It almost makes me wonder if Dobson’s “he ain’t a real Christian” outburst was a calculated ploy to give Thompson needed distance from the extreme religious right.  If that wasn’t the intent, it sure was its effect. 

It also probably had the effect of boosting Mitt Romney’s profile ,as it likewise diminished Dobson’s political influence.  (Or, perhaps, exposed that Dobson really had very little to begin with.)
