Many of the Teabagger persuasion got their asses handed to them yesterday.

Or, as Rick Santorum so eloquently stated:

Two of their main constituencies are declining in numbers: christian conservatives and angry, old white men. Soon the God's Own Party will become what they fear the most, a Minority.

They are dwindling fast. If I were them I would put the evangelicals politely in their place.

Until they do that they have no hope of landing the presidency anytime soon.

They already are. Only days have passed since the lost and they're trying to pretend they've always been pro-immigration. Historical revisionism is pathetic, no matter who tries it.

I find it had to believe that the Republicans will change their attitude toward any group of people that doesn't march in lock step with themselves. Many of their evangelicals (conservative christians) apparently stayed home because they could not force themselves to vote for a Mormon. That's getting really exclusionary. In both the 2008 and the 2012 Party Platforms they opposed any path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. I hope Latinos don't fall for Republicans' attempts to co-op them like the Tea Party did.

If they want to be viable they need o ground up rebuild the party. And yes it would include telling the Christian conservative bible beater crowd no once in a while.
