:P

By Will Durst

Last week, a clandestine cadre of controlling conservative Christian captains (bunch of right-wing religious nut jobs is what I’m getting at) threatened to run from the GOP like ducks from an alligator the size of a Buick if any infidel they don’t anoint is nominated for president. And yes, a specific former New York City mayor was mentioned. Funny you should ask.

At a meeting in Salt Lake City (where else—you thought Vegas maybe?) Heaven’s Soldiers collectively decided they would rather support a burned-beyond-recognition, duckbill platypus with wire-coat-hanger hands than a certain Mr. Rudolph Giuliani. Apparently the Mayor of 9/11 is not the answer to their prayers.

He isn't. They can't trust his views on gays and abortion -- the dreaded dynamic demons of the religious right.

Meanwhile, Giuliani is probably less interested in attracting that vote as he is in playing the fear card.

No wonder the realistic repubs are now saying they don't think they've got a chance in this election. Look at the friggin choices. Extremists on the loony side of the conservative spectrum.

They're still towing that line about not supporting abortion-lovin' Rudy:

[url]Christian Right Threatens to Ditch the GOP If the Nominee Is Like Giuliani[/url]

Quote:
By Rob Boston, Church and State. Posted November 12, 2007.

James Dobson and Religious Right allies threaten to dump the Republican Party if the presidential nominee fails "family values" test.

Focus on the Family Chairman James C. Dobson emerged from a top-secret, closed-door meeting of the Religious Right in Salt Lake City with some tough talk for the Republican Party: If you nominate a candidate who is pro-choice on abortion, I will walk.

Dobson does not plan to be alone. The New York Times reported Oct. 1 that the FOF head was among a collection of Religious Right leaders who met during a gathering of the Council for National Policy (CNP) Sept. 29. Movement leaders pledged to back a third party if the GOP nominates Rudy Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City.

The CNP, an umbrella organization of far-right groups, is normally very secretive about its activities, and talking to the press is strictly verboten. But this time it seemed at least some of the coalition's members were deliberately seeking media attention.

The Times reported that the talk about a third party "emerged from a group that broke away for separate discussions" during the CNP gathering.
...

But I can imagine that if the dems can hold their noses in support of a possible Clinton presidency, then the repubs would do the same for a possible Giuliani nod.
