They’re not exactly abused wives. Just neglected ones. As one of my readers notes, you can more or less measure how their fortunes go by how much shrieking, pissing and moaning Andrew Sullivan does over Bush and “the theocrats”. At present, the Moan Level is pretty high, so I fancy the Christian Right isn’t going anywhere (besides where is there to go: Third Party Oblivion?) Abandoning Bush means getting Hillary, which nobody on the Christian Right wants.
