Christianist Democrats

A new trend in the South? A quixotic lone candidacy? We'll see what happens to the race in Mississippi, where one Democrat, John Arthur Eaves, is running as a Christianist, big government Democrat. This coalition has always been there. Bush and Gerson are big-government liberals under their skin, men who hijacked conservatism for Christianist socialism. Their only serious difference with the old Dixiecrats was that they wouldn't tax anyone for the spending - they just borrowed it from the Chinese. But, of course, the ancient home of socially conservative populism is the Democratic party, especially in the South. Maybe Eaves will revive that tradition. I'd rather it happened among Democrats than Republicans.
