What are they putting in their tea?

Postby Brian Jordan » Tue May 20, 2014 9:44 am

An article on the apparent demise of the Tea Party in USA Republican territory contains this gem
Polling in Georgia shows Paul Broun and Phil Gingrey, Tea Party-backed members of Congress, trailing badly before today’s vote. Mr Broun said during his campaign that evolution and the Big Bang theory are merely “lies straight from the pit of hell”.
And they wonder why they're trailing?

Perhaps half the Tea Partiers are also of the fundamentalist religious right (the fundamentalist religious right has certainly embraced the Tea Party); this is more evidence that the fundamenalists are politically on their way out. They've also backed the wrong horse on gay rights. Public opinion is turning against them. What does one expect of a movement that is one stop short of East Ham?
