James Dobson’s slide into irrelevance

from ABC News

“I never thought I would hear myself saying this,” Dobson said in a radio broadcast to air Monday. “… While I am not endorsing Senator John McCain, the possibility is there that I might.”

Do you get the feeling that James Dobson refused to endorse McCain and… no one cared. So now he throws his support to McCain so he can pretend that it mattered. But I don’t think he’s fooling anyone:

Critics argue his influence is waning, pointing to a younger generation of leaders pushing to broaden the movement’s agenda.

Does James Dobson still have influence

      on the bathroom thing.  Ya know that “bathroom bill” nonsense?  Wasn’t that Dobson’s creation?  I think you have have to drive to a neighboring state for that one.  Raton isn’t that far away.

    So, basically, he was AGAINST John McCain before he was FOR John McCain….  hmmmm…. shades of John Kerry!

    Seems so long ago now. dobson hit the right notes after 9/11, using  panic and hysteria to further the old hate and intolerance message, delivering for “w”, making himself a boatload of cash for a long period. (the tried and true  faith based windfall). But I’ve lived long enough to see charlatans of his ilk “rise from the ashes” before. His relevance may be marginalized right now, but he’s still powerful enough to reemerge. He just needs a new angle. The 71 year old presumptive nominee, suddenly ” seeking counsel from the good doctor”, “seeing the light”, and “coming back to the flock” just might be it, for both dobson AND mccain.
