Religious Right Tears Apart Republican Party via Huckabee


The Buzz on A2 of the KC Star had this little tid bit:

Arianna Huffington writes that Huckabee's poll surge is partly the result of decades of Republicans capitalising on evangelical voters as "just a resource to be cynically exploited every few years in demagogic anti-gay get-out-the-vote campaigns.

"But now the holy-rolling monster the GOP's Dr. Frankensteins have created has thrown off the shackles, fled the lab, and is currently leading in Iowa. And the party doesn't know what to do."


In Missouri we are all too familiar with the religious right's hold on the Republican party. Right here in Jackson County we see Senator Matt Bartle attacking on Warren Erdman (former chief of staff to Senator Kit Bond) for an appointment to the board of curators because of right to life issues. We see Sen. Chris Koster quiting the Republican party based, in part, on the stem cell issue. We also see the far right's favorite political consultant, Jeff Roe, being retained by Huckabee to push him on his blog, The Source. It should also be noted that the religious right - who is already disenchanted with Gov. Matt Blunt - can't be happy with Blunt backing Mitt Romney. There are too many examples of the religious right dictating Republican policy to even mention.

The Republicans have a problem here in Missouri. Folks are tired of Jeff Roe attacks. They are sick of extreme candidates. In Missouri, swing voters decide every election and suburban women ain't going to vote for a Huckabee. Here's hoping Huckabee gets the nod.

Matt Blunt being pro-stem cell research and the religious right equating stem cell research to abortion and the business community supporting stem cell has been great fun to watch.

Poll: Huckabee Looks Stable in Iowa

ONE WEEK LEFT -NEW LA TIMES POLL

Huckabee Maintains Lead in Iowa;
Romney Looks Stable in N.H.

The freshest numbers from the 2008 presidential race are breaking at this hour. The L.A. Times/Bloomberg poll shows good news for Hillary Clinton and better news for Mike Huckabee in Iowa.

IOWA G.O.P.
Mike Huckabee 37%
Mitt Romney 23%
John McCain 11%
Fred Thompson 11%
(+/-6 points)

IOWA DEMS (Likely Caucus-goers)
Hillary Clinton 29%
Barack Obama 26%
John Edwards 25%
(+/-4 points)

Who finishes third in Iowa matters on both sides. McCain's best scenario: Huck knocks of Romney in Iowa and is able to eek out a third place to launch himself into New Hampshire. The Democratic side looks much more chaotic. But even if Hillary finishes third, don't expect her to quit.

I knew the 2moons dil so I always try my best to earn them more and more to make myself strong. I have never played the game before, at the beginning I did not know what is so I went to kill the monsters with the 2moons gold that I earned with myself in the game. I will duty bound to a friend to help brush the 2moon dil together with my friends. I spend a good relationship is then fly to tears. If my levels are very high, I can go to buy 2moons dil more and more and I will not depend on my friends to help me to earn them. I get some cheap 2moons gold as the gifts to encourage me.

Even it got me crazy enough to buy Guild Wars Prophecies with some my own GuildWars Gold and Nightfall and Eye of the North. I wonder to know why are not you guys and gals who like the PVP concept buying this awesome game. okey, it is expensive to buy gw gold all parts. If you lack the GuildWars money, but it is worth it and no monthly costs and the game gets updated weekly at least. Once again, if anyone wants to play Guild Wars sometime add me to friends here Guild Wars Gold. And realize how much cheap gw gold I bought in the last couple of weeks, months, years. So I found this Guild Wars Factions and installed it.

This step depends on your skill rank, for lower magic ranks get 4 fast notice arrow skills and your cabal gold. Of course, if you have more cabal money, you can get more in the game.
