Amy Sullivan, who is one of the few journalists who really understand religion and the religio-political landscape, looks at Newt Gingrich's attempts to reach out to Evangelical voters in a post at Time magazine.

But, with Donald Trump becoming a birther and Michelle Bachmann considering the race (for those who think Sarah Palin is just too much of a nerdy intellectual), the GOP presidential sweepstakes promises to be strange indeed.
