    The "true" GOP has been able to successfully exploit the religious right in an effort to enlarge their base by pandering to their "values-oriented" needs.

    Now that 2 or 3 elections have been handed to the GOP thanks to the unholy union of Rove's strategy and Ralph's minions, it's only natural that the religious wing of the GOP would start to want more than just lip service.  

    It'll be very interesting to see whether the party can suppress a messy power struggle between the traditional conservatives, the neocons, and the religious right.  If they do manage to keep it down in 2006, I don't think they'll be able to sustain it through 2008.

    All speculation, of course, but if I was a religious conservative, I'd start to wonder why the party hasn't really delivered on any of its major promises.
