These politicians will learn very soon that these remarks will render unelectable. Of course we have no one but NOM and their ilk to thank for that because they continue to feed them polls full of false facts.

These candidates appearing with Fischer is more evidence of how the
Grand Old Party (GOP) has fully morphed into the party of the
Grand Old Delusion (GOD).

I don’t think GOP stands for Grand Old Party, but Grunting Old Philanderers.

I don’t recognize the clown interviewing Newt, but when he states that homosexuals are a threat to the freedom of religion, he has passed the point of ignorance and fully embraced the stupidity of religious brainwashing.
