There is the flock, but where is the Sheppard?

I noticed with some amusement on the news tonight that conservative Christians, the so called "values voters", are disgruntled with the Republican leadership. It appears that the fundamentalists feel that the Republicans, having courted their vote, have now abandoned them. Hmmm, I wonder why that would be? Could it be because the Republican Junta don't give a fuck about values, Christian or otherwise.

It was even funnier to note that during the same news piece the fundies were welcoming Tom Delay at one of their little Jesus-loving banquets. Tom Delay, in case you haven't heard of him, is the former Republican house majority leader that is currently being prosecuted for corruption.

I guess the moral of the story here is that if you believe in mystical sock-puppets in the sky, then it's no great surprise that you'd be hoodwinked by the Republicans.
