We don't need no fundie wingnuts

What Jonathan Singer says:
If November 7 showed us anything, it was that the Democrats clearly do not need the suppport of Evangelical voters in order to create an electoral majority. And a report by Neela Banerjee in today's issue of The New York Times should put to rest the theory that the religious right is at all interested forging any semblence of compromise or comity with progressives, be it on social issues or even issues such as the environment.
Few things annoy me more than watching Democrats sell progressive values down the river in order to chase Evangelical voters who aren't going to vote for them anyway. For many the tribal affiliations are too strong. Don't bother.
