Giuliani's rise to power, if successful, will have some powerful lessons:
1. The Christian right is quickly running out of steam.
2. Much of the Christian right can be bought off just by promising to be a belligerent leader. When given the choice between saving unborn babies or killing born babies, most of the Christian right will choose the latter. Ezekiel, after all, was always a more interesting read than the Sermon on the Mount.
3. The Democrats, might talk like a Republican, walk like a Republican, and vote like a Republican, but they ain't Republicans, damn it.
4. Most conservatives, being true blooded Americans, suffer from severe attention deficit disorder and can't remember what their candidate was doing three months ago, let alone a couple years back. So Rudy doesn't have much to worry about in terms of consistency. Go to a few church services, be seen at a few barbecues bemoaning the pernicious influences of Mexican housekeepers and the need to install laser guns at the border, and the whole American sheeple will fall start bleeting at your feet.
