Of course, this is no surprise to most of us, but it is interesting that the Straussian/Machiavellian aspects of the Bush-Cabal has made the mainstream media.  Maybe this will lesson the Neo-Con-Republican grip on the Christian Right; therefore perhaps, ending the formers’ fascist reign…

Let’s hope so ... but IIRC, Karl Rove isn’t Christian, not even sure if he’s religious. So this may end up being a story more about Rove than the other “true believers” in the Bush cabinet, including Bush himself ...

I am pretty confident that they are believers.

(It may also be that the evangelicals just overstepped their bounds, asking for things that even Bush doesn’t believe he has the political capital to provide. It wouldn’t be the first time ...)
