Why aren’t things going better for God’s Chosen Ones?

I guess the Dobson, Robertson, Falwell crowd are a bit dismayed with the list of GOP Presidential candidates. In fact:

It wasn’t so long ago that conservatives believed that George Bush’s presidency would usher in a political realignment that would last for decades. But as the right looks forward to the next election, something close to panic is setting in. Surveying the leading G.O.P. contenders for 2008, direct-mail guru Richard Viguerie pronounces “not a one of them is worthy of support from conservatives.”

Says Craig Shirley, a public relations executive who represents many conservative groups and who has written a book on the Reagan revolution: “There’s anger, there’s angst, there’s dismay in the conservative movement.” Some activists, Shirley adds, have even begun talking quietly among themselves about forming a third party.

Oh be still my seething heart. This is just too much to hope for!

A third party?

Go for it guys --- please.

Have they learned nothing from Ralph Nader's presidential runs? I mean, honestly!
