Sarah Palin Preemptively Insults Tony Perkins and Values Voters

Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin insulted her rabid followers weeks in advance of their political gathering. Conservative religious pundits panned Barack Obama's pretentious columns and Sarah hit them hard in her talk at the Republican National Convention:

"When the cloud of rhetoric has passed, when the roar of the crowd fades away, when the stadium lights go out, and those Styrofoam Greek columns are hauled back to some studio lot – what exactly is our opponent's plan? What does he actually seek to accomplish, after he's done turning back the waters and healing the planet?"

Uh oh! CSPAN just showed Tony Perkins and Ren Broekhuizen speaking in front of Greek columns at the Values Voter Summit's Gala Dinner. I believe these folks seriously want to turn back the waters and heal the planet, or at least they follow one who did.

That's when they're not advocating "Pulpit Freedom", learning how to organize a voter registration drive, fretting about illegal immigration, trying to end abortion, nixing the dreaded death tax or forming their political action committee (PAC). Of 134 candidates the FRC PAC supports, 132 are Republican and 2 are Democratic candidates.

Who spoke in front of pretentious Greek columns at the Values Voter Summit? Who else did their imitation of Apollo, Sean Hannity's derisive description of Obama in front of the columns?

Chuck Colson, Chairman, Prison Fellowship Ministries, Board of Directors
Mike Huckabee, Governor (1996-2007), R-AR
James Dobson, Founder, Focus on the Family
Robert George, Member, President's Council on Bioethics
Tony Perkins, President, Family Research Council
Bill Bennett, Talk Show Host, Salem Radio Network, Morning in America
Ren Broekhuizen, Board Member, Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty

Haul 'em back to that studio lot, just like Sarah said. Let the planet healing begin....
