"Faithful Republicans", by Digby

Digby has a great post on the evangelical support for Republicans, and I agree with his sentiment: don't count on evangelicals to be dismayed by piss-poor party leadership over the Foley scandal. They've rationalized their support for the GOP in so many contradictory ways that it's clear this isn't going to change their feelings. That's why they're called the "base", or ironically, the "party faithful."

In my mind there is simply nothing good to be had for America by allowing the GOP to stay in power, and thanks to the GOP's repeated, catastrophic fuck-ups many folks are tuning into this reality. They can't be trusted to do anything right.

This election will be very interesting. We'll get to see just how many unbending crazies there are in this country.
