Faus­tian bar­gain?

The Washington Times Weekly - - National -

Pat Buchanan says “the once great house of con­ser­vatism is a Tower of Ba­bel,” and warns Repub­li­cans against nom­i­nat­ing for­mer New York Mayor Ru­dolph W. Gi­u­liani.

“A Gi­u­liani pres­i­dency would rep­re­sent the re­turn and fi­nal tri­umph of the Re­pub­li­can­ism that con­ser­va­tives went into pol­i­tics to purge from power,” Mr. Buchanan writes in the Nov. 5 is­sue of the Amer­i­can Con­ser­va­tive.

“A Gi­u­liani pres­i­dency would rep­re­sent re­pu­di­a­tion by the party of the moral, so­cial and cul­tural con­tent that, with anti-com­mu­nism, once sep­a­rated it from lib­eral Democrats and de­fined it as an in­sti­tu­tion.

“Rudy of­fers the Right the ul­ti­mate Faus­tian bar­gain: re­ten­tion of power at the price of one’s soul.”
