Whoops! The Wingnuts are Restless

You know that base of fundamental, wacko, jumped-by-Jesus wingnut christians that Bush and Rove Dropped trou' for ...well they are saying they may bolt if Rudy is the nominee. Whoa, the wingnuts really hate Rudy:
Alarmed at the possibility that the Republican Party might pick Rudolph W. Giuliani as its presidential nominee despite his support for abortion rights, a coalition of influential Christian conservatives is threatening to back a third-party candidate.

The threat emerged from a group that broke away for separate discussions at a meeting Saturday in Salt Lake City of the Council for National Policy, a secretive conservative networking group. Participants said the smaller group included James C. Dobson of Focus on the Family, who is perhaps its most influential member; Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council; Richard A. Viguerie, the direct-mail pioneer; and dozens of other politically oriented conservative Christians.

Almost everyone present at the smaller group’s meeting expressed support for a written resolution stating that “if the Republican Party nominates a pro-abortion candidate we will consider running a third-party candidate,” participants said.
This "secretive conservative networking group" really is comprised of the most virulent bible thumpers and it seems they are sending a message to the GOP powers-that-be. Just in case you are wondering where Bush's 35% approval comes from...this is it.

This is similar to what happens when you train your parrot to say "Here kitty, kitty."
