Tempting Faith

David Kuo is a a self-professed conservative Christian. He spent five years as the second in command of President Bush's Office of Faith Based Initiatives. Now he's written a book about his experiences there titled, “Tempting Faith.”

In his book, Kuo writes that political strategist Karl Rove received conservative Christian leaders warmly, with hugs and smiles in person, but called them "the nuts" behind their backs.

It seems the words "ridiculous," "out of control," and just plain "goofy" were thrown about, as well.

Red State Rabble readers will be shocked to learn that Ken Mehlman, who at the time was White House political affairs director, knowingly participated in a scheme to use the office, and taxpayer funds, to organize “nonpartisan” events designed to mobilize religious voters.

Jonathan Larsen, producer of "Countdown" with Keith Olberman has more here. Many of these revelations and others will be the topic of discussion on tonight’s program.

You can watch it tonight at 8 p.m. ET

Update: You can watch the video now at Crooks and Liars.
