It remains to be seen if the Mainstream GOP will develop enough testicular tissue to slap the teavangelist minority into a stinging awareness of what “minority” means.

The Religious Fanatics (The Jesus Freaks): It doesn’t matter if you act like a Christian…as long as you say you are! LOUD! And OFTEN!
