We can only hope

Will Christian conservatives back a third-party candidate if the Republican Party nominates pro-choice Rudy Giuliani? I hope so. A commentator at the New York Times says:

Let the Republicans nominate Rudy so the Evangelicals can run a 3rd party candidate. We’ll get a Clinton in the office with just a plurality of the vote. Sounds like 1992 all over again!
Yee hah!

Hmmm, I'd never thought about it this way before, especially after reading the cover story of Harper's a few weeks ago, "A Fate Worse Than Bush: Why You Should Fear a President Giuliani." But hey, if his nomination can fracture the Republican party into competing camps - on the one hand, fiscal conservatives with a slightly nationalistic bent and less compassion for the downtrodden than some, and on the other, radical misogynistic homophobes frothing at the mouth at the prospect of resisting a modernity their clunking generalizing minds can't deal with, by means of effecting a proto-fascistic nativistic theocracy cloaked in the language of "family values," then....

Rudy Giuliani, Republican nominee '08, Rah Rah Sis Boom Bah!

Keep up the good work guys.
