With Election Day finally having come and gone, God-o-Meter is closing up shop till 2012–or at least 2010. Till then, get your faith and politics fix over at Beliefnet editor-in-chief Steve Waldman’s blog.
It’s 8 days before Election Day and the GOP’s pastor-in-chief, Mike Huckabee, is emailing constituents with a fundraising pitch that’s silent on the party’s presidential nominee, not a good sign for McCain:
I want you to help me reach our end of October fundraising goal. We need to collect 1,640 contributions from supporters by midnight on Friday.Will you make a contribution of $10 or more today online? In return for your financial support, I will send you a copy of our new “HUCK” bumper sticker.
We have already supported dozens of candidates this year and we hope to support additional strong conservatives before Election Day. We won’t be able to however, without your financial support today.
I urge you to make a $10 or more contribution in support of our efforts. And when you do, you can do so with the knowledge that we have invested it in the campaigns of strong conservatives nationwide. Conservatives fighting for our ideas and values.
Time is running out. Help us support the candidates we have identified today. Make your $10 or more contribution and in return I will send you our new “HUCK” bumper sticker today.
With deep gratitude,
