In terms of the Republican party’s relationship to “social conservatives”, Huckabee nails it:
“They were more than happy for us to come to the rallies and stand in lines for hours to cheer on the candidates, appreciated us putting up the yard signs, going out and putting out the cards on peoples doors and making phone calls to the phone banks and — really appreciated all of our votes. But when they got elected, behind closed doors, they would laugh at us and speak with scorn and derision that we were, as one article I think once said “the easily led.” So there’s been almost this sort of, it’s okay if you guys get a seat on the bus, but don’t ever think about telling us where the bus is going to go.”
(Hat tip: Kevin Drum).
As everybody knows, the real objective of the Republican party is upward redistribution and crony capitalism. Anyway, for what it’s worth, I think it will be Obama vs. McCain, and Obama will win narrowly. You read it here first!
