As a Republican, you still get to hate those beef-fed crypto-monarchists on the so-called "Religious Right." Although he's often depicted by the liberal media as some sort of Taliban-like spokesmodel for the entire Republican Party, Rev. Falwell and his Fisher Price-haired ilk are in fact regarded by most thinking GOPers as fat, embarrassing, drunken half-cousins crashing the Capitalist Christmas Party. The nice thing about joining the Republican Party, Mercury reader, is that you will dilute their nattering malfeasance. Rejoice!
