God and Man in Minnesota Politics

As Glenn Reynolds keeps saying, the "D" stands for Desperate.

Kathryn Jean Lopez notes an extremely distasteful mailing from the DFL (Democrat-Farm-Labor) party in God and Man in Minnesota Politics:
I think it’s safe to say it’s unholy politics. That’s a bipartisan problem for sure. But there is reason for bipartisan, ecumenical offense here. It’s an insult to suggest there isn’t some convenient anti-Catholicism here. But more so, it’s an insult to intelligent debate. Tim Pawlenty doesn’t “Ignore the Poor,” and I don’t know many men of the cloth who do either.
And it's an insult to intelligent debate to claim that the there's no anti-Catholicism in that ad.  Take a look for yourself:

So they're using imagery that's insulting to Catholics in order to impugn a Republican candidate who happens to be an evangelical pastor.  Nice job, guys.
