Pat Robertson endorses Giuliani—who cares?

http://www.jewishjournal.com/blog/item/pat_robertson_endorses_giuliani_who_cares/

The New York Times, and their veteran reporter of the social conservatives beat, David D. Kirkpatrick, make a big mistake in today’s story about televangelist Pat Robertson endorsing the Republican presidential candidate who has made most evangelicals so comfortable.

Rudolph W. Giuliani scored a coup today by winning the support of Pat Robertson, who, as one of the nation’s best-known televangelists, could help Mr. Giuliani reassure Republicans who are wary of his support for abortion rights and gay rights.

See, right there, they assume that Robertson, the same guy who said on air that the United States should seize the opportunity to assassinate Hugo Chavez, has any cultural currency. In the opinion of a twentysomething evangelical who reluctantly remains a Republican, Robertson’s relevancy is deader than Jerry Falwell’s.
