For the record, I have no problem with arguments about how the GOP has become too religious. I ended my book with pretty much that argument. I opposed Mike Huckabee vociferously because he seemed the quintessential rightwing progressive imbued with a rightwing social gospel. These are all good arguments to make and they have good responses to them. But please drop the nonsense about how the G-O-D people or the Palin people are low brows and beasts. There are low brows and beasts everywhere, on every side of the ideological spectrum. Jonah GoldbergThe Palinistas (aka the people who refuse to accept that the G-d of all 3 Abrahamic religions is the same one) are rather proud of their rejection of anything "intellectual" and show their low browness by attacking those who, unlike Gov. Palin herself, take the time to research and understand issues (and then have the audacity to disagree with the Chritian Orthodoxy) as "elitist". As for being beastly, the fact that hate crimes have increased and children are now discouraged to not only disrespect the President, but also disprespect the Presidency since Obama's win shows an exta degree of borishness from your average partisanship.
