Mr. Lord points out that the recalcitrance of social conservatives to support the candidates proffered by the Republican Party has had some negative consequences vis a vis Roe vs. Wade.p>But he somehow misses the larger issue, which is, why does the Republican Party continue to foist a host of bad candidates on those of us who are inclined to vote Republican in the first place? The cast of characters that are elevated by the officials in the Republican Party to run for office are not themselves advocates for the very positions that the Republican electorate wants advanced. And, given our recent tragic history of the Republican officeholders failing to advance the conservative agenda when they held all three branches of office, the chickens are simply coming home to roost. And this phenomenon is happening at the state, at well as the national, levels. This disappointment explains why the Republican Party lost the last election cycle and why they lag the Democrats in fundraising today. The list of Republican failures in this respect is too long to document here. But why should anyone who truly cares about supporting a conservative agenda vote for these imbeciles at all? If given a choice between Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler in an election, then a man of conscience would surely not vote at all. br> — Harry Hill

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?
