Gathering Storm for Ralph Reed
hypocrisy: a feigning to be what one is not or to believe what one does not; especially : the false assumption of an appearance of virtue or religion
When thinking about the troubles of Ralph Reed, one is struck with a sense of righteous schadenfraude. Ed Kilgore has an excellent piece in the Washington Monthly laying out the avenging furies that beset the golden boy. As he says about Reed's campaign for political office in Georgia, "His current campaign—according to his friends, the first step toward an eventual presidential run—is now in deep trouble, its cheery conservative message all but drowned out by the soft clucking of chickens coming home to roost."
