Ken Blackwell just got a bunch of endorsements in his bid for Republican Nation Committee chairman. Many of the endorsements are from hate-mongering, homophobic, anti-intellectual Christian extremists.
Notable endorsers include homophobes like Tony Perkins and James C. Dobson as well as complete nuts like Phyllis Schlafly, well known for her opposition to the Equal Rights Amendment, and Tim LaHaye, the author of the Left Behind books and a big advocate of “curing” homosexuals.
If these people are able to wrestle control of the Republican Party away from the moderates it will mean the end of the GOP as we know it today.
I wish them the best of luck!
