lt. Gov spot--but when you have a chance to cut off the snake's head, you do it. Keeping sleazeballs like him out of the national political scene is worth much more than a titular state office.

    Huh huh, he said "titular"...

    As a former Georgian, I can safely tell you Ralphie Reed is just a very funny joke outside the baptism "splash parties" at those drive-through Christian truck stops/churches dotting one of the poorer states in the country.

    Next time, Ralph should try dogcatcher and work his way up the administrative ladder.

    Good post as usual, Kari, (Ralph Reed IS a snake), but while you're on your computer, please respond to my e-mailed query about the blogwire.

    Maybe Ralph and David Duke can hook up with the Blue Collar Comedy Tour.
