Religious Right hypocrisy watch: Robertson endorses Rudy

Pat Robertson’s endorsement of Rudy Giuliani says two things, basically.
1. The Religious Right is ultimately about power, not political issues.

2. James Dobson’s threat of a third-party candidacy is thin soup; Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s endorsement of Rudy a couple of weeks back pretty much put paid on that notion; this is, in essence, the final nail. (It’s worth noting that Sam Brownback today endorsed McCain while specifically saying the GOP wouldn’t select a pro-choice candidate. Say it all you want, Sam, it doesn’t make it true.)
