Roger Ailes Throws Christian Right Under Bus

Writing in USA Today, Steve Deace fills in the gaps:
On Tuesday, News Corp. chieftain Rupert Murdoch, who oversees the parent company of Fox News, tweeted the following:

"Election: To win Romney must open big tent to sympathetic families. Stop fearing far right which has nowhere else to go."

My translation: Romney should embrace homosexual "marriage" just as the Democrats have, and publicly betray the Christians who have done most of the heavy lifting for the Republican Party since 1980 (not to mention making up most of the audience for Fox News). Just sell out these sad saps as we're about to, and they'll put up with it because the Democrats don't want them either.
I've long warned my Christian friends who vote conservative that they were nothing more than political cannon fodder. It's still surprising, however, to see them so publicly dismissed.
