Well, call me a heathen
From the TNR Republican Convention blog:
Soon after Hagel spoke, the acting state Republican chair--an African-American man in a white cowboy hat named Leon Mosley--urged his delegates, "Let's remember what's paramount in our life: God ... This is the GOP: God's Official Party." At that, the room burst into sustained applause. Behold, the Republican base.
Looks like it's going to be a Houston-style hate-fest again...
