the NYT on Colorado Springs

Not scientific, but anecdotal.
My Own Private Focus Group - Timothy Egan Blog - NYTimes.com

Money quote:
Quote:
ďAs a small business owner, itís very hard to watch a lifetime of hard work and savings just wither away in the last two weeks,Ē said Jan Martin, a native of this more-than-mile-high city, and a lifelong Republican. ďThe debate on Tuesday night has, if anything, bolstered my opinion.Ē
Now, who wants to bet that Ms. Martin and a certain sun-worshipping kayaker have their names inexplicably removed from El Paso County voting rolls (mine was on as of Monday).

Personally, I'd love to see a shooting war between New Life Church and Focus on the Family... but my enemy is not religion, per se, it is the theocratic wing of all religions that asserts political opinions which contradict bibilical interpretations are heresy.

Dobson is yesterday. Boyd is tomorrow, saying that the environment, the poor, and helping those in his church who’ve lost a job or a house are things that matter to his congregation.

That leaves the circus of Sarah Palin and the sad specter of a snarling John McCain fading as they embrace the slippery bonds of the last century.
good stuff there.
