"Book: Bush aides called evangelical backers 'nuts'"

An interesting article from Dallas Morning News:

A new book by a former White House official says President Bush's top political advisers privately ridiculed evangelical supporters as "nuts" and "goofy" while embracing them in public and using their votes to help win elections.
Evangelicals aren't likely to start voting for other parties. But they may stop voting for the GOP, and that would be good enough. This article brings into question the sincerity of a Senate bill that Papa Hippie warned me about: S 3957 (from Talk to Action, a site I'll have to revisit).

But ultimately I have great faith in the willful ignorance and reliable stupidity of those who have allowed themselves to be played this hard for so long. I don't expect this revelation to affect the GOP's base.
