Clash Of The Titans?

The Washington Post says that the GOP hold on evangelicals is weakening. DownWithTyranny! has a great post on it with lots of numbers to back it up!

That's the danger of the Rovian strategy - pulling together groups who have little in common and promising each one that their agenda will be implemented. That strategy, so far, has been overwhelmingly successful. But it can't hold together indefinitely, because there is an innate conflict between evangelicals and plutocrats, which till now has been brushed aside in the common pursuit of power. The problem arises when the bill comes due.

They've put it off for as long as they can, but it's time to pay the piper, and the moral bank account is empty.

I'm hoping against hope that this is the beginning of the crumbling of that unholy alliance. Of course, it never pays to underestimate the power of power-mongering, and I know that the Republicans (and those who profit by them) are in no way ready to relinquish the reins. So let's hope that this will be the blast that starts the avalanche.

Whatever it takes to pull us back from the abyss...

Alicia, the GOP will be the ruin of this country.

You know, Alicia, I hate that it had to come to this. But people have not wised up with ll the corruption and blatant greed, etc., etc. So it HAD to come to this to, hopefully, turn things around. I hope for that all day every day.

"Down With Tyranny" - I think I will make that the title of my next very special special.

I'm hoping to have my Juul Haalmeyer Dancers dress like Karl Rove - a whole chorus line of little balding men, in white tights. Wouldn't that be special?
