Second Coming

Who's Sorry Now?

Whatever your religious/spiritual beliefs, there is an alarming trend in America that is being led by the extreme evangelicals. Kevin Phillips, a former Republican strategist, has a new book out and was on Background Briefing (here) this weekend talking about his new book and Americans waiting for the second coming. Seriously.

This from CrooksandLiars today (more here):

Phillips: One of the reasons I think we have kind of screwed up economic politician in some ways is that a lot of Americans have stopped worrying about the economy because they're waiting for the second coming.

Dobbs: And you mean this quite literally?

Phillips: I mean it quite literally.
