HEY, NY-9: I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU THOUGHT YOU WERE GETTING, BUT THIS IS WHAT YOU GOT
Two headlines. First, from Matt Drudge, via Politico's Ben Smith:
Then, from The Hill:
More from that Politico story:
By the Weprin campaign's calculation, the district is one third Jewish, and one third of those Jews are Orthodox. More detailed Democratic polling from before the campaign began found the district was 30% Jewish, and that 37% of those Jews (32% of the prime voters among them) don't carry money on the Sabbath -- an Orthodox practice.
And now this, from the Hill story:
Republican presidential candidate and Texas Gov. Rick Perry used his speech to a packed audience at the conservative evangelical Liberty University to discuss his own faith -- and to call for more Christian influence on America....
Perry praised the school, which was founded by the late Rev. Jerry Falwell, a father of the religious right movement, for "preserving those unique Christian origins and purpose" upon which it was founded.
He then said those values were needed more nationwide.
"It is important that [pastors] stand in the pulpit every day and defend those values, those Christian values," Perry said. "America is going to be guided by some set of values -- the question is going go to be -- whose values? I believe that ... it's the Christian values that this country was based upon."
This is the likely future president from the party you just helped to empower. I hope you're happy with him.
