Should Barack Obama be impeached?
Do you believe Barack Obama was born in the United States?
Do you think Barack Obama is a socialist?
Do you believe Barack Obama wants the terrorists to win?
Do you believe ACORN stole the 2008 election?
Do you believe Sarah Palin is more qualified to be president than Barack Obama?
Do you believe Barack Obama is a racist who hates white people?
Do you believe your state should secede from the United States?
Should openly gay men and women be allowed to teach in public schools?
Should contraceptive use be outlawed?
Do you believe the birth control pill is abortion?
This shows that 1/2 to 3/4 of Republicans are, as Bartlett said at the link, either insane or mind-numbingly stupid. How can you have an intelligent political conversation with a person who thinks Sarah Palin is more qualified than Obama to be president? How can you have an intelligent moral conversation with someone who thinks contraception should be illegal or that gays should be barred from teaching?
These are the people below the Keyes Horizon. If I were one of the sane few Republicans, I would be embarrassed by having the same voting registration as they do. I would be especially concerned that the wackos determine who wins primaries, and they nominate people who are morally and intellectually repugnant. Can you imagine being a sane Republican in Michele Bachmann's district? It would feel so creepy.
While I can understand (if not approve) voting for Reagan or George H.W. Bush, voting for someone who wants to teach creationism in public schools, to cut taxes as a solution for every problem, and to outlaw contraception is a grave error for a sane citizen. It's just nuts. We are approaching a point where voting Republican is a moral fault.
