Right Wing Coalition Unraveling

The right wing coalition between Neo-Conservatives and Religious Supremecists is beginning to unravel. Both sides have long been using the other to achieve political power. Now both sides are jockeying to blame the other for the backlash that is building against their joint leadership. Recent polls reveal that support for the right wing leadership of both the administration and congress has fallen through the floor.

The Neo-Conservatives overreached in pursuit of their objectives by attacking the third rail of American politics -- social security.

Religious Supremecists overreached in pursuit of their goals by politicizing the tragic circumstances around the death of Terri Schiavo and by their campaign to end the filibuster in the Senate.

Now that support for the war in Iraq is declining, the Religious Supremecists who took the lead in generating support for the war in Iraq, are beginning to peel away from the Neo-Conservatives who crafted the policy and plans for the war. The key figure in this latest split is Walter Jones. He says he will offer legislation next week to set a timetable for our withdrawal from Iraq.

Religious Supremecists are clearly beginning to distance themselves from the failed policies of the Neo-conservatives and moving on with their own agenda. Jones is still working hard to legalize the politicization of churches and Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell and Texas Governor Rick Perry are already openly leading Religious Supremecist organizing efforts in their key electoral states.

But, I apologize. That's a wide digression from the point of this post.

This perspective seems to be more informed than Matt Taibbi's recent and more pessimistic take on the Christian Right.

Not sure why that link didn't work. Are comments with Blogger.com not HTML enable for links?

Isefire - You need to put in the whole html coding for links, I believe.
