James Dobson: Slightly Delusional?

From First Read:

The results of the Iowa caucuses reveal that conservative Christians remain a powerful force in American politics," Dobson said in a statement. "That had to be a great shock to those on the far-Left! The New York Times wrote a demeaning obituary of Values Voters in an article called 'the Evangelical Crackup.' CNN piled-on, proclaiming the demise of the 'old values'... Sixty percent of the voters in the Iowa caucuses were self-identified Evangelicals, and 45 percent of them supported Mike Huckabee. The former governor may not become the eventual Republican nominee, and I have not endorsed him, but what happened there last night was evidence of an energized and highly motivated conservative community. Not bad for a supposed bunch of demoralized, depressed, disillusioned and disengaged Reaganites."

The evangelical turnout was as high as 60% among the GOP last night, but the Dem turnout was almost 2:1 in their favor.

"Slightly" delusional? This is the same James Dobson who claimed that Satan himself, driving a black Porsche, chased his son around Denver while Dobson Senior was sitting on Ed Meese's commission on pornography.
