    Recommended by:

    Card identifies himself as a Democrat [...]

    Card is a vocal supporter of many aspects of George W. Bush's leadership style, the war on terror, aspects of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and aspects of the USA PATRIOT Act.[...]

    He has described himself as a Moynihan Democrat, and later as a "Tony Blair" Democrat, saying he has to look outside the U.S. for someone representative for his views now that Moynihan has died and the Democrats oppose Bush. He has written columns condemning extremist liberals as being part of what's wrong with America, and praises Zell Miller for trying to save the Democratic Party. During the 2004 election Card wrote many articles supporting the Bush/Cheney ticket, criticizing John Kerry, and lambasting his own state's senator, John Edwards, as being absurd, insincere, and an opportunistic shill. [...] He has also been a staunch defender of Fox News, stating that "It's a good feeling to hear about our war from people who actually think it would be a good thing if we win."

    Card has also frequently criticized precipitate action on global warming [...] Similarly, he has voiced distrust of Darwinism as dogma in opposition to Intelligent Design

    &c &c...

    Spineless. Blue. Slow. Leaves trail of slime. Hit it with something - if it doesn't hit back, it's a Democrat. -- Bucky looking at a slug in "Get Fuzzy"
