Religious conservatives, feeling marginalized by gay-loving baby-killer presidential candidates like Rudy Giuliani, have convened to grouse and whine and threaten to run a third-party candidate next year. Okay, after you're finished whooping and high-fiveing each other, consider 1) this quote:
"Conservatives have been treated like a mistress as long as any of us can
remember," Viguerie said. "They'll have lots of private meetings with us, tell
us how much they appreciate it and how much they value us, but if you see me on
the street please don't speak with me."
is pretty goddamned hilarious. Yeah, those fundamentalists have had a real rough go of it, politically, these last eight years. 2) This whole shadowy secret organization run by the Left Behind author. Doesn't it remind you of the Republican National Headquarters as envisioned by The Simpsons. You know: Mr. Burns, Dr. Hibbard, Krusty, McBain, and Dracula? Maybe that's just me. And finally, 3) if conservatives want to hear the words "Madame President" a whole lot for the next four years, then by all means they should totally run a third party candidate. Man, I never thought I'd see the day where I could actually envision Hillary winning the election. Thanks, Jesus freaks!
