David Kuo, RIP

Joe Klein has one of the nicest remembrances of his friend David Kuo, who passed away last week.  David Kuo | TIME.com  I read Kuo's book on his days in the Bush administration and, at the time, thought his words would spur christian conservatives to rethink their loyalty to the conservative movement.

Of course, that was folly.  The people who defended torture weren't really that concerned about "faith based" organizations and were not at all interested in the "compassionate" brand of conservatism that Bush supposedly pushed.

But Kuo was, and there are a lot of people out there who are.  It is my hope that his legacy will live on in those people of faith who work tirelessly to help the least of these.
