The Weekly Standard:
So, a good night for for the lowest denominator, a bad night for the GOP. America got to see a vaguely threatening parade of gun fetishists, flat worlders, Mars Explorers, Confederate flag lovers and zombie-eyed-Bible-wavers as well as various one issue activists hammering their pet causes.
So they think the questions unfairly represented the current GOP? Fine. Which questions? Which questions were plucked from the fringe?
I am betting that I can find someone in the top 500 of the TTLB blogroll who identifies as a Republican who has asked/stated/argued EVERY question asked last night, whether it be Mars exploration (I think the hardest one to link to the GOP) to the Confederate Flag to gun rights to the immigration stances to the biblical literalism portrayed last night.
So which questions were from the “fringe?” Fill me in. I am all ears. Because that IS the current Republican party- the lowest common denominator.
PS- Doesn’t the fact that a retired gay General scared the living shit out of the blogosphere’s bravest and brightest conservative stalwarts make the case for gays in the military? I mean, if you can make the Keyboard Commandos cringe, imagine what you can do to less hardy souls like Iraqi insurgents?
*** Update #2 ***
Still waiting. And while you are at it, nutters, explain to me how a Republican President is going to work with the Democratic supermajority in the House and Senate when they can’t even handle a question from a John Edwards supporter without wilting?
