Cunning

Sounds like a shrewd move to me.

It sounds like another instance of 'party identification' meaning absolutely squat.

there are plenty of atheist

there are plenty of atheist republicans.  i've known several in my life, including a college roommate.  the only reason we don't hear about them more often is, surprise, surprise, most of them are talked over and cowed into silence by the evangelicals and the "moral majority" who have monopolized the party's image.  many of them are quite irritated by this.

ol' milton friedman himself was a professed agnostic.

"I have never felt comfortable around people who talk about their feelings for Jesus, or any other deity for that matter, because they are usually none too bright. . . . Or maybe 'stupid' is a better way of saying it; but I have never seen much point in getting heavy with either stupid people or Jesus freaks, just as long as they don't bother me. In a world as weird and cruel as this one we have made for ourselves, I figure anybody who can find peace and personal happiness without ripping off somebody else deserves to be left alone. They will not inherit the earth, but then neither will I. . . . And I have learned to live, as it were, with the idea that I will never find peace and happiness, either. But as long as I know there's a pretty good chance I can get my hands on either one of them every once in a while, I do the best I can between high spots."
--Hunter S. Thompson
