Disgraced former candidate and once-upon-a-time head of the Christian Coalition Ralph Reed says that the Rev. Jerry Falwell officiated back in the 1980s at "the marriage" of The Moral Majority to the Republican Party.
Woody Allen (wasn't it?) said, "Marriage is the death of hope." Did we finally see that dark aphorism fulfilled on the debating stage of South Carolina?
From that holiest union of fundamentalism and Republicanism, many children issued. Some became good, productive citizens. Others joined gangs and stole. Such a horde of offspring! Children are supposed to hold a marriage together, but some of that progeny turned into megalomaniacs. And some were just bad seed.
