Rudy gets a Pat on his back

by Jeremy Hooper

Pat RobertsonCiting a belief that he'll appoint conservative judges and protect the country from terrorists, longtime gay rights foe Pat Robertson has announced that he is backing one-time (but seemingly not current) gay rights friend Rudy Giuliani in the Republican primary:

Rev. Pat Robertson endorses Rudy Giuliani, despite abortion stance [Newsday]

So let's see here: Twice divorced. Pro-choice. Been known to be comfortable around gay people. A New Yorker. And yet Rudy STILL gets the lauding of this social conservative stalwart? Geez, Mr. Robertson must have missed his "what you preach" practice this week!

Your thoughts

This section of the article seems interesting and I quote.

"Robertson said he was willing to overlook Giulani's pro-abortion rights stance because he takes him at his word that he will appoint "strict constructionist" judges to the Supreme Court and federal bench –- a widely accepted term for judges likely to overturn the landmark Roe v. Wade abortion rights ruling."

So thats the reason why old man Pat is endorsing him. Rudy isn't going to the dirty work, its the judges that Rudy appoints will do the dirty work like overturning Row v. Wade.

All the more reason to get a democrat into office and make sure those re-puke-blicans like Rudy and his spotlight of a head out.

Sam: You're absolutely right. With every passing day, possible Supreme Court nominees become more and more important. And it seems Pat, for one, is willing to set aside his principles in terms of the individual candidate in order to reach the larger goal: A liberty-threatening, right-stacked court.

Der Gubernator, Schwarzenegger, the guy who wines and dines Austrian neo-Nazis is Robertson first pick but he can’t run for President.

So Robertson had to pick one of his two favorites, Rudy Giuliani or Hillary Clinton, about whom he said “Well she’s– tacking to the right as hard as she can tack. And– you know Hillary’s got some good points.” I suppose Robertson flipped a coin.

One of Clintons 'good points' was illustrated when her mentor Bill Clinton appointed homobigot Democrat Judge Karen Nelson Moore to the bench just before he campaigned for and signed DOMA. Judge Moored joined a Bush appointee in the U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals which recently endorsed gaybashing in Kentucky schools.

Dianne Feinstein and a dozen or so democrats recently joined with their Republican cousins in putting racist and gaybasher Mississippian Judge Southwick to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in the Democrat controlled Senate by a vote of 59-38. Even more Democrats voted with their bipartisan Republican cousins to put a gay basher in as Attorney General.

The idea of waiting for the judiciary to ‘grant’ us equality is as practical as the ‘theory’ of lesser evils. That is to say, not very.

With Democrats like these who needs Republicans.

Bush/Clinton/Bush/Clinton = the fix is on.

A Republican politician is a baboon in a people suit with a totalitarian christian attached at the hip. A Democratic politician is a Republican in drag.
