John McCain recently courted Jerry Falwell. So I guess Rudy Giuliani felt he needed to get Ralph Reed. According to the Associated Press, Giuliani has agreed to headline a fundraiser in May for Reed’s campaign for Georgia Lt. Gov.

Oh, the irony. A pro-gay rights, pro-choice, pro-gun control New Yorker stumping with a right-wing Christian crook. If Giuliani had to pick an evangelical activist to campaign with, couldn’t he of found someone who wasn’t Jack Abramoff’s best friend? Shouldn’t the so-called law and order Mayor be shunning a cynical political operator who defrauded fellow Christians and robbed and ruined Indian tribes? Doesn’t he realize that a path to the presidency no longer runs through Ralph Reed?

Campaigning with the likes of Rick Santorum, as Giuliani did in Philadelphia today, is bad enough. But Reed represents a whole ‘nother level of despicable. If Rudy wanted to show solidarity with a conservative moonbat, he should’ve picked Reed’s primary opponent, Casey Cagle.
