(crossposted from the syntax of things:)
in a piece skewering former xtian coalition chair ralph reed, who recently lost his primary bid for the lt. governorship of georgia and said during his concession speech that "our values will win in november", colbert went on to briefly profile a couple of congressional representatives who represent "our values" (the proof is in the "a" ratings they received from the coalition) but are in a little bit of trouble with the law:
"It's too late for you to elect Ralph Reed, but you can elect his values by voting for candidates like North Carolina Representative Charles Taylor, who earned an "A" on the Christian Coalition's voting score card. And now, he's taking heat just because he threw the money lenders out of the temple... Okay, the official allegation is conspiracy to commit bank fraud, but that's just semantics."
(the inimitable john amato gets a nice tip o' the hat, while charles taylor gets the gas face... not to mention a royal skewering at the hands of those silly people at taylorsucks.org - be sure to stop by and check out the corrected version of his radio ad that they posted the other day!)
