2016 election

I, Virginia Bergman, pledge not to vote for a male presidential candidate in 2016 just because he's male.

"the most bullying and gay-baiting power brokers of the religious right"

In his NY Times column this morning, Frank Rich speculates about the diminishing influence of "the most bullying and gay-baiting power brokers of the religious right" as evidenced by the success of Rudy Giuliani's campaign.

In reference to Tony Perkins, James Dobson, Gary Bauer, et al, Rich says:

These self-promoting values hacks don’t speak for the American mainstream. They don’t speak for the Republican Party. They no longer speak for many evangelical ministers and their flocks. The emperors of morality have in fact had no clothes for some time. Should Rudy Giuliani end up doing a victory dance at the Republican convention, it will be on their graves

Rich concludes:

Whichever candidate or party lands in the White House, this much is certain: Inauguration Day 2009 is at the very least Armageddon for the reigning ayatollahs of the American right.
