Giuliani stumping with the Christianists

Rather than treat this personally, I'm tempted to look at it as a the cost of doing business as a Republican presidential candidate -- breaking bread with the End Timers.

First McCain waded into the waters by nuzzling up to Jerry "I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians... [helped 9/11 happen]" Falwell and now Giuliani has his Christianist.

It should be entertaining watching Giuliani evolve (or intelligently design, or whatever) from a gay-OK, pro-choice Roman Catholic NYC mayor into a fire-breathing apocalyptic in search of women's bodies to control. Can't wait.

But we don't have to wait long. Jesselee points out that "Rudolph Giuliani will headline a campaign fundraiser next month for ex-Christian Coalition leader Ralph Reed."

Reed, the young upstart, also happens to be a Jack Abramoff crony, with roughly the same penchant for truthtelling that Abramoff has. Reed, a staunch opponent of gambling, was found to have promoted the interests of something called eLottery. Somehow his claims that he didn't know were undermined a.) by common sense (you didn't know whom you were working for?) and b.) by earlier emails referring to the company by name.

Or is he so squeaky clean he didn't even know what Lottery meant?

Anyway, good luck to Rudy Giuliani and his Christianist against John McCain and his. Jesus should really love this smackdown.
