Consequences for Dole's Religious Extremism

No need to go into detail, but the chickens came home to roost for Lizzy Dole. Dole decided to go the holier-than-thou attack route and accused her opponent of being "godless". And North Carolina voters realized she was a little creepy, and voted for Kay Hagan for Senate instead.

Could this signal the end of using Americans' faith as a wedge issue? As Karl Rove said, I am not fortunate enough to be a person of faith, but I don't think that people who are care for this kind of exploitation by politicians. At least the ones in North Carolina don't.
