There was an NYT article a few weeks ago on the triumphant return of Ralph Reed:
At the Republican convention in Tampa, Fla., he was sought after by party luminaries and afforded the ultimate status accommodation, a room in the same hotel as Mitt Romney. And soon he plans to unleash a sophisticated, microtargeted get-out-the-evangelical-vote operation that he believes could nudge open a margin of victory if Mr. Romney can keep the race close.
That Faith and Freedom Coalition mailer also included 10 more pages of inflammatory, debunked, and malicious rhetoric, a right-wing grab bag of Obama hatred. In this letter to potential voters, Reed claims that Obama wants an America where “government bureaucrats micromanage every aspect of your life,” the taxman “seizes most of what you earn,” and death panels—yes, those fictional death panels—determine whether you live or die. Reed insists that Obama will destroy capitalism and replace it with “Socialistic economic theories.”
Here’s the most inflammatory line: If Obama wins reelection, “he can complete America’s destruction.” This warning, naturally, is presented in bold print.
If it all works, he’ll be feted by all the right people on the Sunday morning shows.
Dennis G had a good run-down on Reed’s various past criminal activities.
