Repub candie John McCain has never had much appeal to the evangelical crowd. These are the folks that love Jesus, the Prince of Peace so much they elected war mongerer Bush - twice. McCain thought his support for killing people would win over the evangelicals but apparently it will take more.
McCain tried reminding them that he wants unwanted babies brought into the world as much as they do and he hates gays too. "No dice!", screeched the anti-gambling gellicle cats. It seems that they cannot forgive him for his desire to heal people using stem cells. One fundie faith healer said:" Jesus used mud and so should we!"
Finally the McCain campaign may have stumbled on a winning strategy. Instead of reminding bible thumpers of the fratricidal brother in Genesis every time they see or hear his name, posters across the bible belt are calling for McAbel for President.
