The Run On Bible Thumpers Is On November 13, 2007Posted by fitsnews in 2008 Presidential Primaries, Satire.
GET ‘EM WHILE THEY’RE HOT!
FITSNews – November 13, 2007 – There’s a point in every fantasy baseball draft when somebody breaks the seal on selecting relief pitchers, and all of a sudden the next six picks in a row are all relief pitchers. It usually occurs during the sixth or seventh round, and if you miss the run, there’s a good chance you’ll also miss the fantasy postseason. That phenomenon is not at all unlike the current run on Bible Thumpers we’re witnessing in the 2008 GOP presidential primary.
First it was Mitt Romney getting the nod from the ultra-right wingers at Bob Jones University. Then it was Rudy Giuliani feeling the love from Christian Coalition founder Pat Robertson. Today it’s Fred Thompson receiving the endorsement of the National Right to Life Something or Other.
GOP frontrunners looking to shore up their social conservative credentials is all well and good, but this is starting to get ridiculous. For example, we just got a press release from Mike Huckabee‘s campaign saying that the Holy Spirit himself would be endorsing the former Arkansas Governor at a press conference tomorrow in Anderson County, S.C.
