  •  Huckabee and Giuliani represent the next step (22+ / 0-)

    in the continued evolution of the GOP.

    Giuliani represents the movement towards fascism: perpetual warmongering, a police state, and unbridled corporate rule.

    Huckabee represents a movement towards theocracy, an openly Christianist state where people are judged according to how well they adhere to a narrow, dogmatic creed.

    Fortunately for us, these two branches of the GOP are fighting each other now. But if one day they were to be joined, we would be doomed.

    They were joined once before. What made Bush successful is that he was a pro-business candidate who could play a populist on TV for the Christian right. What kept it from being a complete disaster was that Bush was at bottom a lazy plutocrat, not a true believer.

    What would happen if we elected a fundamentalist president who was acceptable to big business? Who shared Giuliani's aggression and narcissism, while believing fervently that it was his duty to bring about the Rapture?

    So that that day will never come, I hope Huckabee goes down in flames before he can come anywhere near the nomination.
