Ralph Reed's comeback

Washington (CNN) – Ralph Reed beamed in the back corner of the colonial ballroom at Washington, DC's Mayflower Hotel as Republican Congressman Lynn Westmoreland spoke. Reed clapped the loudest as Westmoreland laid out the plan for social conservatives to get involved in November's mid term elections.

"We need you in November worse than you can imagine," Westmoreland told the crowed at the Faith and Freedom Conference and Strategy Briefing.

    Current problems:

    Adulterous preachers, "propheteering/ profiteering" evangelicals like "Ralphy R" and atonement theology,

    And THAT is the genius of Ralph Reed: debunking the myth that one needs a wheelbarrow and a naked cousin to "mobilize faith voters."
