Rudy Giuliani won the coveted endorsement of religious zealot Pat Robertson and on today's Hardball, Chris Matthews talked with MSNBC's Chuck Todd and Joe Scarborough about some of the insane, hateful and mind boggling statements Robertson has made over the years and what effect it might have on Rudy's campaign.

Scarborough hits it on the head -- Robertson's endorsement is like hitting the jackpot for a Republican candidate and Todd says Robertson's support for Giuliani has a lot to do with seeing the war on terror as a religious war against Islam which trumps social issues in the minds of many end timers. The threat by the far right evangelical groups to support a third party if Giuliani is the GOP candidate is very real and it's not going to go away any time soon, this should be interesting to watch.
