Right Turn, Exit Here
Some predicted that when the Right had all three power blocks, the white house, and both houses of congress, and there would be no one else to fight, namely the opposition party, they'd start fighting themselves. Now we're watching Republicans calling for DeLay's exit. It was also predicted by some that as the leaders of the Right have surged to power on the backs of the Extreme Right, they have made that deal with the devil, as it were, and are now beholden to that constituency. And here we are, first with DeLay calling Bush back from Texas to sign the Schiavo bill, now with Frist blasting Dems as anti-Christian. Can't think of a better way to galvanize that tiny 49.5 percent of voters on the other side. Hang on, polls show Republicans are pissed off too. Some polls show as many as 80% disagreed with the moral value meddling in the Schiavo affair, and a majority are now disenchanted with the dumping on any people's faith, even if they're the opposition. Play with fire, you get burned. The party of the Righteous Republicans may experience a righteous backlash sooner than they think. Watch, they will be blindsided by it.
