The endorsement of Rudy Giuliani - the gay-friendly, abortion-tolerant, gun-hostile, former mayor of New York - by the evangelical broadcaster Pat Robertson is breathtaking on all kinds of levels. Didn't Pat once think that 9/11 was a punishment visited on Gotham City by a vengeful God?
There was a wonderful moment at a debate a few months ago when lightning struck nearby while Rudy was talking about abortion - he paused and laughed! Supernatural interventions in human affairs are not for rigorous Rudy. He now gets the "free media" of the Robertson TV empire and its audience, having given nothing in return.
What a mess the religious right is in...
