My first thought when I saw that Richard Land of the Southern Baptist Convention had criticized the nasty way Rudy Giuliani got divorced from Donna Hanover was that Rudy probably isn't worried -- he can just make sure word gets out to the fundies that Hanover was in The People vs. Larry Flynt, and in The Vagina Monologues onstage, and they'll conclude that she's the Whore of Babylon and he'll be just fine.
Then it occurred to me that they might wonder what kind of man would marry a woman who would choose to be in The People vs. Larry Flynt and The Vagina Monologues. Why, he must be a Sodom-on-the-Hudson perverted sexual sicko, too! And he had children with her! Unclean! Unclean!
No, I guess even the GOP thugs Rudy will eventually hire to get him through unpleasant moments on the campaign trail won't bring that up.
ALSO: The National Catholic Register has come out against Giuliani, on anti-abortion grounds. (Though I still have a sneaking suspicion that priests who threatened to deny John Kerry Communion are going to be strangely silent this election cycle.)
Hey, if we want to dilute the conservative vote, maybe we can help encourage Michael Savage, the raving right-wing lunatic talk show host, to run for president. He says he'll decide whether to run once he has 5 million votes answering the question "Should Michael Savage Run for the Presidency?" at his Web site. The total is over 3 million now, so vote early and often!
