"All I can say is I refused to sign the Grover Norquist pledge, I'm openly gay, I support gay marriage and I'm pro-choice."

This would be the part where you explain to people why the hell you're a Republican, then.

sweetmelissa31: As we've seen from the last few years, if you're a Republican in Congress you have to vote lockstep with them, so it doesn't matter what your personal beliefs are.


Tisei should get a truck, that would broaden his appeal with independent voters.

Are they saying they are Part of the 1%, so must be a Republican. But they only moderatly want to screw the other 99%, especially the gay ones.

zappaisfrank: Because they haven't figured out or come to realize that the public at large has a very negative view of the Tea Party, and with good reason.


No, no, NO. The public-at-large LOVES the Tea Party. It's the liberal media that views the Tea Party unfavorably. The liberal media will never show you how popular the Tea Party really is. You have to go to fair and balanced Fox to get that truth.

Yea... right... I'm sure it has nothing to do with the fact that the republican party has intentionally purged all the real moderates and what passes as a moderate now would have been called an extremist lunatic not three years ago.

The party of personal responsibility blames everyone else for its own self-inflicted wounds yet again. What a shock.

Can we all just take a moment to realize how utterly hilarious it is that it only took two years for the GOP to go from "I SUPPORT THE TEA PARTY' to being offended about being accused of supporting the tea party?

Because it's pretty hilarious.
