How the McCain campaign won over the religious conservatives

It’s in an piece in today’s New York Times. When a politician who eight years ago described leading Christian conservatives as “forces of evil” (a comment he later retracted) and “agents of intolerance” (which he did not retract), gets deeply conservative Christian groups like the Council for National Policy in his pocket, you know his people have been doing some serious schmoozing. Thus the anti-Bush maverick of 2000 has become the Bush-like pious Christian of 2008. And it’s all lies. These Christian conservatives WANT to be lied to. They don’t mind if their romancer beds them and abandons them. It’s his promises of love that they really prize.
