Apparently, being on the fringe of the right wing is still too liberal for some Republicans

Apparently, being on the fringe of the right wing is still too liberal for some Republicans
STUPID!

During his Fox News show on Tuesday night, right-wing pundit Sean Hannity attacked a new ad campaign soon to be appearing in New York City subway stations that raises awareness about atheism. The ad, sponsored by The Big Apple Coalition of Reason, reads: A million New Yorkers are good without God. Are you?

These ads inform New Yorkers that a million or more of their neighbors are good without God, said Michael De Dora Jr., the executive director for the New York branch of the Center for Inquiry. That is, a million of us have found or created natural morality, and lead good, productive, and meaningful lives without appeal to religious dogma or God.

Sensing an opportunity to exploit the ads for political benefit, Hannity told his audience that a Christian group could never get away with airing ads like that:

"Can you imagine the outrage if a Christian group put pro-God ads in the New York City subways? What outrage."

Uh, Sean...

BACK TO THE 13th CENTURY!

Virginia's GOP candidate for Attorney General, Ken Cuccinelli says:

"My view is that homosexual acts, not homosexuality, but homosexual acts are wrong. Theyre intrinsically wrong. And I think in a natural law based country its appropriate to have policies that reflect that."

And of course, RACISM!

Perhaps no one noticed. Perhaps no one cared. But hours after a liberal news forum brought attention to a series of days old controversial photos on the Republican National Committee's Facebook page, the photos were finally taken down.

Among them was a picture of President Barack Obama eating fried chicken, subtitled with a call to prohibit interracial marriage. The photo's caption read: "Miscegenation is a CRIME against American Values. Repeal Loving v. Virginia."

Miscegenation refers to the "marriage or cohabitation between a man and woman of different races." Loving v. Virginia was a landmark Supreme Court case that, in 1967, struck down all of the US's laws against interracial marriage.

1. I'm seeing where both Newt and Palin supported 3rd party candidates
in local congressional elections - the Publican candidates were not Right enough for them. Palin stated there was no difference between the Republican candidate and the Democrats.
They have taken the GOP to gibbering idiocy, and are not yet satisfied with it.

3. Newt is supporting the Republican. Teabag Tim Pawlenty and Palin are supporting the Teabag Candidate
Newt was talking sense yesterday. "You can't govern with fringe 20%" Probably won't last though.

4. You are correct - I misread the story earlier due to being half asleep.
Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

Newt is certainly a stopped clock.
