Battle for the Base

via the Strib, Sen Obama shares where the Right may have gone wrong:
"Somehow, somewhere along the way, faith stopped being used to bring us together and faith started being used to drive us apart," the Democratic presidential hopeful said before the national meeting of the United Church of Christ, of which Obama is a member.

"Faith got hijacked, partly because of the so-called leaders of the Christian right, all too eager to exploit what divides us," he said.
I believe the electorate is on to this. There is a scramble of the Right Wing bass, as the immigration issue splinters them, and the Christian Right flexes their muscles. The GOP has always been a master of message control, so it will be interesting to see if they can reel in their constituency and position themselves for retention of the White House. At this point, it is looking more like a long shot, but never count them out.
