“The overwhelming majority of Christian conservatives are upstanding Americans … Surely there is a way for Republican office-seekers to appeal to them without wooing the most extreme.” – Dana Milbank . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank has been wrong on a number of occasions, but this isn’t one of them. In his opinion piece “Why did Republicans embrace the Duggars in the first place?“, Milbank writes, “What’s troubling is that the Republican presidential candidates have been so worshipful of the Duggars in the first place. The political issue is not what Josh Duggar did as a teenager but why so many who seek the nation’s highest office feel the need to woo people so far out on the ideological extreme.”

Even if one doesn’t like Milbank, he still asks a fair question.
