Souljah Moment? With the midterms over, Bush has a little breathing room with his base. So explicitly whacking Robertson and Falwell over their comments on Islam and Mohammed isn't as bold as it seems. In addition, the religious right is to the GOP's base what the unions are to the Dem base: something of a vestigial tail. Bush risks far less by taking issue than by standing pat.
