The EFM Feature

Well, the EFM team had a good day yesterday. All of us attended–and EFM sponsored–National Review Online’s tenth anniversary bash in DC. And we discovered on-site that Gov. Romney and his wife’s charitable foundation was also a sponsor. In fact, as K-Lo has reported, Gov. Romney was in attendance, too, and he was a hit.
But that was not all. EFM was also mentioned in a Slate piece extolling the gains Gov. Romney has made among evangelicals. (I’d recommend ignoring the author’s clear anti-evangelical bias and focusing on the obvious progress on which he reports.) This followed the Tuesday L.A. Times piece (previously unreported here–sorry) in which Dr. Richard Land, who heads the Southern Baptist Convention’s public policy arm, essentially channeled EFM in saying, “We are not electing a theologian-in-chief. We are electing a commander-in-chief.”
And there is of course a reason that that L.A. Times piece went unreported here (and why my own posts have been so sparse lately). Apart from the NRO event, I am in the process of moving to Virginia, and I am marrying my best friend on Sunday. Dawn is the maid of honor and the French children are the flower girl and ring bearer. So we are all busy. Please excuse us. For my part, I will be honeymooning until Oct. 30, but David, Nancy, and Dawn will be back shortly (if not today–those Frenches tend to find Internet connections wherever they go). I will leave aside, out of Christian love, the fact that while I am gone all their posts will probably revolve around that cursed show Battlestar Galactica
In the meantime, you might check out the new quotes page, which has just been updated with (in addition to what Dr. Land said) some kind words from conservative rock stars Bill O’Reilly and Ann Coulter. See y’all later.
