How unique in all of the world, that one nation that was the resting point from people groups all across the world. It didn’t matter the color of their skin, it didn’t matter their language, it didn’t matter their economic status. Once you got here, we were all the same. Isn’t that remarkable?

In the Words of Michele Bachmann

(Probably a surprise to America’s early slaves and slaveowners, and the many different minority groups who were effectively second-class citizens for much of U.S. history.)

truth-has-a-liberal-bias:

  • Rick Santorum: Compared health care reform to drug dealing, said it will make Christians “less than what God created you to be,” said it would “destroy the country”; compared gay relationships to “man-on-dog sex”; slammed the Supreme Court decision ensuring the right to access contraception.
  • Herman Cain: The most unabashedly anti-Muslim candidate in the field (and that’s saying something!), proposed a religious test for office for Muslims who wanted to work for his administration.
  • Newt Gingrich: Where to begin? Maybe with the threat of a “secular atheist country… dominated by radical Islamists.” Or with the threat of “gay and secular fascism.” Or with his entire record as Speaker of the House of Representatives. You choose.
  • Ron Paul: Supposedly the most “libertarian” figure in the GOP, but does not support personal liberties for women or gay people. Still thinks the Voting Rights Act was a bad idea and we were better off before FEMA.
  • Jon Huntsman: The supposedly “moderate” candidate in the GOP field, enacted a highly regressive flat tax as governor of Utah, tried to eliminate corporate taxes, and banned second-trimester abortions.
  • Michele Bachmann: Calls homosexuality “personal enslavement,” wants to reduce government to “its original size,” says those who believe the science of evolution are part of a “cult following.”
  • Mitt Romney: Believes whatever the Republican base wants him to believe, which these days is pretty far off the rails.
  • Rick Perry: Kicked off his presidential campaign by holding an event with the most extreme leaders of the Religious Right he could find, including a pastor who thinks that God sent Hitler to hunt the Jews and another who thinks that the Statue of Liberty is a “demonic idol.”

This is the field that the Party of Reagan has produced to appeal to a right-moving and increasingly isolated base — where the architect of health care reform has to run against himself, where the most libertarian still isn’t willing to cross the Religious Right, and where the highest-polling has floated the idea of his state seceding from the union.

Gotta love the Republicans, man.
