In Case You Missed It

By Cassandra D

Crooks and Liars has posted yesterday's "60 Minutes" interview with David Kuo, author of Tempting Faith and former #2 in Bush's White House Office of Faith-Based Initiatives.

In the interview, Kuo says "The name of God is being destroyed in the name of politics." Kuo admits that he himself approached Ken Mehlman to suggest using the office, at taxpayer expense, to help Republican congressional candidates in the 2002 elections, and he now feels that it was wrong to have done so. He left politics in 2003 after he was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor.

Kuo comes across in the interview as a sincere and good-hearted man who had hoped to help the poor but was instead terribly disappointed and disillusioned by the cynicism of the Bush Administration and the Republican Party.

It is worth watching.
