The road to Des Moines

Tom Tancredo, who has about as much chance of getting the Republican presidential nomination as I do, had the line of the night in the GOP debate:
Representative Tom Tancredo of Colorado said he had witnessed, in the course of his campaign, candidates move to more conservative positions on guns, abortion and immigration. “You know it’s beginning to sound like a Baptist tent revival meeting here,” Mr. Tancredo said. “And I’m glad to see these conversions. But I must tell you, I trust those conversions when they happen on the road to Damascus and not on the road to Des Moines.”
The stage was like the Beijing Zoo last night, what with all those pander bears.

Giuliani, who is polling best against leading Democrats at this point, is not backing away from his pro-life, pro-gay rights, and pro-gun control positions. Unless Republican politics have undergone a complete transformation, he will never survive the primary process.
