C'mon, as if republicans have a monopoly for electing idiots.<quoted text>
And yet they get voted into office. We have republicans in office who want to ban all abortion, including when the mother's life is in danger.
You say that the women you know wouldn't have an abortion, but you don't know that. No woman can even say "I will never have an abortion." Until a woman has been in that situation and is told "If we don't abort, then this pregnancy likely will kill you," she doesn't know what she will do.
Marion Barry gets re-elected after smoking crack. Jessie Jackson gets re-elected despite being MIA, involved in an affair scandal, and subject to ethics violation probes.
F', I bet you anything, Hilary Clinton will probably have strong support to run for President in the next election, despite a damning report on how the state department was run under her, which lead to our diplomat in Libya being thrown to the wolves despite pleas for more security. She can't even manage the state department and many folks will think she's Presidential material.
No, I'm sorry, republicans do not have a monopoly when it comes to electing idiots.
There is the religious right aspect of the republican party and that is where most of these nut jobs come from get their support. There are a lot of fiscal conservative republicans who do not share these values, however. Very different animals.
