The Big Split?

I’ve said a hundred times that I’d like to see the GOP die, and in its place arise two parties, one more libertarian in nature and the other one full of the Christian zombies who seem to be running things now.  Well, apparently I’m not the only one.

With former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani leading in many national polls for the Republican Party nomination in 2008, some conservative groups are looking for ways to defeat him. One conservative activist has even threatened a religion-focused third party challenger if he wins the nomination next year, according to a blog post at the Christian Broadcasting Network.

“From the moment Giuliani is nominated—if they are stupid enough to do it next February—a third party will be started emphasizing pro-family issues and conservative economic and foreign policies, and probably within a decade or two that 3rd party will be the dominant party along with the pro-abortion and left-wing Democrat Party,” according to an e-mail written by an anonymous, prominent conservative activist. Excerpts of the e-mail were posted by David Brody, CBN News’s Senior National Correspondent.

At a weekly luncheon hosted at the conservative Free Congress Foundation, Brody also noted that a group called Conservatives For Peace was handing around a leaflet warning against a Giuliani nomination.

“If the Republican Party nominates Rudy Giuliani as its candidate for either president or vice president, I will personally work to defeat the GOP ticket in 2008,” the flyer reads. “If the Republican Party nominates him, it is saying to the American people that it has lost all purpose except the raw political desire to hold power. It will be time to put the GOP out of its misery.”

Brody puts these warnings in perspective, but still suggests they are notable.

“Look, this group isn’t a Focus on the Family or a Family Research Council but it gives you a sense of how some are already plotting to destroy Giuliani,” he writes.

It just shows how far some people will go to protect their God-given right to hate fags.
