I just finished reading “A Knife to the Throat” by Tracy Mehan. It is about time someone at your organization told the truth about the cross-dressing, baby-killing, pro-homosexual, anti-gunning, presidential hopeful from New Yorker! There is nothing good about this man. A man cannot believe in killing babies and be a man of stature or a man of integrity. It seems that many at your organization are throwing your lot in with the devil by promoting such an abomination as Giuliani. Your magazine has tried to force him down the throats of conservatives in past issues and articles on your website. I’m here to say that my conservative beliefs and faith in Jesus Christ would never allow me to vote for such an anti-Christian, anti-conservative. Your continual support of Giuliani has led me to stop purchasing your magazine. If I want to read about a baby-killing liberal I’ll purchase the New Republic or some other such publication.p>Will your magazine pick up the push for Bloomberg to run for office as well? I don’t think we need another Big City New York liberal running for the Republican ticket. If you really want to do something for the Republican Party and the Conservative cause, you would be better off supporting a candidate with Judeo-Christian values that does not come from New York. True Americans out here in flyover country don’t want some East Coast quasi-Republican. We want a real candidate with real flyover values. br> — Gary Martin br> Eden Prairie, Minnesota /p> p> Quite frankly, I found Mr. Mehan’s, hysterical polemic about Mr. Giuliani to be disingenuous, vulgar and distasteful. It’s the typical war room hit job usually associated with those in the Clinton camp. But it’s nice to see that a principled social conservative like Mr. Mehan can get down and dirty with the best of them. I dare say that Mr. Giuliani’s graciousness far exceeds that of Mr. Mehan’s. Then again, isn’t it so typically hypocritical of a D.C. insider, like Mr. Mehan, to shriek that Giuliani’s candidacy is a “knife to the throat of the Reagan Coalition” and a “lethal threat to social conservatism”; this coming from a man who had no such dire concerns while serving under both Presidents Bush. My admiration for Bush 43 notwithstanding, seems to me the Reagan Coalition hasn’t fared very well under either President Bush. But perhaps like George Tenet, Mr. Mehan didn’t see his continued involvement with both Presidents Bush as his “Faustian bargain.” You’re free to hold Mr. Giuliani’s feet to the conservative fire, that’s your right, just try and be a bit less waspish about it. br> — A.

A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
