Republicans trade blows at fiery debate (Jonathan Martin, Oct 22, 2007, Politico)

After two weeks of sparring from afar, the top GOP presidential candidates took their attacks up close Sunday, using the first round of their debate here to question one another’s conservative credentials. [...]

Thompson, showing a degree of passion unseen in his first debate appearance two weeks ago, offered perhaps the toughest charges of the night.

He blasted Giuliani on abortion, immigration, gun control, taxes and the former New York mayor’s support for Democratic Gov. Mario Cuomo's reelection bid in 1994.

“So I simply disagree with him those issues,” said the former Tennessee senator. “And he sides with Hillary Clinton on each of those issues I just mentioned.”

The first most people hear of what the Mayor actually believes in is when his opponents mention it. And then they realize he isn't one of them.

Romney: Beliefs won't influence my presidency (Eric Pfeiffer, October 22, 2007, Washington Times)

Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney said yesterday that he fully accepts the teachings of his Mormon religion but that as president he would not take dictates from the leaders of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

So why don't we dig up Madeleine Murray O'Hair and nominate her?
