As always, speaking for the Republican hierarchy.
Dear fundies – thanks for voting; now step to the back of the f*cking bus.
It’s hard to blame Ed for getting frustrated. His party can’t win without religious right votes, and they can’t win if they run on the medieval agenda of the GOP’s more extreme fundies. Too bad for the old coalition the Jesus voters don’t seem ready to settle any longer for lip service and an occasional schiavogasm. Having ridden the back of the bus for going on thirty years religious voters have clearly realized that they might do better if they get out and walk.
