Ralph Reed, demon spawn

I suppose Ralph Reed's reign of error is currently rebooting:

Microsoft Cuts Ties to Lobbyist - New York Times:
The Microsoft Corporation said on Friday that it had severed ties with Ralph Reed, a Republican lobbyist and former leader of the Christian Coalition who is running for lieutenant governor of Georgia.

“Ralph Reed is no longer on retainer with Microsoft,” said a company spokeswoman, Ginny Terzano.
...Ms. Terzano noted that Century Strategies, a public relations and lobbying firm that Mr. Reed founded in 1997, lobbied for Microsoft on international trade and competition, not social issues.

While she would not comment on Mr. Reed's candidacy for lieutenant governor, Ms. Terzano said, “It would not be appropriate to have a consultant on retainer that is seeking elective office at the same time.”

I like the reason the Tribune gave:

“Microsoft retains and lets consultants go throughout the course of the year based on the company's needs, and that was the case here,” Terzano said.

Yes, what were the 'needs' supplied by demon-spawn Reed again? Sprinkling Longhorn code with the blood of freshly killed chickens? Teaching Ballmer how to dance around bonfires while chanting?
