    I think your values are my values, but I don't like your use of the word fundamentalist.  It is a term that certain religions on the right, even cult religions, hide behind that means something entirely different than you mean.

    I think it is eye-catching, and will draw a lot of readers to your excellent diary, but I can imagine a fundamentalist taking advantage of it and saying, "I am a fundamentalist," and meaning the exact opposite of your meaning.  It would be our fault if in our minds we saw him or her (in the case of Palin) as being the type of fundamentalist you claim you are.

    We might elect them and that would be a grievous mistake.
