Having watched, and cringed over, Lou Sheldon up close for too long in California, I am equally appalled at the feature in the Post today. I can’t help but wonder whether this isn’t a page out of Soviet disinformation, i.e., the media doing a profile of the most discreditable opponent of gay marriage as a means of tarring by association more reasonable and serious opponents of gay marriage.
Then there is this from Sheldon in 1976 (from p. 68 of my book, The Real Jimmy Carter–plug, plug): “God has his hand upon Jimmy Carter to run for President. Of course, he’s wise enough not to be presumptuous with the will of God. But he’s moving in the will of God.”
Should anyone stupid enough to have said this be admitted in the conservative tent?
