The Increasing Irrelevance of the Radical Right, Part 2

Dobson Endorses Huckabee - Politics - CBN News
Focus on the Family founder James Dobson officially endorsed the Southern Baptist minister Mike Huckabee in his GOP presidential bid Thursday night.

The endorsement doesn't appear to be too late, either, especially with Mitt Romney dropping out of the picture earlier Thursday.

"Doesn't appear to be too late?" Is there anyone at CBN with a calculator? As the AP reported it after Super Tuesday:
Overall, McCain led with 707 delegates, to 294 for Romney and 195 for Huckabee. It takes 1,191 to win the nomination at this summer's convention in St. Paul, Minn.
I've thought for some time Dr. Dobson's influence had crested. By now backing a certain loser, he may have just squandered the last bit of political capital he had left.
